The Cubs have improved to 16-7 under interim Manager, Mike Quade. While he has received some criticism for not playing the September call-ups very much, the Cubs have seemed to turn things around. The club seeks a second straight sweep today in Florida. On the current road trip, the Cubs are 7-1 and have seen better pitching and timely hitting.
While speculation surrounds the search for a new manager, Mike Quade is making a name for himself as the Cubs continue to surge.
Questions remain whether he can accomplish a season long winner, but Quade has proven that he can manage. The Cubs are more relaxed and playing their best baseball of the season now. As Ryne Sandberg and Joe Girardi lead the list of candidates for the managerial role, Quade has quietly put himself in position to be seriously considered as well. No one can argue with the success that he has had in his short tenure as Manager. The Cubs have been vastly improved under his leadership.
