So he set up an autograph "booth" ... outside his house: https://t.co/VzbOAaPd4w
"Literally, I promise you, I prayed during free agency last year to be a Chicago Cub."
His Wrigleyville house.
Riding his bike to the ballpark. It's steampunk Ben!
"How 'bout this shit?!"
Verducci: "Cubs president Theo Epstein met with the manager in his office to confer about their pitching. Maddon had already improvised by inserting Jon Lester into the fifth inning in relief of Kyle Hendricks with Cleveland's Carlos Santana at first base and two outs. In a pregame strategy session the last thing Epstein and Maddon agreed upon was that Lester, because of his mental block throwing to bases and his limited history of relief work, would enter a game only at the start of an inning.
"But Maddon abandoned the agreement because he wanted the lefty to face lefthanded-hitting Jason Kipnis."
The wild pitch. (Careful, Grandpa!)
First on the mic.
"This is awesome!"
"That was awesome!"
He was awesome.
Tarnishes his legacy while making history!
Wanted David Ross, studied Cubs culture.
"Look what the boys got me!"
"Dude, you hit a home run off Andrew Miller in Game 7 of the World Series!"
The three-headed catching monster.
