MLB Rumors: Is Ryne Sandberg A Favorite For the Rockies Job?

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Colorado Rockies cannot get this move wrong. MLB Rumors are starting to fly on who the Rockies apparently are going to interview for the managerial job, and frankly there should be one name at the top. Ryne Sandberg is not only ready to manage, he’s going to do a great job wherever he goes. Once upon a time, I was hoping the Chicago Cubs were going to lock up their hall of fame second basemen but since they were kind of dumb and went with ugh Mike Quade- I want Ryno to get his shot with an organization that seems ready to win.

The Colorado Rockies were a travesty this year. I was a little surprised by how they reacted under Jim Tracy, and it’s unfortunate a message apparently wasn’t listened too. The good thing about Ryno? He’s got the pedigree where you have to listen. If you ask any Cubs youngster, they will tell you how much they loved playing under the hall of famer. Ryno developed them, taught them how to play the game the right way. Ryno taught them how to be professionals. How to deal with the lows and highs of being a professional baseball player. What else can you ask for in a manager.

The knock on Ryno? He’s quiet. Well- not so much the case anymore and until he gets that chance? I fear he’ll always have that reputation. I hope the Rockies get smart about this because this should be a pretty easy decision. Ryno can and would turn it around, if they were smart and hired him of course.
