I guess this Theo Epstein move from Boston to Chicago is a done deal, but it won't happen til Boston owner John Henry and Cubs owner Tom Ricketts agree on Boston's "compensation".
Surely Theo is whispering in Tom's ear.
I mean, Theo's got a concern over what might transpire here, right?
What's Theo whispering?
"McNutt's got a big upside, keep him."
"Brian LaHair's big league performance was a mirage, let him go."
"Why are you trying to offer Trough Technology?"
I have no idea - you fill in the talk bubble.
I love the idea of Brett Jackson, but you know, had Starlin Castro not turned out to be so amazing we'd all be thinking Brett could be Felix Pie, right?
So big deal if he goes.
On the other hand, what if Jackson keeps developing and turns into a legit stud?
It's tough to think about right now, who might go.
And if the Cubs win out, it'll only be cash anyway.
But getting Epstein, that's the true prize here, guys.
Whatever happens, it'll still be good.
So the Brewers beat the Cards in St. Louis so they're even at 2 games, and the Tigers avoid elimination, beating the Rangers in Detroit.
I was too busy to draw anything, but yesterday would have been Regular Fan doing a little dance next to
that pixie Jose Valverde.
SO happy to see him gag up the 4 earned runs and drive his era up to 8 something.
I mean, I like former worthy opponent (as a Pirate) Jimmy Leyland and everything, but Jose ruins the Tigers for me.
