One ex-Cub may be the talk of the town right now, but when playoff baseball starts Tuesday night, Joe Girardi will have no impact on what happens in October.
ST. LOUIS — At the end of a reality-check season, Starlin Castro stood in front of his locker and motioned at Anthony Rizzo as he walked across the room.
"What does a Cubs fan do after his team wins the World Series?"
"He turns off his PlayStation 3."
This could get messy for the Cubs. Theo Epstein’s front office is still trying to figure out if they should fire Dale Sveum and pursue Joe Girardi or another free-agent manager.
Dale Sveum tipped his cap and waved it above his bald head late Wednesday afternoon, saying goodbye to the fans at Wrigley Field, maybe for the last time.
