I figure there are a number of you who have this same "my dad was a Cub fan, taught me everything I know..." story. One day, probably still a long time from now, we'll be able to write a different joke without the sarcasm.
Okay, probably a long, looooong time from now.

disagreement on the way to handle things and that a better manager was needed for the next step. The number of meaningless wins is an irrelevant point. They hired someone and it wasn't quite what they were expecting or what they think they need going forward.
Javy seems to be getting progressively more clueless at the plate -- struck out on an 0-2 pitch in his eyes. HIs baseball IQ is a concern -- if you swing at the first 2 pitches that are not in the strike zone, it is very, very unlikely that the 0-2 pitch will be a strike. Pitchers seem be be almost laughing at him now -- they throw pitches nowhere near the zone on 0-2, and yet he still swings.
This can't be helping his development...time to sit for a bit.
