Anyone have any idea what their record is since Lou quit? Seems like they are winning quite a few games lately and since I have a bet with a Cub fan based on total wins vs. the Sox total wins, this is not good.

The pressure is off the Cubs, so they will perform.

Its not good in my favor. There is a guy I work with who I make Sox/Cub bets with. 2 weeks ago had me $78 ahead of him but now it is $60.

I wonder if there are statistics about how often a team goes on a roll when they get a new manager. It happened to the O's this year and I want to say KC too.

This isn't a knock on Piniella at all. I'm just curious as to why some teams seem to find new life under a new manager....when it isn't always simply replacing a bad manager.

The pressure is off the White Sox at this point and they have completely given up.

I remember Hawk saying when the O's hired Showalter that you never want to play a team that just got into a brawl or just got a new manager. A week later we played Baltimore and proceeded to lose three of four against them. I'm not saying it's that way with every team, but I guess it's not unheard of to play better with a new manager coming in.

This phenomenon is around in soccer, as well. Usually called the "new manager shine" or "new manager bump".

What are the grounds for the bet? $x per game ahead or just finishing with a better record? Regardless, relax! We have 11 more wins than the Cubs!

2 dollars per win, so I'm up 22.00 but it keeps shrinking.

It'll be interesting to see what they do now that they aren't in contention. 8 game losing streak so far. Little Nell might be just getting a Happy Meal out of this. :D:

Happy meal sounds good right now, these guys might not win another game.
