ESPN - Astros' Cooper unhappy to play Cubs in Milwaukee - MLB

ESPN - Astros' Cooper unhappy to play Cubs in Milwaukee - MLB: "But with his club chasing the NL wild-card spot, Astros manager Cecil Cooper sure wasn't thrilled with the idea of playing in front of a predominantly pro-Cubs crowd at a supposedly neutral site. And he planned to make his feelings known to commissioner Bud Selig, a close friend.

'It's like a Cub home game,' Cooper said. 'Only they're not the 'home' team, we are. I'm not happy about that. I need to tell the commissioner that. I will tell him that.'"

... The forums are alive with talk of the seemingly unfair decision to have this game played just outside the Cubs' back yard.
