Would Girardi really take the job? I know he's a Peoria guy and Peoria has been Cub territory since forever. On another note I thought the mantra under Theo was patience. You can wait another 5 or 6 years since you've been waiting for over a hundred.

For a rebuilding team, he clearly didn't do a bad enough job. Heck, he didn't even manage the worst team in Chicago!

Supposedly in the Quick Hits in the Tribune this morning, Girardi downplayed the possibility he'd manage the Cubs and seems more inclined to take a TV job if he didn't come back to New York.

I think Girardi is still highly regarded around the league and probably will be able to be picky with his next job. I could see him going the Terry Francona route, taking a year away from managing, doing some gigs on ESPN, and if something nice opens up in 2015, maybe he'll jump on that.

I just can't see him leaving the circus in the Bronx to join the circus on the North Side unless Theo can convince the Ricketts to open up the pocketbook.

For a team that made no progress in a rebuilding year, it is warranted. The Girardi rumors will fly in soon.

How strange. I mean, he was saddled with a pretty horrible roster. Even Connie Mack had bad seasons. Why would anyone fire a manager who had no ability at all to do much positive with his team?

Just another means of diversion to extend a hucksters honeymoon.

Never had a shot to succeed with them. If I were him, I'd be demanding the last two years of my life back.

Ask, and you shall receive. Before I click off the radio due to B & B coming on, I listen to transition between Mac & Spiegs and them. Bernstein states in his slow, deliberate "grown up voice" that the Cubs. Are. Doing. Everything. The. Right. Way. Ha ha ha ha ! What's that supposed to mean ? How the **** would that ugly little munchkin know what or what they are not doing is the right way or not ? Idiot. The ass licking of Theo by certain media members continues as we approach the 2nd anniversary of his hiring.

He could join the Sox as our hitting coach.
