    Ryne Sandberg joins Phillies franchise

    Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg hired by Philadelphia Phillies to manage Triple-A team - ESPN

    Talk about being a baby. Dont get the chance you "think" you deserve, so you make a lateral move to another franchise...

    You mean he's wrong for taking a job? That's a poor judgment.

    Can't really blame him. If the Cubs weren't going to give him a chance this year, they probably never were.

    Re: Ryne Sandberg joins Phillies franchise

    If I'm passed over by a company I work for, I'd look around. That's just normal.

    Don't you think the Iowa job would have been incredibly awkward, at best?

    Re: Ryne Sandberg joins Phillies franchise

    I don't see that way at all. How can you call him a baby? Have you read into his situation or heard his explanation at all? I really think you should reserve your judgment a little.

    I would expect the Cubs job to open up before the Phillies job. In another year or two, the Cubs may have given him a chance.

    Re: Ryne Sandberg joins Phillies franchise

    I guess I see it much differently. He was beat out by a canidate who, no question, had more on his resume than Sandberg did.

    I lost a lot of respect for Ryno through this whole thing, but to each their own I guess...

    Because he's made it pretty clear that his goal is to be a major league manager, not a triple A manager. The Cubs did what they felt they had to do when they hired Quade. He's doing what he feels he needs to do. I don't blame either party.

    The best way to get a new job higher up the ladder is to beef-up your resume with lots and lots of different experience. Sure he's still AAA but he's in a different organization with a different culture... No such thing as bad experience. And didn't the Phils draft him originally?

    Re: Ryne Sandberg joins Phillies franchise

    Could this be the opposite of his playing days? Goes from Phils to Cubs and becomes Hall of Fame player. Starts his coaching career with Cubs then goes to Phils to dominate? I hope not.

    Clarify- not that I don't want him to succeed, just want it to be with the Cubbies

    Yet he accepts a Triple A managing job for the Phillies. One could argue that he took a demotion...

    If you believe that, then you must think the Cubs made a mistake in hiring Quade.
