Cubbies Crib: Morning Marquee 10/10


The Cubs manager search continues today after Joe Girardi signed a four-year deal with the New York Yankees on Wednesday. Former managers Manny Acta and A.J. Hinch look to be the top candidates for the job now with former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen stating he wants the job. Could Guillen man the home dugout at Wrigely Field next season? The Cubs top prospects are glad to be back on the field in the Arizona Fall League and are shining.

The hated St. Louis Cardinals won yet another Game 5 off third baseman David Freese’s bat last night and advanced to the NLCS to face the Los Angeles Dodgers. Rookie Sonnie Gray will take the mound for the Oakland A’s over veteran Roberto Colon in Game 5 of the ALDS against Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers in Oakland.
