Ricketts didn't pay Theo all that money, give up talented prospects for him, then go get his hand picked GM(who will also cost the Cubs something), to then turn around and stick his nose in the baseball side of things. Whoever the Cubs hire as manager, that person will be 100% Theo's call. This is fully Theo's show!
Expect a Mike Maddux, Dale Sveum, Pete Mackanin type of hire. Long time baseball men, with ties to teams with recent success.
