Well, that's a pretty short list, IMO. Really short if you remove Dusty Baker, Lou Piniella and Ryne Sandberg.

Whether or not bachelor #1 answers these plaintive cries is the next fascinating chapter in "For Whom The Cubbies Foil"
Girardi is already the highest paid manager in baseball, I just can't see him leaving the craziness of the Bronx to come and manage a team in serious rebuilding mode here, unless the Cubs offer him the moon.
