Funny that he wasn't willing to wait a couple more years in the Cubs farm system.

It is fair to assume that neither Mike Quade nor Terry Francona is going anywhere soon. Charlie Manuel turns 67 next year and the Phillies might view Ryne Sandberg as a possible successor. The Phils can now monitor how well Sandberg does as a AAA manager in their system.
