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.
