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.
Pretty much, though Quade should do a solid job. The Rynomaniacs are a treat to listen to right now. Talk about a bunch of whiny tards....
