Cubs choose to stay with Quade as manager
Successful audition as interim skipper results in two-year deal
CHICAGO -- After 17 seasons and 2,378 games in such towns as Macon, Scranton, Huntsville and Des Moines, plus another seven years as a big league coach, Mike Quade has made it.
The Cubs announced Tuesday they will keep Quade as manager, signing him to a two-year contract with a club option for a third, after he steered the team to a 24-13 record during a six-week tryout. You can remove the "interim" label from his name.
Sacrificial lamb until the big contracts come off the books. Better than throwing Sandberg to the dogs.
