I'm a jumble of emotions right now. But mostly angry.

I seriously think the Cubs just gave up after the Loney grand slam. The dugout was dead for all 3 games, someone should have showed some leadership and tried to rally the team.

I've been a Cubs fan since 1984 and this is the one that hurts the most probably because it was the first Cubs postseason since 1989 where I was able to see every pitch. 1984 was a heartbreaker too but my mom and I were fortunate enough to go see Game 1 where the Cubs whooped on the Padres.

Here are a couple of things that could ease the heartbreak over the long winter:

I want Soriano gone NOW. I'm tired of the hop, I'm tired of the long stints on the DL and I'm tired of paying him $14 million a year to suck in the postseason. (I also wouldn't be sad to see Aramis ubsgo...he's a talented player but I don't think he cares half the time)

Mark Cuban needs to be allowed to buy the team. I don't even care right now if he wants to tear down Wrigley Field and move the team to Schaumburg. After 100 years of suckitude something drastic needs to be done.

Sorry, man.

Think of the Red Sox. And remember that Cuban bringing his championship ways to Wrigley (to tear it down?) won't necessarily be the answer. Look what he's done for the Dallas Mavericks.

And don't forget that the Dodgers have good pitching and that the Cubs won a lot of games with this team. I am amazed at how easily the Dodgers won. Out here we want to make sure it wasn't a dream.

I hope now you can support the Dodgers, as I would have done for the Cubs most definitely.

You know, I'm sad too... I'm in Dodger country, but a Cubs fan, and didn't get even a chance, did I? *sigh*
