All-Star break is upon us. If the season ended today….

by

…the Cubs would be in the wild-card playoff game.

I know – all too well – that there’s still a lot of baseball to be played. That said, I’m impressed with Joe Maddon so far and want to believe that the Cubs are moving in a positive direction. Your feedback welcomed.

The Chicago Cubs today named Joe Maddon the 54th manager in franchise history, Monday, November 3, 2014. Maddon was introduced at The Cubby Bear sports bar across the street from Wrigley Field in Chicago.   (Brian Cassella/Chicago Tribune)

    At this point in the season, I have only one question:

    Where are all of the dipshit fanboys who were bitching about firing “Ricky” Diarrhea and putting Joe Maddon in his place? The Cubs would be at least 10 games under .500 with “Ricky” as manager. With Maddon, they’re 7 games over. Cased closed.

    Best pick up the Cubs could have made……..maybe ever. I don’t know, that might be debatable, but it warrants discussion, I think.

    Yep.

    Hell, I remember when people were pissed when we let Quade and Sveum go. Some fans just bitch whenever you criticize a team, no matter how obvious of an error it was.

    Maddon was a no-brainer. Epstein has been phenomenal with the farm system and projects like Arrieta. If he keeps his focus on the farm and not overpaying talent via free agency (which he’s always been pretty miss at, even at Boston), then the future looks bright.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
