Moises Alou thought we’d stop talking about Steve Bartman by now

If you thought Steve Bartman’s name would disappear from the baseball world once the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, you were (sadly) straight-up wrong. And former Cubs outfielder Moises Alou is one of those people. Alou, the left fielder that Bartman made contact with on the foul ball at Wrigley Field in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, told the media on Monday how he was “very...

Alou’s, Morgan Freeman, Sinatra & Gretzky Have Eaten At Soon-To-Be-Gone Moe’s Diner

I’ve never written about a restaurant for a baseball website but this is an exception. Back in the late 1980s and early-to-mid 1990s, I was a Montreal Expos beat writer and I would frequent the 24-hour diner Moe’s Casse-Croute du Coin located just west of the fabled Montreal Forum on the southwest corner of Lambert-Closse and de Maisonneuve Blvd. I lived not far away, less than...

Chicago Cubs Fans Want Steve Bartman At Wild Card Game Against Pittsburgh Pirates

The 2003 National League Championship Series was historic for all the wrong reasons if you ask Chicago Cubs fans. It was supposed to be the year of the lovable losers. Instead, the Florida (now Miami) Marlins escaped with an NLCS win and eventually defeated the New York Yankees in the World Series. And all of Chicago blamed one man — Steve Bartman. As we all know, Moises Alou,...

It’s Time to Forgive Steve Bartman

As Cubs fans everywhere remember what could have been, somewhere a certain Steve Bartman continues to receive death threats. 11 years on, Cubs fans still look longingly as the 2003 Cubs team, a plucky group of players, arguably the most successful since 1945. The Cubs were tantalizingly close to a World Series, the fanbase was so ready to shed the decades long stigma derived from...
