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.

Since it's not plausible to fire or demote the 23 players not named Haren or Upton, Bob Melvin fired as manager of the Arizona D(iamond)-Backs (espn.com) This was pretty much inevitable from literally day one where the wheels fell off of Brandon Webb.
