Man, I loved the concept of having Chili Davis as a coach because his name is Chili horsefeathering Davis. What a disaster.

Hope he finds a good gig, but he clearly wasn't a good fit for us.

He seemed like a decent dude but think his way of thinking is too outdated to be 100% the way to go. I think his theory can fit a smaller role within an org but it shouldn’t be the prevailing theory. Hopefully he finds work somewhere.

Hinske is probably available. Wonder if they just give him a call.

Also is Manny still playing pro ball somewhere?

I legit almost made a post after all of those Len tweets today asking if it was a bad sign that Chili hadn't been axed yet. Maybe Theo's season ending bender just ended today.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I think this was one of the saddest moments of the show honestly. Chili Davis being fired is not sad

Find a guy whose philosophy works with the roster. Chiliball might work for a lighter hitting team, but certainly not with the Cubs.

Dusty Baker is available. He can be the replacement manager should Maddon fail is just an added bonus.
