This is the Cubs’ ticket today, and that’s Ivan DayGeezus, who was traded by the Cubs to the Phillies in 1982 for Larry Bowa and Ryne Sandberg.

DeJesus went on to play three seasons for the Phillies, hitting around .250 with a total of seven home runs, 139 RBIs and 37 stolen bases.

Sandberg went on to become a Hall of Famer.

But oh, wait, what’s that? Sandberg is our manager now and Bowa is going to be his assistant next year?* Looks like the joke’s on you, Chicagolandtownlandcitybatmanland:

That said, both teams stink, so it doesn’t even matter.

*I’m speculating.

    Jokes on them, the Phils have actually won something in the past 100 years.

    Oh come on, it is funny – didn’t know the people in the midwest were that sharp!

      I agree, it was pretty witty. This Kylie tool is always angry and defensive. You know, the type of fan that puts the rest of us in a negative light. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was part of the Dirty 30 and Pukemon was his good friend.

    I think its great!! Awesome little joke. All in fun.

    How many World Series did Sandberg play in ?

  • gerf August 30, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Sandberg is our manager now, so…

    Wait, how is the joke on them?

  • ThePhillyFlash August 30, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    I thought it was goofy fun.

  • lysol August 30, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    Yea, because everyone would take Ryne Sandberg the Manager over Ryne Sandberg the Player…

  • Da cuz August 30, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    Very large dude with no shirt on and huge man boobs at the game. Violation!

    What is this about Sandberg hiring Bowa next year…is this a real rumor? First time I’ve heard it even speculated…

    • Maxie August 30, 2013 at 10:51 pm

      If it is true, it is great news. Bowa is an outstanding base couch. The Phillies could certainly use one.

    How many Cubs fan have seen their team win the World Series? I have seen the Phillies play in 5 of them in my lifetime winning two of them? Cubs fans my age have never seen them in the series. So…jokes on them.

      True, but what’s up with your name?…….
