Florida wins 9-8 in 11 after the Cubs gag the game away repeatedly. Having seen the real Cubs return to us all let me be the first to predict Marlins in 5. You can't win with just 2 pitchers, and when the rest of the staff consists of crap heaps like Zambrano, Borowski, and Guthrie, you ain't going to the World Series. Tomorrow night Prior loses 3-1.

It depends on what 2: Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain for example.
I know the Cubs blew the game, but give the Marlins credit too - they had timely pitching and hitting, and took advantage of just enough Cubs mistakes. The 5-run 3rd inning showed we weren't going to go away; Pudge and Mike Lowell (game-winning pinch hit HR in the 11th) came up HUGE.
Yo, it's me, it's me, it's (points to self) P-A-B!
Originally posted by calvinh0560I don't know what to think about this series. The Marlins tried their hardest to lose this game too. As any Boston fan can tell you its never an easy 9th with you have Urbina pitching.
That looked like the Ugie from Game 2 of the day night doubleheader against Tampa last July on the night Ned Martin died. Nice to see the real Ugie has returned.
Where's the spaceship? The Mayor promised a spaceship if we beat the A's, and I want my spaceship.

Come on....I don't think any team wants the Black Sox curse on them (the one curse I DO believe in).
"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997
I agree with you, to an extent, pieman. But my point (in that whole rambling mess) was that the players wouldn't get the opportunity to perform if their manager never put them in the game to begin with.
