What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
per ESPN. He has accepted the managerial job for the Pirates.
I wanted to get Ryne Sandberg in here as a hitting coach... He didn't want to return to AAA Iowa for the Cubs and said he was ready to move onto the big leagues (and Quade wasn't going to put him on the Cubs staff)... His career numbers are great, he's a Hall of Famer, he won a managerial award in the minors and he's a great guy -- why not let him be a part of your big league staff?
But apparently, he's decided the AAA managerial job for Philadelphia sounded more appealing than the Cubs AAA job (I think the Cubs hurt his feelings)... and I guess he didn't get any other big league offers? Maybe one day he'll be taking over for Charlie Manuel?
With that being said... I've heard that '09 candidate Thad Bosley is a possibility -- or perhaps Rusty Greer?
