"I find your lack of vision disturbing..."
Darth Quade will continue for at least two years as the Emperor and Dark Lord of the Cubs. Rather than sign Ryno or wait to take a stab at getting Girardi, the Chicago Cubs shall embrace the Dark Side and march forward to conquer the rest of the MLB universe beyond Wrigley Field. This news also means that Girardi will almost assuredly remain in New York, while Ryno may end up leaving the Iowa Cubs and going to one of the other MLB teams who remain manager-less. Some sources have suggested that Sandberg may manage in Canada, with the Blue Jays, but the Cubs would prefer to keep him in Iowa so he may learn the ways of the North Side under Darth Quade, perhaps to manage later on.
Anyhow, while Ryno still has much to learn of the North Side of the Force, Mike Quade will command the Cubs until 2012.
