Why was the crowd so dead? It felt so tense, and depressing. Why did Piniella play these games like the regular season???
Every time the Cubs got something going, Torre went out and made a pitching change. Why did Lou stick with Dempster in Game One for so long? Of course game two he would have had to replace his entire infield. Why didn't he play every game like it was do or die? Go to Lilly in the 1st to replace Harden. Who cares about Game Four, it didn't happen. Go to Marmol in the 4th or 5th if you have to. He did something similar last year. Remember when he took Big Z out early even though he was pitching stellar??? Saving him for Game Five, which implies that you for sure won't sweep, and obviously Game Four didn't even happen.
