Yearly Facepalm – 10/16/18

In Facepalm by myles469 Comments

Chili Davis is gone. It appears that like offensive coordinators for the Bears or Defense Against the Dark Arts professors, nobody can last more than a year in this position.

OSS: Cubs clinch playoff spot, hang on to a razor-thin half game lead, cause everyone to tear their hair out. Three up: The bats finally woke up, courtesy of a first inning opposite field home run by Jason Heyward. Despite the first inning home run, Quintana had a solid start.
