 2018 Fan’s Weekend Manager and President nicknames

Joe Maddon (Papa Smurf)Joe Maddon is leading, mentoring, coaching, and helping his team toward yet another playoff appearance.

“How much further to the postseason, Papa?”

“Not much further my little Smurfs!”

Next. Arrieta could have made this good team even better. dark

Theo Epstein (Thanos) – Theo has done it all to get world pitching domination. Now he snaps his fingers and players like Hamels, Kintzler and Murphy appear. He still has a small stable of sidelined hurlers like Darvish and Morrow who will come back sometime and make our pitching even better.

Who has overall better pitching than the Cubs? Thank you Theo “Thanos” Epstein; you are ruling the pitching universe.
