Ryne Sandberg Inches Closer to Becoming a Major League Manager

Ryne Sandberg is my favorite Cubs player of all time, so this is bittersweet as I always had a sense or maybe it was just hope, that Ryno would become the manager of the Cubs sooner than later.  Well, Ryno got some good news today as he was named to the Philadelphia Phillies coaching staff.  Starting next year he will serve as the Phillies third base coach, and lines him up to what many feel will be his first managerial job at the Major League level, with the Phillies, after Charlie Manuel is gone.  I wish him nothing but the best, just wish it was with the Cubs organization.

Thanks for reading,

Deadline Day Around the League

The Cubs aren’t the only one who are going to be dealing today.  Here are some of the latest happenings around the league.  There will be plenty of updates as the day continues.

  • It looks like Shane Victorino will be traded to the Dodgers.  It sounds like Josh Lindblom would be going to the Phillies.  Nothing official yet, but this means the Dodgers will not be going after Alfonso Soriano.
  • UPDATE:  It is officail The Philies have traded OF Shane Victorino to the Dodgers for relief pitcher Josh Lindblom and SP Ethan Martin.
  • The D-Backs appear to be in the market for a big time starting pitcher.  No names yet, but maybe they would be interested in Matt Garza?
  • Although the Phillies have traded away Shane Victorino there are still reports they are talking to the Giants about Hunter Pence.
  • UPDATE:  Hunter Pence on his way to San Francisco for C/1B prospect Tommy Joseph.  Nate Schierholtz is going to the Phillies as well, as does Seth Rosin.

  • The Cardinals have acquired Edward Mujica for Zachary Cox.
  • Marlins are close to sending Gaby Sanchez to Pirates for Gorkys Hernandez.
  • UPDATE:  According to Ken Rosenthal Gaby Sanchez to the Pirates is a done deal.  This also includes a competitive balance pick going to the Marlins.
