When Ryne Sandberg called back Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein after being informed he was not a candidate for the managerial vacancy in Chicago, Epstein was pleased with how gracefully Sandberg handled the situation.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ryne Sandberg might be in Wrigley Field again next season, but it might be in the visitors’ dugout. Perhaps with the reigning world champion and division rival St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs Hall of Famer, who managed in the Cubs’ farm system for four seasons before being turned away for the major-league manager’s job last season, was turned away again...
The St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox are all searching for a new manager. In three very different situations, three of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball history will be looking for a new leader to manage the clubhouse.

And it wouldn't surprise me if Theo hires Tito for the Cubs.

2011 Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade will not return to the team next season.

As they are both in the middle of a managerial search -- and, starting at 12:01 a.m. ET Thursday, free agency -- the Red Sox and Cubs have received an extension to work out compensation for Theo Epstein's departure from Boston to Chicago.
CHICAGO - Maybe we should take baseball chief Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer at their word. Maybe...

Theo Epstein, the team's new president of baseball operations, announced the decision Wednesday after traveling to Florida to inform Quade.
Epstein praised Quade, but said the Cubs will benefit from someone who can come in ''with a clean slate and offer new direction.''
Quade got the job after a 37...
