After a heartbreaking loss, it’s best to take a giant step back. It’s best to look at a failure against the backdrop of the season as a whole. The first conclusion I reached was, “At least we aren’t Washington Nationals fans”.

Jokes and second-guesses aside, this season provided plenty of entertainment. The longer I watch baseball, the more I realize the greatest moments of the season are not ruined by the way in which that season dies. Baseball is so human sometimes it is scary. We don’t remember a person for how they passed away. We remember their life.
