I Thank Joe Torre

Go back in your San Francisco Giants' time machine.
Back to the dreary days of when Orlando Cepeda was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for Ray Sadecki.
Cepeda goes on to win the MVP and the Cardinals win the World Series in 1967.

Then on March 17, 1969, Cepeda was traded to the Atlanta Braves for Joe Torre. Torre, joins the Cardinals and he too gets the "magic" as he wins the 1971 MVP. Torre remembers these days and sees how the Giants got "Ground-screwed" by those buffoons on the Cub payroll. He takes the Giants protest and makes the Cubs have to continue the game in the bottom of the 5th inning, ahead 2-0, Thursday, August 21, 2014 at the friendly confines of Wrigley Field.

Sometimes there is justice.
