Preston Gomez, who managed the Cubs in 1980, died today. This is a little before my time as a Cubs fan, but he was 38-52 at the time he was fired. Joey Amalfitano took over and finished 64-98, for the worst Cubs winning percentage in a non-strike season since 1966. Gomez managed seven seasons, and finished last six of those years. He wasn't in Chicago long, but does anybody remember Gomez, or the 1980 Cubs? I can't figure out how to add a link to a fan post, so a link is listed below, under "Read Related."
