I was really torn when the Astros were playing the Yankees. Even with Rizzo there, pulling for the Yankees just seems wrong. But the alternative...!!! I never shared your attitude towards the Astros, but then they cheated, so I leaned a bit in your dirction. Then they hired Dusty.

I'm sure Dusty is a fine individual and he was a good player. But IM(not so)HO, he sucks as a manager. He certainly sucked as the Cubs manager. I think his entire managerial career has depended on only taking jobs where there was lots of talent. So, that series was a lose-lose situation.

But I was pulling for the Phillies!! (As I type they are up 6-5 in the bottom of the 10th!) Schwarber is my favorite ex-Cub. If the Phillies win the Series over the Astros, that will be sweet indeed!

Hi Rich! I can't believe the Phils take game one!
Also... you mean the guy who ran Prior and Wood into the ground wasn't a good manager?
I do have to give him credit, though. Once he became manager, that was the first time I could remember stars from other teams saying, "I'd play for the Cubs now."
