"Let's forget this game and move on."
I think I've heard it about a million times this year.
Last night the Cubs lost to the worst professional baseball team in years, the 2012 Houston Astros, by 9 runs.
Astro pitcher Lucas Harrel got his 10th win on a team with only 39.
So, that guy must be pretty good for real, and not just because he was pitching against the Cubs.
Anyway, in the post game I think I heard Todd Hollandsworth say The Line again, and it made me think historically for some reason.
Here's hoping that some time in the next couple years, Mr. Sveum will be saying something more like 1908 Cub manager and first baseman Frank Chance said.
Of course I invented all the older quotes for entertainment's sake, but I think you get the drift.
