I'm probably a bit naive when it comes to possible "fixes". I try not to believe in them. But after watching that race, and hearing that "Big Brown" passed physicals both after the race and the next morning, it really leaves you wondering.
The Cubs are overall a much better team than the Dodgers right now. But the games are played on the field, and I am surprised a bit that the Cubs only managed a split of their four games out here.
They may not be the "Devil" Rays any more, but Tampa Bay's surprising young team sure came out to the Big A with bats at the ready, 13-4 in the series opener. Ouch. I do root for the Rays when they are not playing the Angels, though. Their manager, Joe Maddon, was Mike Sciosia's bench coach for years in Anaheim, and it's nice to see guys like that do well.
