Schuster: Pat Gillick To The Cubs?

By David Schuster-

CHICAGO (CBS) Major league sources have told me that Cubs owner Tom Ricketts has spoken to Pat Gillick as recently as last week.

Gillick is renowned in baseball circles. He has been the General manager of four different teams and has won three World Series. He is also in the Hall Of Fame.

We can only confirm that conversations have been had so don’t jump to conclusions just yet. Also don’t think that Gillick’s potential hiring would automatically be the end for Jim Hendry. Gillick and Hendry have gotten along famously in the past and there is a frame work for a business relationship there.

Gillick recently went on record as saying that he doesn’t want a full time job anymore. He will be 74 years old next month. So the possibility exists that he could be brought in as a consultant but maybe with extra power much like Scotty Bowman is with the Blackhawks.

And for all those who say what about what Ricketts said that he wont bring in a baseball person to watch his baseball people, people change their minds all the time.

Stay tuned!

    I’m laughing my a#s off at you, Cubs fan.

    Dunn might suck, but at least my team is still in it.

    20 games under what? Players fighting with coaches? Attendance down at the frat house you call a baseball field?

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!! Best year ever for a Sox fan that hates anything blue.

      What do you do during football season? Pretty sure you’re sitting next to those Cubs fans at BEARS games! Or at Bulls games in the winter…..Always get a kick out of stupid Sox fans who somehow think Cubs fans care what they think. The “little brother” complex that Sox fans have is incredible.

    ” all in” I’m loving it if the sox had any people in the ballmall they could add payroll Kenny Williams is a genius


    “Easy, there,
    it’s not the Cubs fan

    On an old-timey chalk board with white chalk, Tom Ricketts should write in all capital letters:
    2014 WORLD SERIES CHAMPS! And, start thinking right away what it’s going to take to get there. Cloning former Yankee legends might be a reality by 2014.
