I don't keep up with Cubs blogs, so...

... can someone tell me if they've been pointing out the colossally poor choice to only let Rich Harden pitch once in this series? How in the world did Piniella decide to save him for game three? I'll give some props to the (redacted)dumpster on his great season as a starter, but it certainly didn't qualify him as a better pitcher to win a single game than Rich Harden. As a quasi-Dodgers fan at this point, I have to say that I am more angry at Lou Piniella for making such a bad decision than I am happy that the Dodgers have benefited.

I've been having a World Series daydream since Longoria's second HR today. It's Game 7, and Billingsley and Edwin Jackson pitched seven scoreless frames each before giving way to the bullpen. Loney hits a solo home run in the top of the 9th. In the bottom of the 9th, Saito yields a lead-off walk followed by a Willy Aybar double that doesn't score the runner from first. Saito gets a pair of strikeouts sandwiched around a walk. Dioner Navarro comes to the plate, trailing 1-0, 2 outs, B9, game 7. Let's see what happens
