The Cubs ARE Cursed

Apparently Lou Piniella has been possessed by whatever demon has cursed the Cubs.  Why else would he choose to start the faltering Jim Edmonds in BOTH of the first two games of the NLDS against the Dodgers?  To prove that he is a great season manager, but is NOT a great playoff manager?

Had he started Reed Johnson, the team would have had more spark and this would be a different series.  Nothing against Jim Edmonds, he helped the Cubs out alot during the season, but he was the wrong choice.  Rather Lou should have started DeRosa in Right Field, injury or no, Fontenot at second, who has been hot at the plate the last few weeks, sit Fukudome, and start Reed Johnson in Center.  The Cubs would be up 2-0 instead of down 0-2.
