Several members of the Cubs were upset after hearing backup catcher Miguel Montero throw his pitcher Jake Arrieta under the bus for the seven steals in Tuesday night's game.
The Cubs rectified the situation by placing Montero on the designated for assignment list and recalling young catcher Victor Caratini to the majors the following day.
However, MLB Network's Peter Gammons is reporting on the Rich Eisen show that some of the Cubs wanted to use the stage visiting President Donald Trump at the Oval Office to break the news to Montero. Obviously, this idea was vetoed by management because that would have been the most savage firing in major league baseball history. Hopefully, this just a behind-the-scene joke and not something that was actually voted on...LOL.
Check out Gammons' talking about the provocative idea in the following video.
