Cubbies Crib: Morning Marquee 10/22


Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland resigned Monday morning due to his belief the team needs a more youthful manager. Leyland stated in his press conference he will remain with the team in a front office role. There are now five teams with manager vacancies: the Cubs, Mariners, Reds, Nationals, and Tigers, and two of those teams were in the postseason in 2013. Reports indicate the Reds have found their new manager within their own organization, pitching coach Bryan Price. The Nationals interviewed their third base coach Trent Jewett although there are no reports of a deal in the works in D.C.
