Although yesterday's game against the Brewers for the NL East title was technically not a playoff game, the Cubs essentially lost 2 consecutive postseason games against 2 different teams ........ I believe that that is the first time in modern baseball history (1901 - Present) that that has happened.

In fairness, it was literally impossible for that to happen for most of that time.

Another anomaly from the Cubs.  I heard that Terrance Gore, in his major league career (regular season) has more stolen bases than official at-bats.  Another Herb Washington 😀

Yes, that's why I pointed it out.

It's still extremely difficult for that to happen ........ for starters, a team needs to be in the precise position that the Cubs were in for it to occur. If their one-game playoff would have been for a Wildcard spot instead of the division title, it would not be possible for it to happen.

My point was that it was only possible to happen in the years with a one-game wild card playoff game, or since 2012.  The years 1901 thru 2011 were irrelevant, since it was impossible in those years.  In other words, we really can't say that it is all that much of an oddity even though it is the first time it ever happened, as there have only been six seasons in which it could possibly have happened.

I know what your point was, and I agreed with it.

I find it interesting because something like that could not happen for more than 100 years, and now it can (and finally has) happened.

Kris Bryant turned down an offer of apparently 200+M, though the years were not mentioned.

You probably dodged a bullet there.

Ok then! Enjoy him. 

I'm just curious to why you don't think it will work out. Obviously this year wasn't great as his shoulder injury held him back a great deal, but he still put up 2.3fWAR after 3 years of 6.1, 7.9 and 6.7.

Like I said. You have him while you have him. Maybe he'll bounce back fine.
