Rockies Cubs NL Wild Card Game free live stream, watch

Cubs catcher Willson Contreras

Maddon originally signed a five-year deal in November 2014 that's worth up to $28 million, per reports.

Those types of accomplishments carry less weight around the game than they used to, as evidenced by the Yankees and Nationals parting ways with Joe Girardi and Dusty Baker, respectively, after trips to the playoffs last season. They should've been completely gassed, and the Cubs should've had every advantage. That's good for second most in the Major League Baseball, next to the 115-loss Baltimore Orioles.

Butera came on as part of a double switch in the seventh inning and soon after was called for a rare catcher's interference with two outs. Cubs manager Joe Maddon made a decision to pinch-hit Jason Heyward over slugger Kyle Schwarber. Gore, Baez and Albert Almora Jr. then struck out, bringing a marathon game and a hard season to a fitting end. This was the team that tied for the most wins in the National League.

He was charged with one run on four hits in six innings.

"You're always wondering, 'How's this going to end?' But our guys fought all night and to be able to get that last out there was great", Oberg said.

The Cubs' early exit clearly was a disappointment for everybody within the organization as well as the fanbase and changes will likely come this winter. Hitting coach Chili Davis will likely be the scapegoat for this bad offensive performance, and it's clear that whatever approach he tried to apply this year failed miserably.

The Cubs had a long line of injuries and didn't get the contributions they expected from some key players, including Yu Darvish and Kris Bryant. The win gave the Brewers home field advantage.

Of course it wasn't, and wild was only the tip of the iceberg of adjectives one could use to describe the Rockies' 2-1 win that spanned two days and almost five hours (an actual historically long postseason contest) and shaved unknowable years off all of our lives. There's no way to sugarcoat it, this season was an abject failure.
