Today, Thursday, I went to the game with my Chicago friends who were delighted with their cubbies. And well they should be because the outcome was a total Cub victory in 4 games.
The Cubs have a very good team and and excellent manager who gets the most out of his players and relies on conventional baseball strategy to win.
Conventional baseball strategy includes a bunt, a stolen base, a hit and run and a pinch hitter.
The Brewers have a young and talented team and a manager who relies on his players to play sandlot baseball and does nothing to help them score runs. Teams need to score runs and the home run is not always the answer.
The game started with a no brainer bunt situation for the Brewers but instead the manager called on a weak batter to hit away.
The result was a lost opportunity to take an early lead.
This kind of decision has been the hallmark of the Brewer manager all season.
He is afraid to make a decision and is reluctant to replace a player so he doesn't hurt his feelings.
Brewer management has to decide on having a leader or a friendly guy to manage our team to a championship.
Enough said, now lets play ball.
