Theo Epstein's Theology 101 And Building Last Place Teams

I just checked MLB.com to verify this, but at the exact instant I write this blog, Theo Epstein and his band of baseball savants, including his right-hand man Jed Hoyer, are responsible for building three last place teams. That's right, The Cubs, The Padres, and The Boston Red Sox are all in last place right now. All they need is five years and a billion dollars and they can build something really special. I think most of us could.


The sweet smell of... last place


And the builder of the last place San Diego Padres' franchise. Sure are pretty, aren't they?


That's all. Just wanted to point out that the general management of the Cubs has built three teams that are currently in last place.

Go Cubs, go. 

January 25, 2015: So, it turns out I was probably wrong about whatever I was saying here, and I'm really looking forward to the 2015 season.
