The Cubs named this gentleman, Mike Quade, to be our coach for the next 2-3 seasons. He took over after my beloved Lou Piniella resigned in August and finished the team finished the season strong.
He's not as colorful as Lou. He'll never be the fan favorite that other managerial contender, Ryne Sandberg, is. But he has the support of the players. Plus, he seems very well adjusted and cheerful for a man with no hair. Really. He lost all of his hair when he was in grade school and it's never grown back, not even his eyebrows.
It would be such a Cubbie thing -- if the man who brought us to our first World Series in 100 years had no eyebrows.
