Theo Epstein, the Commissioner, and the World Series
Never thought I'd see a general manager elevated to rock star status.
Or "President of Baseball Operations" or whatever Theo Epstein's new title is with the Chicago Cubs.
Either way, oh MAN!
I could not be more excited, more happy, more re-energized about our favorite team than right now.
Well, a World Series title would be nice.
No pressure there, Theo.
Okay, back to the Series.
Never has Tony LaRussa been so personally on the ropes.
The Hangmen were out in St. Louis just yesterday, and damage control is attempting to fix things, but I don't think they can recover from all the incredible blunders from the other night.
Remember Playoff Lou pulling Zambrano?
That was NOTHIN compared to Tony's 8th Inning of Disaster.
I'm so watching.
I just noticed the Dodger's payroll today. It is just absurd. $300,000,000+!!
Here is where just some of there money is for 2015:
Carl Crawford $20MM
Brandon McCarthy $17MM
Bronson Arroyo $3.5MM
Darwin B $2.2MM
Dan Haren $10MM
Matt Kemp $18MM
Brian Wilson $10MM
Ryan Webb $2.2MM
Dee Gordon $2.5MM
Enjoyable read on David Ross.
Er, they won the first one. My bad. Carry on.
BOB: I doubt very much that Matt Szczur will be on the Cubs LDS roster.
I felt the same way, too, but...
Absolutely-It was tense. And when the Pirates couldn't push any runs across, you could see the frustration boil over.
I meant December.
