Chicago Cubs News: Astros win 1st World Series, Sandberg’s legend
The Chicago Cubs’ Ryne Sandberg has the perfect job with the team, which is why you won’t hear his name connected to the bench coach position. And congratulations to the Houston Astros on their 1st World Series.
After the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years, it was disappointing to see them eliminated this year. And deep down, I’m petty. So I didn’t want to see the Los Angeles Dodgers win it. Well, wish granted as the Houston Astros captured their first World Series in their history. So we want to wish them and Climbing Tal’s Hill a big congratulation as they now have some celebrating to do.
The official start of the offseason is coming up, and the Cubs will have some hard work ahead of them. Starting pitching will be one of the things at the top of the list. And this isn’t a want as much as it’s born out of necessity. Jon Lackey and Jake Arrieta are likely to leave, which leaves a big hole in the rotation. With Jim Hickey coming over from Tampa Bay, are the chances that Alex Cobb could follow likely?
The Cubs’ Ryne Sandberg is a legend in this town. And that’s why for many years, many believed that he could be the manager of the Cubs. Things didn’t work out that way, and eventually, he took the job in Philadelphia. That didn’t work out so well for Ryno. But now he’s back with Chicago as an ambassador to the team. Will the Cubs consider him for the bench coach job? Highly unlikely, and we’re just fine with that.
