‘Another stinkin’ choke job’

Mike Nadel has another great column on the death of the Cubs’ 2008 season.

CHICAGO — It’s not a stinkin’ curse, folks. It’s just another stinkin’ choke job by a franchise that officially has entered its next 100 years of failing when games matter most.

In 2009, after the Chicago Cubs complete their 162-game schedule, can’t they simply save their beaten-down fans some grief – and themselves some embarrassment – by forfeiting their three playoff games?

It would be quicker, it would be neater and it would let them get a jump on their tee times.

The Scrubs are beginning to remind me of the Atlanta Braves of the recent past: great season, lousy post-season.
