Its things like this that remind me that the Cubs will never win a World Series. I couldn't see 1 of those 4 happening to the lovable losers, let alone all 4.

Theo has a lot of culture to change in that clubhouse.

Also, congrats to LaRussa for going out on top. I don't like the guy (think he overmanages every possible chance he gets), but I can't argue with his successes.

Don't be surprised if TLR is 'retiring' right before being offered a managerial position with the lovable losers... heh.

Theo loves stats and signs players based purely on computer rankings.
TLR hits and runs (twice!) with the best hitter on the planet at the plate. And bats his pitcher 8th.

These two statements don't exactly jive.
