UPDATED: Rumor: Quade As Manager And Sandberg As Bench Coach

UPDATE: An Hour after his initial report, Will Carroll made a second tweet saying “Just talked to a guy who’s VERY wired into Cubs. Says I’m wrong, esp. on timing. We’ll see, but he’s seldom wrong.”

For more on Quade, Sandberg and the Cubs’ managerial position read the most recent Matt Spiegel and David Schuster blogs.

The Cubs are close to naming Mike Quade as the team’s manager, according to Will Carroll of Sports Illustrated. Carroll reports on his Twitter page that Ryne Sandberg would join Quade’s staff as the bench coach.

Carroll tweeted at 4:02 p.m. today: “Hearing that Mike Quade will be named Cubs manager, with Ryne Sandberg as bench coach. Could happen as soon as next week.”

    Who cares. Does it really matter. One look at the goof owner that this team is saddled with tells one everything they need to know.

    I like the move. Quade gets his 20 games goes 5-15 and gets fired. Then Sandberg takes over as manager with a bench coach salary. This makes perfect business sense. And who said private ownership would not get us a world series ring.

  • Jo

    Give us JOE GIRARDI !!!!!!

    A gutless, insipid choice from a new owner whose first move was fixing the bathrooms.

    Pleasing the fans doesn’t win championships.

    Strike two for Mr. Rickets.

    Strike one?

    Pick any other prior decision he’s made.

  • Ric Flair

    Hey Rickett’s sell the team now…to someome who knows what he is doing and will spend money

  • Dave

    The team spent money, just not on the correct players or players who want to play hard 100% of the time and run out everything or players that can keep their cool all season long. Oh well rebuilding for the future. Can you say 110 years and counting!!!!
