Well, the saga goes on…perhaps. Ryne Sandberg an iconic player and then Iowa Farm system manager, gone? Say it isn’t so, but at this time it appears that on Wednesday, the Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry made an announcement that Ryne Sandberg has declined to manage the Cubs very successful Cubs Iowa Triple A Team!
Sandberg just recently missed out the chance to manage Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs team after Mike Quade was chosen over him to manage the Cubs. The final decision was reached by General Manager Jim Hendry and then “backed” by team owner Ricketts.
It is a shame. The fairy tale was writing itself. The beloved first baseman had the hearts and very definitely the love of the hometown fans! Now the Hall of Famer has packed his bags, and is off to other destinations unknown and taking with him perhaps the momentum; the tale of a city in love with its team and the final realization of the world series itself!
Cinderella left when the midnight bell sounded so maybe it was just time for Sandberg to find his perfect vehicle to the team that will bring this young celebrated player and coach the position of his dreams.
Chicago’s fan base may even go with you where ever it may be that Ryne Sandberg happens to land, and for this writer, Here’s to looking at you kid! Wishing you the greatest season of your life where ever you may land!And further on that note here’s to hoping the Chicago Cubs 2011 season is something to talk about!
