Jim Schlossnagle calls himself a ‘dumb’ coach...

Jim Schlossnagle tweeted he was a “dumb college coach” Monday night...

...for not letting Jake Arrieta hit in college!

Because look!

Yes, the former TCU pitcher now known for his slinging skills in the Bigs knocked out a three-run homer Monday night in the Chicago Cubs’ NLDS game against the San Francisco Giants. It was off the great Madison Bumgarner, too — the first home run Bumgarner has given a pitcher. Ever.

The dinger gave the Cubs an early 3-0 lead in the second inning.

It prompted Jim Schlossnagle to tweet this sweet congratulatory message to his former player.

Not all that dumb, Schloss. :)

(Haha you thought it was something negative, didn’t you?)
