Quade/Sandberg Who is your choice?


Quade would be a great choice if the Cubs are looking in the short term.

Sandberg would be the best choice if the the Cubs are looking ahead to years beyond 2011.

    That’s an easy one. Quade, by a mile. I don’t understand your reasoning about Quade being short term and Sandberg being long term, after 2011. Help me out on that.

    Here are my thoughts. After Piniella woke up from his coma and went back home to Florida, the Cubs have done pretty damn well with Quade. Right now their record is 23-12 under Quade. I think he has earned a chance for a full season at the helm. Sandberg, for all of his success in the minors managing, still amounts to nothing more than a sentimental “fan favorite” choice. I won’t speak for anyone else here, but I have had all I can stand of that bullshit. I’ll be 47 years old by the end of the year, and I have run out of patience with this team. I’m beginning to seriously doubt that the Cubs will win a World Series in my lifetime. Tom Ricketts has been a colossal FAILURE as the new owner. And he needs to have that said straight in his face. Put the sentiment and nostalgia aside. Bulldoze Wrigley Field. Or at least get rid of the goddamned horse troughs. Hey Tom, do you like pissing in those things? Would you let your kids piss in those things? Go out and grow some fucking balls, shitcan Moe Hendry, and hire a GM with a fucking clue. Then you’ll be able to see what needs to be done. Wake up Ricketts! The Cincinatti fucking Reds won the fucking division. Dusty fucking Baker! MY HEAD IS GOING TO EXPLODE!!!!!!!!!!

    Right now it appears the biggest problem is that one of the sheeple owns the team. Nothing will change unless his head is surgically removed from his ass.

    Until Hendry is gone it doesn’t matter. They will continue to lose. Yes, Sandberg is the sentimental favorite…but it won’t bother me if he doesn’t get the job at this time because it is very likely that the Cubs will struggle for a few years. I’d like to see Kenney gone, too. The stench must be removed.

    chucky, your last paragraph says it all.

    Mike Quade really earned his job as full time manager for 2011. The team seemed more relaxed after Piniella left. Let’s face it: Ryan Dempster is essentially a .500 pitcher. Trade Dempster and his 13.5 million dollar salary. Put Starlin Castro in the deal as well. In a full season, you are probably looking at 30-35 errors from Castro. Disappointing end to a disappointing season. I wish Piniella would have retired two months before he did. I will not be attending the Cubs Caravan when it comes to Peoria. Why continue to support this lunacy from Hendry?

    Dear Lil’ Z (or is it Big Z?):

    Regardless of whether or not you have truly learned anything from anger management classes…and whether or not you remain a Cub (as for me, I hope they trade you, time to clean house)…I encourage you to watch the performances from last night of two “TRUE ACES”, Roy Halladay & Cliff Lee.

    Have a nice winter! Be Well.
