Cubs Swept in NLDS... Again

97 wins flushed down the drain in 3 games. It was uninspiring. It was pathetic. You name it. Bitter pill to swallow.

End of rant.

But speaking of the Dodgers and the NLDS, it wasn't that long ago when we witnessed Shawn Green hit 3 HRs (in 16 ABs) in a series against the Cardinals. Four years ago to be exact. Green only made the postseason twice in his career, but he certainly made the most of his time in the playoffs. In 13 games and 48 ABs, Green hit .292 with a .542 SLG, had 3 HRs, 3 doubles, scored 6 runs, and drove in 7. And if the Mets hadn't crumbled so badly last season, we would've seen Green one last time in October.

'Course, you never know, he could still come back... One thing's for sure: he can have Fukodome's job in right. I'd be all for that.

Got to love Shawn Green. What a slugger.
