Sandberg? You can't be serious

I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

The Cardinals have reportedly asked the Phillies for permission to interview their Class AAA manager, Ryne Sandberg for the opening created when Tony La Russa retired as skipper.


Sandberg has no experience as a major league skipper. He has no experience as a winner. And he was apparently already TWICE rejected by Chicago in his bid to become their manager. 

Would he want to bring his people along if he became manager? If so, could the Cardinals be serious in trying to purge a regime that played in four of the last eight World Series and replace it with a bunch of guys who could teach our young players "The Cubs Way?"

I don't want Cubs taint on the Redbirds.

The only thing worse than looking at Sandberg in a Cardinals uniform would be suffering through the Bobby Valentine era. Hopefully the front office is only doing this to make Jose Oquendo seem like a better choice.
