10 years after the Bartman Game, Dusty is still to blame – SB Nation

  • Are Cubs Fans Still Mad About Steve Bartman? Because it totally was his fault that the Cubs totally surrendered and allowed eight runs.
    Of course you wouldn’t, your curse is broken 8 years ago.

    What a shame, Chicago suffered from two baseball curses for about 60 years.
    Harry, you couldn’t recognize the irony if it would slap you right in your face. Now look into the future and tell me that the Red Sox will win 20 rings from now on until 2033

      “Because it totally was his fault that the Cubs totally surrendered and allowed eight runs.” How sad you believe and spew that line.

      Besides Bartman, there were 39,576 other paid admissions to that game. It was easy to find an uninvolved scapegoat to justify why the Cubs gave up 8 runs to the Marlins in the 8th inning.

      Read the updated reports on the non-fan interference foul ball that Alou admitted he couldn’t have caught yet over-reacted to in the heat of the moment. If Robin had been where Bartman was, there would still be stupid questions today about the faults of Robin.

      Add: I see no irony in whatever you’re trying to say. It’s only ironic you weren’t sitting in Bartman’s seat because I can predict you would have done exactly the same thing he did.

    So Did You Know This About You Cubbies? Did you know that the Chicago Blackhawks are in fact the Chicago Cubs, despised as hockey players? Finally, a team that Chicago can root for! However, this doesn’t solve your baseball problems. Maybe your boys should quit hittin’ the ice so much and get back to the diamond.

    BQ to Chitown fans- does having an extremely successful hockey team wash away the 105 years of heartbreak?

    BQQ- When Chicago blows it to Boston in the Stanley Cup, will Steve Bartman be blamed?
    *Your Cubbies. Please excuse my typo in the title.
    Robin- If this is indeed true, then maybe they need to be considered…
    Excuse my intelligence level, I did indeed mean “disguised” as players.
    Nick- the difference between the Hawks and the Cubs is the fact that the Hawks can actually win a game.

    • Curator says:

      No. But did you know that the Blackhawks have played a game in Wrigley Field and were neither despised or disguised as hockey players? Cubs have never played a game in the United Center or even the old Chicago Stadium.

      BQ – No. Chicago has had many extremely successful teams besides the Blackhawks > Bulls, Bears, White Sox

      BQQ- No. Steve Bartman was wrongly blamed when Cubs were in NLCS – not World Series.

    • Curator says:

      I hope so because the reality is, alou was not going to make that catch anyway, the infield error after was worse than what Batman did, plus everybody tends to treat this as a game 7 when it was a game 6. Cubs came out with another chance to close it out but lost. Bartman didn’t cause that series loss, the cubs choked and fans have used this as an excuse and bartman as a scapegoat. Everybody who had said anything to that man, and made his life so much harder, owes him a sincere apology

  • Ron says:

    Do You Blame Steve Bartman For The Cubs Not Winning The 2003 Nlcs? I don’t blame him the marlins were better than the cubs and there were at least five fans reaching out to grab the ball. I mean anyone would have gone for that ball alou wouldn’t have even caught it plus Alex Gonzalez botched the ball that would’ve been an inning ending double-play plus Dusty Baker would get of his ass to get prior out of there
    @ Zach there is no reason to blame Steve bartman

  • Betty says:

    What Baseball Game Was This? I know there was a baseball game when there was something very controversial something involving a fan grabbing a ball out of a players hand that could have been an out. then i guess if i’ve got this right, that could have ended the inning, but since he didn’t cantch it because of the fan it let the inning go on and they gave up a bunch of runs and lost when they could have won if they just caught that ball. i think it goes something like that. if you know what i’m talking about can you tell me who was this and when. and if i’ve got it right. like the details…

    • Curator says:

      You may be talking about game 6 of the NLDS between the Marlins and the Cubs when Steve Bartman interferred with Moises Alou’s play in the left field seats. Alou looked like he had a beat on the ball, but Bartman stuck out his hand and knocked it free. The Cubs were leading 3-0 at the time. THe Marlins would go on to score 8 times in the inning and eventually won the decisive game 7.

      I provided a wiki link below.

      @James, How does two NL team play in the world series? :P
