Have you ever played the game “Do, Dump, or Marry?” It’s a game played in public when a friend chooses three random people out of a crowd. The player must pick one person to “do,” one to “dump,” and one to “marry.” It’s a stupid game. I only bring it up because it reminds me of the three-headed monster that was the Cubs catching situation in 2001.
For some reason, the Cubs kept Joe Girardi, Todd Hundley, and Robert Machado all on the roster for the majority of the 2001 season, despite none of them being any good.
Machado makes the list mainly because he forced me to choose to “do” Todd Hundley. Thanks a lot, Machado.
Low Point: Pretty much every time he looked at the lineup card and “Hundley” was written there instead of his name.
Did You Know? Machado came up with the White Sox? You did? Well, then, I have nothing to add.
