So Long, Joe (G.)

The managerial merry-go-round is spinning at full speed. Already, Frank Robinson, Dusty Baker, and Felipe Alou are out. Now Joe Girardi joins them on the unemployment line, nevermind the surprising success of his young fish this season. Expect to see him back in Wrigley; the Cubs will be all the better for his addition.

  • Good. Loria doesn’t deserve him, and I’ll be thrilled when he wins NL-MOTY while wearing a Cubs cap.

  • But the Cubs don’t deserve him either. Talk about a deep-pocketed organization that couldn’t strategize it’s way out of a paper bag…

  • Good point, SF. I was thinking more for my good friend, a life-long Cubs fan (poor miserable bastard), whose sole purpose for the last two months of the year was to see his team first finish ahead of Pittsburgh (they didn’t) and no more than 30 games under .500 (on the nose).

  • As much as I love the idea of long-suffering Cubs fans getting the monkey off their backs, I loathe the idea that the Tribune Company, which has done almost nothing right by said Cubs fans, reaping the financial rewards of a championship.

  • If you’re Giradi, do you really want to go from a disfunctional organization that is good at constructing teams (if not keeping them) to a disfunctional organization that sucks at building a team?
