Many Cubs fans wanted to see the return of a former fan favorite to the dugout.
They may get one, it just won’t be Ryne Sandberg.
I mentioned the other day that regardless of the Cubs managerial situation, they will be looking to make a change in the coaching staff.
Before any of the Dale Sveum hot-seat talk began, I was informed there were internal discussions within the Cubs organization about replacing hitting coach James Rowson. Sources say Rowson is a goner regardless of the manager.
There is a big push from some to promote current Boise hitting coach and former Cubs star Bill Buckner. However, some feel Buckner is too valuable of a teacher at the lower levels.
I’m sure the manager situation will get handled first, but it’s worth keeping our eyes on.
