Hey, not that is sucks completely to be a Mariner in Seattle.
But if you're Mike Montgomery and you're doing okay on a totally middle of the pack team on the rainy coast of America and you get a call from your manager saying hey Mike, pack your bags you're going to the Cubs?
Well, life just changed somewhat, didn't it?
Because Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer think you might be able to not only help this year's amazing cause, but become a long term and valuable piece here in Chicago.
And when those guys think that of someone, that someone becomes a very special person.
Mike Montgomery, COME ON DOWN!
Welcome to the land of fat pizza and Old Style, my friend.
Here's your copy of The Cubs Way, please memorize the part about being a nice guy and here... meet Chris Bosio.
You got any mechanical problems?
Well, he'll be the judge of that.
And I suggest you pay attention, understand?
Okay, here's your locker.
Mike, your mouth's hanging open.
Yes, this room is kind of envy of ohhh... every player in the land.
And yeah, Joe's got a special suit for you to wear this weekend.
The bag of pistachios?
I'm not sure why, but I think you're supposed to throw some shells on the field or something.
Not to worry, Mr. Rizzo will let you know.
But here's the most important thing.
Do not go out on the field and take a dump.
This is serious business in... yeah I know it used to be a joke but no. Not any more.
You're a Cub, buddy.
The new kind.
