Here's to Jim Essian.Brought in from Iowa to replace Don Zimmer and resurrect a sleepwalking Cubs team, Essian guided the Cubs to a 59-63 record the rest of the way.During that magical 1991 season, Essian picked up a number of admirers."[Jim Essian] acts like the the master of ceremonies in a strip joint."Hall of Fame baseball writer Jerome Holtzman, now the official historian for Major League Baseball:"Essian has been critized for his â€˜nice-guy approach.' He also has come under fire because of the way he stands in the dugout and claps his hands in approval of a good play.What's wrong with that?""It wasn't Essian's fault."With endorsements like these, it's curious why Jim Hendry won't pull the plug on this ridiculous Lou Piniella experiment and install Jim Essian as the next manager of the Chicago Cubs.Essian won 59 games while wearing number 41.It's obvious that Essian is not only the best choice to manage the club, but that John McDonough should act quickly to set up a "Jim Essian Day" at the ballpark.
