I've seen worse in Parnell park. Not condoning what went on but the media concentration on it has largely made it a much much bigger deal. The ESPN story (as is their MO , the utter bastards) ensures his name lives on in history, the name is linked to cubs failure and had they continues to lose in big games the legend would grow, but like Bill Buckner was a handy piñata for Red Sox fans thankfully Bartman's instinctive catch becomes a fading memory. He doesn't go to watch baseball games anymore. Keeps himself to himself and today he's incredibly happy I bet.
As for the Cubs. they've the best GM in baseball. Arguably the best manager in the game. Two ace's in Lester and Arrieta. three or four cost controlled talented players and Chapman in the pen.
they may not repeat but I would say theres a couple more series in them.
