Thanks Theo for Eloy.  Hope you enjoyed Q tonight.  I know Loveland did.

Before last night Q had been pitching verywell. No matter what he does for the Cubs I am happy with the trade. I know Eloy hasn't proven anything yet but I would be very surprised if he were a complete bust. He's looking like a hitting monster so far and if that does translate to what we think he could be in MLB, I would not regret this trade one minute. The Sox need some serious thunder in the lineup and Jimenez looks like he will provide it.

I sure wished that tonight's Q pitched this way against the Nats last week :ok

Dusty wishes too as he'd probably still have a job:

Dusty Baker won't return as Nats manager after another playoff disappointment

    On October 20 in Baseball History...

    1910 - Philadelphia's Jack Coombs, on one day of rest, had a complete game victory to beat the Chicago Cubs 12-5 and give the Athletics a 3-0 lead in the World Series. Coombs also had three hits and drove in three runs in the game.

    1931 - Mickey Mantle, the 'Commerce Comet' is born in Spavinaw, Oklahoma. The newborn's dad names his son after Mickey Cochrane not realizing the major leaguer catcher's real name is not Mickey but Gordon. The future Yankee outfielder is glad his father was not aware of this fact.

    1931 - Frankie Frisch‚ known as the Fordham Flash, is selected as the National League's Most Valuable Player. The Cardinals' second baseman ( .311, 4, 82) is the on-field leader of the World Champion Redbirds.

    1935 - Hank Greenberg is named AL MVP by the Baseball Writers. Wes Ferrell is runner-up.

    1936 - Carl Hubbell (26-6) edges out Dizzy Dean (24-13) for MVP honors in the NL.

    1960 - Coach Ralph Houk, 41, is named to succeed Casey Stengel as manager of the Yankees. He briefly led the Yankees in 1960 when Stengel was hospitalized.

    1964 - Johnny Keane, three days after resigning as manager of the World Champion Cardinals, replaces Yogi Berra as the Yankees' field boss.

    1964 - Red Schoendienst, a popular former player, is named as the Cardinals new manager replacing Johnny Keane, who resigned the day following the team's Game 7 Fall Classic victory over New York. Albert will compile a 1,041-955 record for the Redbirds during 12 full seasons and two stints in 1980 and 1990 as interim skipper, capturing a World Championship in 1967 and a NL pennant in 1968.

    1967 - Charlie Finley names Bob Kennedy the first manager of the Oakland A's.

    1972 - In the fifth game of the World Series, Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds homered on the first pitch of the game from Oakland's Catfish Hunter, and the Reds went on to win 5-4.

    1973 - Reggie Jackson of Oakland had RBI doubles in the first and third innings to lead the A's to a 3-1 victory over the New York Mets and set up a seventh game in the World Series.

    1982 - The Brewers, playing in their first World Series, are unable to hold on to a 3-1 lead in Game 7, when the Cardinals, thanks to Keith Hernandez's two-run sixth inning single, beats Milwaukee, 6-3. It’s the Redbirds' first world championship since 1967.

    1985 - After giving up just two hits in eight innings, Royals southpaw Charlie Leibrandt is raked with three two-out hits and loses 4-2. St. Louis has a 2-0 Series lead.

    1987 - Twins right-hander starter Les Straker becomes the first Venezuelan to pitch in the World Series. At Busch Stadium, the Ciudad Bolivar native blanks the Cardinals for six innings on four hits before being removed for a pinch hitter. The Cards get all their runs against the Twins in the seventh inning to win Game Three 3-1.

    1988 - Orel Hershiser pitched a four-hitter and Mickey Hatcher and Mike Davis hit two-run homers to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics and the World Series title in five games. Hershiser became only the third player to win the MVP in both the playoffs and the World Series.

    1990 - The Reds complete their four-game World Series sweep over the heavily favored A's. Jose Rijo, with ninth inning help from Randy Myers, wins his second game of the series.

    1993 - Devon White's two-run triple capped a six-run eighth inning as the Toronto Blue Jays rallied for a 15-14 victory over the Phillies and a 3-1 World Series lead. The 29 runs shattered the Series record of 22 set in Game 2 in 1936, when the Yankees beat the New York Giants 18-4. It was also the longest nine-inning game in series history - 4 hours, 14 minutes.

    1993 - Calling balls and strikes during Game 4 at Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium, Charlie Williams becomes the first black umpire to work home plate during a World Series.

    1994 - Receiving all 28 first place votes, Raul Mondesi (.306, 16, 56) is named the National League's Rookie of the Year. The Los Angeles rightfielder, who easily outdistanced Astros' hurler John Hudek and Braves' outfielder Ryan Klesko, is the third consecutive Dodger to win the award.

    1996 - Andruw Jones becomes the fourth rookie in baseball history to hit two home runs in the same World Series game when he goes deep twice in Game 1 at Yankee Stadium. The Braves' center fielder joins Charlie Keller (1939 - Yankees), Tony Kubek (1957 - Yankees) and Willie McGee (1982 - Cardinals) in accomplishing the feat.

    2000 - The major league play-by-play broadcasters and color commentators select Carlos Delgado and Todd Helton as the recipients of the Hank Aaron Award. The honor, established last year, recognizes the Blue Jay and Rockies first basemen as the best overall hitters in each league.

    2000 - Toronto signs Carlos Delgado to a record four-year $68 million contract. The Blue Jay first baseman's average salary of $17 million is the richest in major league history.

    2002 - Twenty-year old Venezuelan right hander Francisco Rodriguez becomes the youngest pitcher ever to win a World Series game. With just 15 days of major league experience, K-Rod throws 37 pitches retiring nine consecutive batters in three innings to pick up the victory when the Angels outslug the Giants in Game 2 of the Fall Classic, 11-10.

    2004 - After losing the first three games of the ALCS, the Red Sox win four consecutive games to win the American League pennant beating the Yankees in the Bronx, 10-3. Johnny Damon’s two home runs, including a grand slam in the fourth, and Derek Lowe’s solid pitching performance help Boston to join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York Islanders as the only teams in the history of professional sports to overcome a 3-0 series deficit to win a seven-game series.

    2008 - The Cubs and Jim Hendry agreed to a four-year contract extension season. The deal, which will expire in 2012 and extend into the tenure of the club's new ownership, is the general manager's reward for the team's best regular season showing in more than sixty years en route to its second consecutive National League Central title.

    2008 - Two storied franchises, the NFL Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankees, form a partnership which will handle concession and merchandise sales at the clubs’ new stadiums. The company, known as Legends Hospitality Management, LLC, and founded in cooperation with Goldman Sachs and CIC Partners, envisions expanding its services to other other professional franchises and college programs.

    2009 - The Brewers hire Rick Peterson as their pitching coach to improve the club's woeful starting pitching which posted a 5.37 ERA last season. The 54-year old pitching guru, known for his focus on motion analysis, is reunited with bench coach Willie Randolph and skipper Ken Macha, who were his former managers with the Mets and the A's, teams he toiled for in a similar role.

    2010 - Ted Lilly signs a three-year, $33 million deal to remain with the Dodgers. The 34-year old southpaw, obtained from the Cubs in early August, compiled a 7-4 record with a 3.52 ERA in 12 starts for LA, including victories in the first five starts for his new team.

    2012 - The Red Sox select John Farrell as their new manager to replace Bobby Valentine, who was fired a day after the season ended after piloting the club to a last-place finish in his only year in the Boston dugout. The team's new skipper, who spent the previous two seasons managing the Blue Jays, is obtained from Toronto by sending infielder Mike Aviles north of the border as compensation for the opportunity to hire their former pitching coach.

    2012 - After agreeing to pay $8 million of the remaining $21 million they owe to Heath Bell, the Marlins deal their disappointing closer to the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade in which Miami obtains 22 year-old minor league shortstop Yordy Cabrera, acquired by Arizona along with Cliff Pennington from the A's for outfielder Chris Young. The 35 year-old right-handed reliever is expected to setup closer J. J. Putz, who earlier in the day had his $6.5 million option picked-up by the D-Backs.
