We liked Alan Trammell as our bench coach.
It was kind of hard to find a picture of Tram in a Cubs uniform that did him justice (understandable since he was bigger in Detroit) and for some reason a Google image search brought up a scene from Little Shop of Horrors, but the point is that we’ll miss him and we wish him well in Arizona. Say hi to Nady for us.
To replace Tram, the Cubs lured Pat Listach away from the Nationals.
He looks like he can handle the bench. He looks like he can chuck the bench into left field. He looks like a person that players would work really hard to please. And we appreciate that quality in a person.
Anything you need, Mr. Listach, you let us know.
Please don’t crush any of our players.
