    It's all about Ryno's season ending before he's named to the job. Everything else is just something to keep newspeople talking.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I'm betting fredi gets hired by the braves. He has good relationships ther with the ATL front office, was a disciple of Bobby Cox, and he lives in the Atlanta area.

    Curious as to why you think that?

    I think he will end up in Atlanta.

    What makes you think he is qualified to be the next Cubs manager? Other than being a Cubs legend. Sorry but I don't think he would make a good manager plus he would be next to impossible to fire if things went bad. Bart Starr was the head coach for the Packers for 7 seasons because they didn't know how to fire him.

    Well he has had success at Iowa and Peoria, so I see more things that show me he is qualified as opposed to not being qualified.

    I'm assuming you are 100% against the Hoiberg hire if you wouldn't like a Sandberg hire?

    At the time I was but the Cubs job is probably the most difficult job in all of baseball. Can't really say the same about the ISU job. And I could really care less how his minor league teams do, that doesn't say anything as to how good of a manager he will be. Joe Torre is an pretty bad manager but won a ton of games because of the talent the Yankees had.

    Based on the Joe Torre analogy, if there is lesser talent in the minors, and Sandberg has been successful, you would think he would be even more successful the majors, right?

    But it says how bad of a manager he will be?

    I think I'd rather see Girardi as the Cubs skip. But I don't really see much that says Ryno is an automatic failure waiting to happen

    Edit: And if the Cubs are the toughest job in MLB (not sure I'd necessarily disagree, mind you) .... wouldn't it make sense to bring in a manager who's won through the ranks and is a hall of famer for that very same club? Seems to me that arguement suggests you bring in somebody intimately involved with the organization. Bringing in outsiders for the past hundred-some years hasn't really done much.

    What? You realize other teams have more talent in the majors too, right?

    OMG THEY DO???

    Yes I realize that, I'm not stupid. The guy claimed Joe Torre was a horrible manager and the only reason he was successful is because he had talent.

    Now look at Sandberg. He has been successful with minor league talent, so if having talent makes you a better manager, wouldn't being promoted to the Majors ensure that a manager at the minor league level, who has been successful, would be successful in the majors, where there is more talent?
