Cubs In Haiku: Sandberg To Succeed Piniella

The Iowa Cubs
Just got a new manager
His name is Ryno

Number Twenty-Three
One step closer to Wrigley
After Lou retires

The Cubs announced Monday  that Hall of Fame second baseman Ryne Sandberg has been promoted from managing the Double-A Tennesee Smokies to the same job with the Triple-A Iowa Cubs.   It's obvious now that whenever Piniella retires - be it after the 2010 season or a year or two later - the next manager of the Chicago Cubs will be the greatest second baseman ever to wear Cubby Blue.
