Those lines seem that much more ironic since he's related to a pitcher.

Unless I'm reading a tweet wrong the rotation will go Lester, Arietta, Lackey, Anderson, Hendricks.

Not that it matters much, but kind of weird to line up the ERA winner and 3rd place Cy Young voter as your 5th starter.

The logic I heard is they really wanted Lackey to pitch in the Cardinals series and they wanted to split up the lefties.

What bothers me more is Montgomery not getting starts from the get go.

Obviously they want to get Anderson some starts in while he's healthy and then flip him to a contender during the season.

I didn't cry when we won (I was too exhausted and emotionally spent) but I just cried watching that video. Damn

This video continues to be the reason why I will forever be changed as a sports fan.

The Cubs won't be WS champs every season. But to get to experience even one, and to always have this video to watch............finally. It's all good.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.
