I am absolutely furious and completely embarrassed as a Cubs fan over what just took place this weekend in St. Louis. It was obvious during week one of this season that manager Mike Quade was in over head. The eternal optimists were willing to give him more time. Well... all that time has proved is that he is currently worthy of the title of "Baseball's most incompetent manager."
It's bad enough to visit the mound and tell your pitcher how to pitch to Albert Pujols (The Player of the Decade), with 2 outs and nobody on base in extra inning (even though you shouldn't be pitching to him at all)! It's even worse to sound like a complete fool in the post-game press conferences when getting hammered about the decision, and then go out and do the absolute unthinkable the following day: Allow Pujols to walk-off a second day in a row.
To this Cubs fan... this moment... this weekend... is the single most embarrassing moment in Cubs history of the last 20 years.
