Saying Goodbye to the 2015 Cubs is Hard

As I sat and watched the second through ninth innings of Game 4 where the end of the Cubs 2015 season had pretty much already been decided after the first inning, I tried to appreciate the small moments we still had left with this team.

WATCH: Cespedes nails Castro with rocket throw home

By now you would think MLB teams have enough video evidence and scouting reports to know that trying to score a run when Yoenis Cespedes fields a ball is probably a bad idea. The dude has a cannon for a right arm that will gun baserunners down. The latest example of that happened in the fifth inning of Saturday’s NLCS Game 1 between the Cubs and Mets. With the score tied 1-1 and...
