Mike Quade might have earned himself a new nickname Wednesday. It's more of a sobriquet, really.
Like: "Remember that one season the Cubs had Ol' Copernicus as manager? Whatever happened to that dude?"
After yet another desultory loss -- 9-1 to the Philadelphia Phillies -- on a day on which the temperature on the field was in the triple digits, Quade pointed out that Starlin Castro losing a ball in the sun in the first inning set the tone for a miserable afternoon for the fans and Quade. And really, for baseball in general.
