Poor guy. One day, maybe Theo and Jed will allow him to fill out a lineup card (word is, that is the real reason why Svuem was fired, he resisted their "instructions" on how to fill it out).

This is just as good as when the Cubs had to hire Len Kasper after their first three choices turned them down.

I saw the headline of "Renteria to manage Cubs" and I assumed it must have been Edgar. That generation of players is now starting to manage, after all.

And Wittenmyer claims Renteria was the first choice all along.

That's humorous.

That is humorous. Of course, they didn't want guys like Girardi, or even Brad Ausmus, ahead of Renteria.

That's who keeps springing to mind everytime I hear that last name.

Wow, nice of the Cubs Marketing staff to write this for Gordon. I don't feel like looking it up, but all you have to do is look up Theo's criteria for hiring Sveum's replacement. It was like reading Girarfi's resume.

This, no finished deal on Wrigley, WGN TV up in the air, now the star search for radio color man (if Kerry Wood turns them down, they ought to sell the team) and the three year, no five year, no seven year plan to rebuild the team on the field really has to wonder how this organization is being run.

Sometimes I wonder if Epstein knew what he was getting into when he took the job. I see pictures of him, always with that tight-lipped, pensive look on his face, and I think that rather than deeply considering his next chess-master move he's asking himself why the hell he did this.

The Cubs have been run as a tourist attraction for decades and now that trend is headed to its logical conclusion as Ricketts makes it into a theme park. The baseball operation remains secondary to the ballpark/neighborhood mystique. If Epstein didn't know that, he didn't do his homework or he didn't get good advice, or both. When Girardi turned down the job it should have rung a loud bell in Theo's office.

The Wittenmyer story shows again how deep the Cubs' honeydripping has flowed. It wouldn't matter who was hired because after all, who doesn't love a theme park?

A long time minor league manager is perfect for the Cubs, seeing they put out minor league talent

I thought they pulled a Sox: Thought they were hiring Edgar, but got this guy instead.
