Another year of baseball is gone, goodbye: David Lengel takes a look back at the best, worst and most controversial moments of the 2016 season

It was Game 7 of the World Series, and baseball history was busy pulling the Chicago Cubs back into a boiling cauldron of curses.

On Friday night in Los Angeles, I sat next to my father inside Dodger Stadium.
