This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,
C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.
Whatever the reason, it has nothing to do with The Almighty. Unless the Orioles are involved, He doesn't have a dog in the fight!
The evil Orioles who kept the blessed Tigers from repeating in '69? I think not.However, I think we know when to expect the Second Coming.BTW, Gibby was a Tiger, first and last. That Dodger thing was just a brief interruption.
Yes, and Trammell is on the coaching staff of the Diamondbacks also. As for the Almighty being an Orioles fan, I would have to say that that's the best argument for atheism I've heard in a long time. They haven't done much since Ripken retired.
Banish this blasphemer to the outer darkness! May his name be cut off from the people!!!
As a sabermetrics dork, I would say that it's not likely to be the manager who deserves all the credit. I'll have to find the article, but the stat geeks say that a manager's in-game decisions at best either add or subtract 3 wins per season. Now, of course math can't measure some of the human element of how they manage the players.I would say the Dbacks' success is due to them having a weak schedule, a decent bit of luck, and they made some good moves to shore up their pitching. That, and Justin Upton is a monster.I'm glad they are in the playoffs. I'm a Cardinal fan who is hoping on a wing and a prayer. (Puns!)
