As for Sammy, the door back to to Wrigley can remain dark. And he can build his own statue somewhere else.
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. didn’t see a reason to wait until the offseason to explore other possibilities.
Former Cubs star and current interim Phillies manager talked with Connor McKnight and Barry Rozner on the Hit and Run Show Sunday morning.
Michael Young had four hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday in Ryne Sandberg’s return to Wrigley Field.
Ryne Sandberg is back at Wrigley Field. Only this time, he’s sitting in the visitor’s dugout.

Longtime Cubs great and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg will replace Manuel.
25 years ago, people probably were saying the same things about lights too, and that’s worked out OK.
As a kid, the guy was my favorite player, so I’m certainly biased. But when it comes to keeping score of the all-time greatest Hall of Fame induction speeches, I think Ryne Sandberg’s wins in a rout.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times joined The Mully and Hanley Show to defend Epstein’s actions.
Cubs fans upset that Ryne Sandberg won’t be the new manager aren’t alone.
In the press release detailing Quade’s dismissal from the Cubs, Theo Epstein stated he was looking for a manager who had experience managing or coaching at the major league level, effectively ending the idea that Sandberg would take over.
When the Cubs dismissed manager Mike Quade in an official release, the team included one other key piece of information.
