Well, the All-Star Game is done. And, in case you stopped paying attention around Mother’s Day…or Tax Day, the Chicago Cubs are, too.
One of the few enjoyable things for Cubs fans this season has been watching Starlin Castro develop as a player. The Cubs’ 21-year-old shortstop has the third best batting average in the National League.
On Tuesday night Chicago Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster plopped himself down in the interview room at Wrigley Field and told the pack of assembled reporters, “not a fan in Chicago cares what I have to say right now.”
The Cubs are feeling the pressure from some large contracts that are limiting the moves they’re capable of making this off-season.
For Cubs fans, there’s only one thing bleaker than the 2010 regular season. And that’s the 2010 offseason. So far, at least.
Last week, when pitching coach Larry Rothschild bolted the Chicago Cubs (honestly, finally) for the New York Yankees (honestly, seriously?) after a nine-year stint on Chicago’s North Side, I’m pretty sure that one name was the first to pop into most fans’ minds as a potential replacement.
After announcing he would not return to the Cubs organization last week, Ryne Sandberg was hired by the Philadelphia Phillies to be the club’s triple-A manager Monday.
When Mike Quade was named the next manager of the Chicago Cubs, many wondered what would happen with Ryne Sandberg.

The 2005 White Sox season is one no Sox fan will soon forget. When Ozzie Guillen looks back on that season, he does so with fond memories of the players who made his job so easy.
Newsradio 780’s Bernie Tafoya caught up with Tom Ricketts and asked him about his newest employee and the future of another.
I want the old Tom Ricketts back. Introduced as Cubs’ chairman not even a year ago, he stood next to the lectern and described his plans for success with the clarity, confidence and personal connection […]
By David Schuster– Mike Quade is a huge fishing fan and using a term out of that sport he sure landed a whopper Tuesday. Who would have thought that the day he took over for […]
By Matt Spiegel– There’s very little intrinsically wrong with the Mike Quade hiring. He’s certainly qualified and deserving of the opportunity, and did a fine job in his interim role. It’s probably true that anyone, […]
Ryne Sandberg spoke with Barry Rozner, of the Daily Herald and The Score, shortly after after hearing that Mike Quade would be named the manager of the Cubs. “It’s hard for me to answer questions […]
CHICAGO (WSCR) – All the speculation surrounding the future manager of the Cubs officially ended Tuesday with the announcement that the team has hired Mike Quade. The Cubs signed Quade to a two-year contract, along […]
I enjoy the work of SI.com’s Will Carroll, but I really hope he’s wrong. The former Baseball Prospectus Senior Writer and current BWAA member reported via Twitter yesterday afternoon that the Cubs were planning to […]
The Ryne Sandberg as bench coach idea, under Mike Quade as manager, would be the dumbest in an impressive line of bad Cubs maneuvers. Will Carroll of SI.com reported this as a possibility from a […]
Mike Quade could indeed end up being named the Cubs permanent Manager but the report that Ryne Sandberg would be his bench coach is both bogus and ludicrous.
