The NL game has only been over for 40 minutes, and already I’m tired of hearing about how the Cubs lost because of a mind-cramp interference play by a fan. Spare us all. Eight runs scored in the inning in question, and none came as the direct result of that play. If the Cubbies want to point fingers, they can start with Alex Gonzalez and move on from there. They only have themselves to blame for their Chernobyl-scale meltdown. And while I’m at it, let me say that I’ve had just about enough of the media’s predictable orgy of fatalism. The Cubs are not cursed. Neither are the Sox. If either team loses it will be because they are outplayed by a superior opponent. Period. There are no predetermined outcomes. Both of these series are still up in the air..
