1/17 Top 10 from Dempster

Ryan Dempster interviewed players and others during a show Friday night, the first night of the Cubs Convention. In case you missed it, here was Dempster’s “Top 10 reasons the Cubs hired Joe Maddon:”

10. “We misheard and thought he knew [actress] Eva Longoria.”

9. “We’re trying to set the Guinness Book of World Records for most fired managers.”

8. “We needed someone who would take the leftover Harry Carry glasses.”

7. “The Cubs’ bus keeps breaking down so we figured, hey, we can use his RV.”

6. “Most managers take shots from the media; Joe Maddon buys shots for the media.”

5. “We have a young team here in Chicago, and if 60 is the new 40, well, we need someone to manage all of our toddlers.”

4. “[Model wife of former Cub David DeJesus] Kim DeJesus told us to.”

3. “He’s the son of a plumber and, let’s just face it: the Wrigley bathrooms need a ton of work.”

2. “We just feel bad for anyone who lives in Florida.”

1. “Well, because of all the other managers we tried to tamper with, none of them called us back.”
