Sandberg back as Peoria skipper… Cubs also get leftovers from the Pirates

This is relatively old news but Ryno is back as manager of the Peoria Chiefs, the Cubs Class A team.  Ryno didn’t do half bad his first year as a manager going 71-68 with the Chiefs.  And one of my New Year’s resolutions is to make it to at least one Peoria Chiefs game this year.

Also mentioned in Carrie Muskat’s article about Sandberg is that the Cubs have brought on former Bucs GM Dave Littlefield to join the scouting staff.  I did a double take when I read that then drew a deep sigh of resignation.  Todd, our resident Pirate fan, has gone on numerous rants on Littlefield on our podcast.  Find any episode that Todd is co-hosting and I’ll guarantee that he spends a few minutes on the topic. 

So we’ll see.

  1. If you are looking for overpriced, over-the-hill veterans or no-talent cheap players then Littlefield is your man! There’s nobody better than Dave at identifying those kinds of players!
