Good for Ryno, he earned his keep in the minors and will finally get a real crack at big-league managing.

I know as a Sox fan, I don't have much of a right to point out other team's shortcomings right now, but, eeeeeeeeeeeeee-yikes:

This should eliminate any of that Cub fan happy talk of Sandberg stepping in when Sveum gets the axe, sooner or later, unless Sandberg has one of those dream job loopholes in his contract like Lou Holtz had to get the Notre Dame job.

I'm pretty sure the Cubs burned that bridge with Sandberg when they chose Sveum over him a few years ago.

Hey - at least they now have Casper Wells to shore up their bench!

I don't think I realized what a fat contract Ryan Howard has right now, especially given his injuries the past two seasons.

Oh yeah, that huge extension that he got only kicked in last year or something.
