Manager rips Cubs' Castro after latest gaffe

For the second consecutive season, shortstop Starlin Castro is in hot water with his manager. Last year, Mike Quade needed to give Castro a "mental break" for inattentive play. After Monday's 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants, manager Dale Sveum was fuming about a lapse by Castro at the second-base bag. With one out and the bases loaded in the fifth inning, the...

A rookie manager and the media

This morning, I read an article in the Chicago Sun-Times that quoted deposed Cubs skipper Mike Quade on the major challenge in his former job. Despite having managed 17 years in the minors, he was still not completely prepared for one element of his Major League assignment – dealing with the media multiple times each and every day all season long. You can read the details, but...

Ya Can't Fix Stupid

As the enemy begins yet another chapter in its century-long battle against awful, I can't help but reflect on the one-and-done tenure of Mr. Mike Quade. I will not question the hearty baseball acumen of the man; he's been around this long, so he must know something. But a leader of men he is not. For me, his ascendancy of idiocy became relevant when his unruly, wild and...
