Wound, meet salt

"That's probably the most fun I've ever had playing baseball, that series. That series was even better than the World Series. I know the fans here don't like to hear that, but it was fun for us on that side of the field."

That was the just-traded Derrek Lee talking about the Marlins coming back to beat the Cubs in the 2003 NLCS.

Which, by the way, goes down as the single most memorable sporting event I covered during my 16 years in Chicago.

  1. tmad here. After declining the previous trade attempt, DLee must have gotten a call from Mark Grace. Another Class Act, Gracie, dissed by the lovable losers, followed his dreams to Arizona and a World Series Championship. Good luck, DLee, except against Thome and the Twins, if it comes to that.
