    Just met @MJAlltheWay24 by chance. Bought a Coke off him before I saw his name tag.

    Does his name tag say MJAlltheWay24?

    Oddly enough, no. He's obviously undercover, going by Parker.

    Best line by a guy selling split the pot tickets..."If the Cubs can win a World Series, you can win a raffle."

    Alcantara got a single. I knew he could make contact.

    You'd think..Peralta was warming up, I don't see why they didn't put him in.

The Cubs are World Champs for a reason. Their lineup is stacked with guys that can produce. The Cubs remind me of the Reds teams of the 70's in that they're never out of any game. You just know they're going to get that big hit or have that big inning late in the game to win it for them.

    I do however agree with ASB in that I thought Price should have left Wandy in for another inning.
    The only problem I have with leaving Lorenzen in was he had clearly shown the Cubs everything he had to throw by then and wasn't going to fool a good hitter. You have to go with other percentages at that point if they are available. Pitching is all about keeping the hitter off balance not about throwing it by him.

    You'd think they've won 20 championships but they were obnoxious before they won their 1st.
