Whoever told you that you are crazy for thinking that is stupid. I knew that it would happen as much as I didn't want it to.
The Cubs were on a terrible streak since clinching and Zambrano and Harden had terrible Septembers (Big Z looked average since his no-no). OUr bats kept coming up short when runners were on base and you just can't expect to win when nothing is going right. If the playoffs started in August, then yeah, you would have been crazy, but they didn't.
Again us Cubs fans are left to speculate about next year.
At least my AL team is still in it. Go Rays. Been a small-time fan of theirs since 2005 when I lived in Orlando.
