First call: Joe Maddon’s Cubs got eliminated in the wild-card game. Sad yet?

October 3, 2018

In “First Call” Wednesday, the Cubs season ends in a wild-card loss to the Rockies. LeBron James makes his debut. Earl Thomas gets fined. But not for what you would expect.

Hey Chicago, what do you say?

The team whose manager invented baseball won’t be playing it the rest of October.

The Cubs lost to the Brewers in their NL Central tie-breaking game Monday. Then they lost last night to the Rockies in the wild-card game Tuesday night.

I’m sure Pirates fans are really upset about this development.

Colorado advanced to the National League divisional round with a 2-1 win in 13 innings. Tony Wolters had the game-winning RBI at Wrigley Field.
