Bill Mueller – an American League batting champion who won a World Series ring with the 2004 Boston Red Sox – has resigned as Cubs hitting coach.
Jim Hendry knew it would go viral the instant Albert Pujols reached out for The Hug Heard Round The World.
The Cubs can’t clone the 2004 Boston Red Sox, even if Manny Ramirez becomes Bill Mueller’s assistant hitting coach.
Will Jon Lester be this year’s Anibal Sanchez or Masahiro Tanaka 2.0?
Imagine Manny Ramirez in a Cubs uniform next season, working with Javier Baez, Jorge Soler and Kris Bryant in the batting cage every day.
