Lather, rinse, repeat: "This might not be the end of the world, but Cubs fans can see it from here. The Cubs spent six months working and hitting and pitching and fielding and sweating to get home-field advantage in the playoffs, and they gave it away in five innings. They might've given this series away, too, because losing the first game at home in a five-game series is exponentially more disastrous than doing it in a seven-game series." [RosenBlog]
