Cubbies Crib: Morning Marquee 11/06


The Chicago Cubs are in a holding pattern while they wait for the Boston Red Sox to allow them to interview their bench coach Torey Lovullo. The Seattle Mariners hired Detroit Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon to be their new manager leaving the Cubs job the lone opening. In the Arizona Fall League, the newly designed replay system debuted with four review calls. The longest review took a minute and a half while the shortest only lasting 46 seconds.
