Despite winning 97 games and posting MLB’s best record from the end of June, the 2015 Chicago Cubs barely made the post-season, laying claim to the second (and last) wild card playoff spot. And that suits them just fine!
Play-in game? No home-field advantage? No Problem!
When you're a wild card team with a wild card manager, anything can happen!
This young team never quits, loves to overcome challenges, and has a trump card in its back pocket in mad scientist manager Joe Maddon. Having already dispatched the Pirates (98 win) and the Cardinals (100 wins), they’re ready to hit the road in the NLCS.
By definition a "wild card" is mercurial, flexible, and can secure a win in many ways – just like Maddon‘s Cubs. Sometimes they homer, sometimes they bunt, sometimes they dominate from the mound...sometimes they bring in a magician, a petting zoo or a brunch buffet; that’s the genius of our Joe(ker).
Show your faith in the Cubs’ playoff chances with this fun new shirt that celebrates our wild card status and warns teams to beware – because we have the wildest card of all: Joe Maddon!
