Why didn't somebody tell Joe before the game tonight that the Cubs signed a new manager and he didn't have to try to manage his way out of town. I can't even begin to dissect some of his moves tonight:
1) Starting Cervelli over Jorge at catcher
2) Putting Marcus Thames in RF after the injury to Teix instead of Greg Golson
3) Intentionally walking the Rangers' # 7 hitter, the immortal David Murphy, to put more runners on base in a 1-run game when he had a tiring A.J. out there on the mound.
I just don't have the words...
