Quade added to NL coaching staff in All-Star Game

Cubs manager Mike Quade has replaced former Nationals manager Jim Riggleman as a member of Bruce Bochy's National League All-Star staff. Quade joins Arizona's Kirk Gibson and the Giants coaching staff to support Bochy in the All-Star Game July 12 at Chase Field in Arizona.

The addition of Quade can't be based upon his Cubs' performance to date. The Cubs came into Tuesday with a 32-46 record and 11 1/2 games out of first place in the NL Central. They've faced injuries, sure, but so have a lot of other teams. Bochy naming Quade to the All-Star staff is instead likely a treat for the first-year manager of the Cubs.

As I noted on Twitter, maybe Bochy should let Quade coach third base. Bochy will surely use Giants third-base coach Tim Flannery, but Quade would work as well. In following the Cubs on a daily basis when Quade coached third, I can't remember a bad send or hold, whereas this season it's happened frequently with Ivan DeJesus as the Cubs third-base coach. It's only anecdotal evidence at my disposal, but I remember Quade being a stellar third-base coach.

Quade play his guys hard till the end of last year and took 3 out of 4 from the Padres, before the Gaints faced them for the last three games of the year. The NL west was not decided till the last game of the year. BB is rewarding him for the help he gave the Giants.
