Today’s si.com column …

… is about Ryne Sandberg, one of the all-time greats.

To be blunt, the Cubs treated Sandberg like crap. Not only did they not hire him to manage (fine), they didn’t even offer him a coaching position on the MLB staff. This is one of the three or four greatest players in your franchise’s history. Makes no real sense.

  1. Why no mention that the Cubs were the only team that were willing to give Sandberg (a guy who showed no interest in managing throughout his career) a chance managing five years ago?
    Or that he was the one to walk away from the organization this offseason after he didn’t get the managing job – but before having another offer?
    It was pretty common knowledge around Chicago that Sandberg would only take the manager’s job – he wasn’t going to stick around for any other position. Plus, do you honestly believe the dynamic of Quade as manager & Sandberg as bench coach would have worked? It would have undermined Quade from Day 1.
