Darwin Barney had a theory that Ryne Sandberg needed to get away from the Cubs if he wanted a real shot at managing in the big leagues, that it could be the best thing to happen to the next phase
CINCINNATI – Except for the atmosphere – the beer and the sunshine – Cubs fans haven’t been given many reasons to come to Wrigley Field this season and watch this team.
The Cubs sold 20,696 tickets for Wednesday’s matinee featuring the National League’s two worst teams.
The Kane County Cougars roster has a definite Cubs flavor to it right now, and not just because a future major-leaguer might be on the team.
Anyone hoping to hear “Ryne Sandberg Unplugged” or see any “Curb Your Enthusiasm” awkward moments would go home disappointed, maybe because Ryno wound up with a better job.
