Quade had light years more managing experience than Sveum who didn’t manage in minors and only a few games in 2008 for Brewers — also Sveum was not that much of a major leaguer having played for half dozen teams over a few years batting .230 or so and coached awhile for Brewers and Red Sox — this explains why he’s not making right moves as lacks experience

Moving around deck chairs on a sinking ship useless unless first throw captain overboard and bring in somebody who knows how to handle players— Sveum shown enough to conclude he’s a bullpen coach at best

Cubs should listen to Pinella and ban weights throughout organization and any off season play so players can avoid injury

That’s right, Patches – all it takes is a splash of horse lineament on whatever ails ya. They just need to take the trolley over to the Nickle-n-Dime and grab a bottle.

Nicely played Drew

Not a priority yet? Quade for all his faults did try to tough love this kid but the FO sided with the kid which sends the wrong message and didn’t do him any favors

Lovely

For you long timers you may recall I argued why Intl draft won’t happen due to push back by other countries who either want to form rival major league so as to keep their home grown talent home OR would demand an extortion like fee that MLB would walk away rather than pay– and finally these other countries woke up to realization that leverage is a wonderful thing— good for them– but will get ugly like gangland turf wars

Stats schmats — show me Bellyfire and I will see a winner – Castro does not have it yet and may never– he’s gliding thru the game in a trance — Quade tried to wake him up but was fired over it

Hope this doesn’t mean Cubs won’t install Jumbotron!– what better way to keep track of all suspended players between innings — as public service announcement to kids to just say no to drugs while half the fans in the stands are legally drunk

 

 

 

Classic.
