Well Mike Quade, it was good knowing you.
199 games as the Cub skipper - you join a fairly lengthy list of guys who didn't quite get in two seasons.
You know which manager lasted the longest since Leo Durocher?
Quade didn't do anything memorable, really.
Like, he didn't cuss out the whole city of Chicago as old Lee Elia did.
10 years from now, Mike is going to be remembered about as much as Jim Essian or Gene Michael.
The goofball moves with a not very good team spells poof.
Nothing will shock me with whatever Theo Epstein and the New Regime does with the team.
Ryne Sandberg getting passed by already?
Yeah, it might have been time to bring him in - I thought that would make alot of sense.
But if Theo wants to go another direction with a guy who's managed in the Bigs, fine with me.
Don't really want to think about if he ends up managing the Cards, but if that happens well there surely will be a post about it.
Anyway see ya Mike.
Who's gonna be the new skip?
Guys, I'm just beginning a bunch of production so the posts might get a little spotty, but I'll try my best to keep up and maybe put up some old favs along the way...
