(dying laughing) at the Oakland Athletics twitter account for posting this video last night.

The Cubs are in the NLCS. They defeated the Cardinals. When it mattered. This is not a drill.
We sing the praises of Thoyer and Joe, but we too often overlook the fact that Tom Ricketts and family have kicked ass as owners–none of this happens without them.
Nothing like easing Justin Grimm into low-leverage, low-pressure, bases-empty situations.
It's going to be a long time before any Cubs roster lacks postseason experience.
Top 5 moments of the game:
5. Jason Hammel's single.
4. Kyle Schwarber hulk smash.
3. Javy Baez opposite-field FU.
2. John Lackey going batshit as he left the mound.
1. A to the Rizzo.
I'm not sure I used the right animal excrement to describe Lackey's tantrum. Ape, maybe?
The postseason might be a crapshoot, but the Cubs, like so many rigged dice, are loaded.
"Go Cubs Go" was loud last night, even if you lived a mile away from Wrigley.
The Cubs problem of having too many middle infielders continues to plague them.
This is a great time to watch baseball with kids. It's outstanding baseball and insanely fun.
I was okay with the Cubs wildcard situation, but it's complete bullshit that they're guaranteed to be the lowest seed throughout the postseason, despite the fact they've won at least five games more than everyone left in the NL.
Kris Bryant is a fanboy.
Any time Miguel Montero would like to make contact would be fine by me.
Pat Hughes is the best.
Ron Coomer is a lot better when he doesn't have to do an inning of play by play.
Joe Maddon has helped create a more relaxed environment in the clubhouse and my living room. Seriously, he's that good.
Cubs in four. Whomever they play.
