Chicago Cubs

Chicago’s Other Coach Q

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent ISeptember 15, 2010

At 18 games out of first, you take pride in small victories.
Defeating the Cardinals is one of them.
Beating Adam Wainwright is another!

Wainwright entered the game with an MLB-best 1.52 home ERA.
The Cubs tagged him for a career-worst 12 hits,
and scored five runs against him in eight innings.
Wainwright lost for just the third time at home (11-3).

Where were these Cubs the first five months of the season?
And who knew the answer was 90-feet away in the third base coaching box!

Tuesday night is another feather in Mike Quade’s cap.
Cubs have gone 13-7 under ‘Q’, winning five of its last six series.
The skipper’s case for the full time job is growing stronger.

Also to Quade’s benefit, Fredi Gonzalez, once a leading candidate for the position, has declined the Cubs request to interview him.
Gonzalez is unquestionably heading to Atlanta to replace Bobby Cox.
Just another win for Quade.

A few more wins and Quade may have a real chance to catch Ryno in the polls!
