Ryne Sandberg Is Officially Back With The Phillies

After the bitter disappointment that followed as the Cubs named Mike Quade their new Manager, Ryne Sandberg left the Organization for good.

    The Cubs will take at least 2 to 3 years to turn things aurnod if they go the total rebuild route. That is how long it will take the all of the bad contracts to come off the books and be replaced with competent players. I am in this for the log haul so I don’t mind waiting as long as they have a plan and they stick to it. The Cubs have been running the ship in a very ad hoc manner for a long time and this is the predictable result.RE Aramis: I know there are a lot of people that don’t like him (quasi count me as one) but the fact of the matter is that he is our best hitter and has been for some time. The Cubs have to offer him a fair deal (4 years at $15M per) to keep him aurnod because there is nobody that can adequately replace him at this time. Vitters may be a bust, so you can’t count ont he farm. The free agent crop is ugly (Edwin Encarnacion being the best in my opinion). The upside is that you can always trade him if the farm spits out a good prospect in the next couple of years.RE Quade: The Cubs are going nowhere in 2012 so why not let Quade finish out the contract? I see very little downside unless he starts doing crazy things that endanger the players. Then you can fire him with cause.
