CHICAGO–Lou Piniella added three more coaches to his staff Friday, naming Mike Quade as third base coach, Matt Sinatro as first base coach, and Lester Strode as bullpen coach.
“FLP!” hit the streets to gauge the reaction of Cubs fans to the announcement, with apologies to The Onion.
Ann Helter, Town Crier
“If we keep spending money on coaches all willy-nilly like this, how are we going to get Neifi to come back?”
Bill Murray, Alleged Celebrity Fan
“Lester Strode? He is a madman! When he stole that cow, and his friend tried to make it with the cow. I want to party with that cowboy. If the two of us together, forget it.”
Ted Kopski, Computer Analyst
“So, they got the guy from Total Recall, a singer, and the slang term for the space between your nuts and your @$$hole to coach this team? That is so Cub.”
