Boy, oh boy
And so it begins for the Cubbies. Are they in for it:

"While managing the Tigers from 2003-2005, Trammell compiled a
186-300 record, including a 43-119 record his first
season."

Piniella hired Trammel as a bench coach.

And retained Rothschild.

*sigh*

Maybe this will be it.

How's that for trying to put a positive spin on things?

the point is that he, of all people in the world could.

I thought the whole point of changes in management were to improve.

5. Silly girl
The point of changes in management is to make fans stockholders think you're doing something.

7. Since last week.
My personal choice would've been Girardi. Or Brenly. Or Alou. I just found out that Ryne Sandburg was interested...he would've been good.

ANYONE but Lou.

Sheeeeeeesh.

And Alan Trammell. And Rothschild.

It's gonna be a looooooong couple of years.
