Well-stated analysis of our heroes' fall by Chris Jaffe at The Hardball Times, from which the above headline was lifted.

Here's the moral of his story:

...how can you have any faith in this bunch in the postseason? They've had two consecutive Octobers when they wet their pants every time they stood on the field. The onus is on them to prove they have the mental fortitude to make their physical gifts worth a damn.
By the way, I expect to get back to more of my regular writing schedule this week. After watching the Bears wither yesterday afternoon, I have concluded that I will find no salvation in following any other Chicago sports team. Therefore, I might as well come to grips with my Cubs grief and get back to work.
