victor actually looked fine batting even when hurt. he'll get treatment and just DH if needed. Leyland will do the old school thing and play victor for game 4 and then sit him game 5 (let verlander do his thing in game 5, then victor will come back if needed).
with Theo leaving boston the newspapers just did the typical exit smear piece on Francona and Theo, and blame the players as well. Its sad to see that kind of thing happen, but in all honesty those newspaper smear pieces come out of chicago yearly (obviously since the cubs are still in that horrific WS drought).
Deadspin reported that Francona did an excellent job in the TV booth (i didn't hear him because I watched the games on mute and totally forgot that I wanted to hear francona).
How did francona do? What are your opinions? damn I honestly didn't catch 30sec of him speaking.
I'm rooting for Theo to actually win a WS for the Cubs but it might take 3-5years unless they drastically increase payroll (for minor league signings, international signings, and preemptive blue chip prospect long term lock ups - a-la pedroia/evan longoria/braun).
