Cubs and their superstitions
A quick thought on Parshat Vayeira and the Cubs Managerial search.
Vayeira has a lot of meat to it, but the opening story is that of 3 men visiting Abraham and Sarah to share the news that Sarah will have a child in the coming year. The Talmud identifies these three “Angels” as Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael.
These three angels are like 3 coaching candidates vying for the open Cubs managerial job. The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham (coincidence?) reports that the Cubs will be interviewing Pete Mackanin, Dale Sveum, and have interest in Mike Maddux. Thats Michael Maddux, the only match of the three “visitors” and the only one who coaches in the same division/league as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Just saying….
