What a terrific win pulled off by the Pittsburgh Cubs. Come on, Randall Simon-2 run homer, Kenny Lofton-scored winning run, and last but not least, Aramis Ramirez-managed to boot a ball and win the game because of it. It's really sad for me, a lifelong Buccos fan, to see these players playing pivotal roles in a huge series, even though they all were average at best for the Pirates during the regular season. Sigh...rant over.
Edit: Forgot what my sig was.

Bert was one my favorite non-Yanks of all time, and yeah, his curveball friggin ruled. Being great and being a great, as you seemed to be pointing out, are two different things, though the line is a thin one.
