Red face Ryno promoted to Iowa Cubs manager

Cubs promote Sandberg to manage Triple-A Iowa
December 7, 2009 4:52 PM | No Comments
By Paul Sullivan

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Cubs promoted Hall of Fame second baseman Ryne Sanderg today, naming him manager of their Triple-A Iowa team.

The Cubs had a vacancy at Triple-A when Iowa manager Bobby Dickerson took a job as a roving minor-league infield coordinator and Latin American field coordinator for Baltimore.

Sandberg led Double-A Tennessee to the Southern League championship series in his first year managing the Smokies, following two seasons at Class-A Peoria. While he's on record as saying his goal is to someday manage the Cubs, Lou Piniella may have thrown a fly in the ointment by hinting he wants to stay beyond the 2010 season.

On Monday, Piniella joked that he's going to get a 15-year extension. Whether or not Sandberg would be first in line for Piniella's job is unknown, though he'd certainly be a candidate if Piniella left after 2010.

How long Sandberg intends to wait on a major league managing job is another story altogether.
I'm thinking they are really looking at Ryno being a factor with the Cubs when Lou leaves with how they have promoted him level to level.... although, I still think he needs at least one year as a bench coach to learn the position at the big league level...
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?

now the endless mouthpieces of Chicago sports media will want Lou canned if the Cubs are off to a poor start so they can bring in their hero.

At least managing in Iowa his moves will be under a greater magnifying glass.
Whether it comes from [the media] or even comes from some fans, who are deservedly upset at a given point, it's really just noise. If we let it affect our decision making, shame on us

EXPLETIVE! This is not good news. Well, hopefully Sweet Lou will stay beyond 2010 and that idiot will grew inpatient and go ELSEWHERE.

Trying to take another man's job away. What a sense of entitlement that
(expletive) has.

Then again, this is a "man" who stole another man's wife. What's the big deal about another man's job?
