The Cubs knew that Ricky was not the Mgr to take them to next level, wake up White Sox & do the same. After that ridiculous pitching rotation in a Playoff Elimination Game, he should be driven to the airport. If you had no faith in Dane Dunning why start him? Dylan Cease would have been a better choice.

Couldn't agree more. With a better manager, the Sox are in the ALDS. Unfortunately, Reinsdorf has unbelievable loyalty to his GM's and coaches. Gar/Pax being the prefect example.

i don't think it was not having faith in dunning, moreso it was going to be a bullpen game from the start. yes he pulled dunning in the 1st inning, but i don't think he was going to go more than 2 innings anyways. the sense i got was he wanted a fresh pitcher for each inning instead of relying on one guy to get to x inning then survive the rest of the game. even if cease started, he would have had the same leash.

my issue with his choices were why rodon? he hasn't shown he can be a relief pitcher. especially playing one of the most in tune teams analytically in baseball. the order of pitchers didn't make sense either.

To build such a good solid core of young players, then bring in a fossil.......
