It's all about positioning. They'll let him stay there for a bit, become a known quantity, and then they can trade him for an older, veteran special assistant on another team with a really hot up-and-coming third base coach as a throw-in.

Nobody ##### with De Jesus.

Congratulations, dJF. I know this is an emotional moment for you.

Well played.

dJf, with your burgeoning guitar skeelz, can we expect an mp3 of "The Ballad of Ivan DeJesus" sometime soon?

So what is the big deal? He is a special assistant. As a manager in the minors he has won some awards. He was in the Houston minor league system and last time I looked the Astros did a pretty good job of developing talent. Again not sure why this is a big deal in a negative way.

uhh, no.

It's not and I don't believe anyone is saying that it is. I, for one, am ecstatic.

Sorry, I think I misunderstood the intro. I didn't actually read who was the person contributing the thread. If I had seen the name I would have taken the passage "Words fail me" differently.

Once again I apologize, ignore my outburst, carry on.

No problem, McCoy. It's becoming frustratingly rare when I can actually be gleeful about something relating to the Cubs that I was speechless.

I thought that he was dead. Who was it that got shot in South America a year or two ago?
   11. My guest will be Jermaine Allensworth Posted: November 08, 2006 at 07:35 PM (#2233512)
Ivan Calderon.

Ah, yes. Thanks.

Hey, Gerald Perry's been hired as the Cubs' hitting coach.
