I don't like the cubs one bit, but I though that was horrible.
haaaaaa here we go again....Gomer
For the second year in a row D Lee and DeRosa were the only hitters to show up and the starting pitching went to ****. This team is never going to win with Soriano, Ramirez and Soto hitting a combined .139 and .094. If they are going to disappear every post season they might as well trade them. Edmonds sucks. They need a legit CF desperately and hopefully Fukudome recovers from his terrible second half.
The whole series was a huge suck fest for the Cubs. It was embarrassing.
My cousin-in-law is from Chicago and a huge Cubs fan. He has "CUBSWIN" on his license plate. I was watching the game with him on Saturday and he said the "curse" is the stupidest thing he's ever heard. He said until they get players that don't choke and deal with the pressure in the playoffs, they will always lose.
He hates the White Sox. He said they don't matter. Just like the Angels. I told him I agree. F' the Angels!
Add to that the necessity of his kids and then grandkids not doing it first.
Bartman has no hope of great-grandkids.
One constant the Dodgers had this season was pitching, the best in the league. And it was clearly the best between the two teams, too.
I mean...we beat Dempster and Zambrano in Wrigley. Then we beat Harden in Dodger Stadium.
This was no flukey, come from behind squeeker of an upset or anything. This was an absolute dismantling of the other team.
Aside from Daryle Ward (funny), the Cubs were universally bad. Cubs were bad. Dodgers were good. Better team won. "It's not how you start, it's how you finish." etc. etc.
Would a seven game series have been more fair or still no? Because that would just mean the Dodgers would be up 3-0 going into game 4 at Dodger stadium...
