Tribune columnist Rick Morissey is a voice of reason the Bartman issue:
The Cubs are in the playoffs for the first time since 2003, when an anger-mismanaged left fielder named Moises Alou, a flustered pitcher named Mark Prior and a jittery shortstop named Alex Gonzalez brought Chicago to its knees in new and acutely painful ways.
But outsiders and dumb locals who should know better will put the blame on Bartman this week when the Cubs start their division series....
It will be lazy, cheap and mean-spirited.
Don't give in to it.
