SIlver Lining From The Cubs Blowout: John Russell’s Sarcasm

Perhaps the one positive to come out of yesterday’s 17-2 Pirates loss to the Cubs was the following uncharacteristically snappy quote from John Russell, who apparently requires exactly a fifteen-run defeat to briefly display humanity:

Even typically stoic manager John Russell replied sarcastically to a Chicago radio reporter’s question about whether he found it “embarrassing” to give up 14 runs that early.

“No, it’s great,” Russell said. “I love it.”

In a way, getting shut down by Tom Gorzellanny is almost as embarrassing, so maybe we’ll actually hear a “gosh DARNIT!” out of Russell in tomorrow’s paper.
