RYNE SANDBERG RUMORS

Links of the Day 9/18/14

Hey y’all. I’m in Ohio. They don’t actually say “y’all” in Ohio.  A preview for the Wild season, in emoji. Ryne Sandberg would like to see more power from Ben Revere. How fanciful. Speaking of the Wild, by the way, Josh Harding is broken. SCOREBOARD Football League Championship Derby 3, Blackburn 2 – Derby against derpy. MLB Kansas City 6, Chicago 2 – The Royals...

Tony Gwynn Jr. Gets Emotional Standing Ovation From Padres Fans (Video)

San Diego Padres fans have given their fair share of ovations to a player named Gwynn. On Tuesday night, however, their round of applause took on an extra special meaning. The Philadelphia Phillies traveled to Petco Park for the first time this season on Tuesday, three months to the day after beloved Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn passed away from cancer at the age of 54. The significance...

With Amaro and Sandberg returning, next year looks like this year for Phillies

The past couple weeks have seemed relatively encouraging for the Philadelphia Phillies. This past Sunday, four Phillies pitchers combined to throw a no-hitter against the Braves. On Tuesday, the team’s top prospect, Maikel Franco, made his major league debut. That was followed on Wednesday by Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez pitching in his first big league game. August was...

Sandberg believes he has a handle on Phillies' clubhouse

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg believes he has a good handle on his clubhouse despite the fact that four of his players, by word or action, have been critical or disrespectful of him over the last two weeks. “Yes, yeah,” Sandberg said when posed with that question on Wednesday afternoon. Cole Hamels was the latest to show displeasure with Sandberg. He was visibly perturbed...

Trouble in the Phillies Clubhouse?

You can’t ignore it now. Last night, after the Phillies third straight win to make is five of their last six, starter Cole Hamels made it clear (sort of) he was upset with manager Ryne Sandberg‘s decision to pull him in the eighth inning after Hamels allowed a lead off home run. He dodged questions on whether he was upset with Sandberg. Hamels is now the fourth player to appear...

Sizing Up Sandberg: Rosenthal suggests Sandberg may be on hot seat

Ryne Sandberg, by all indications, is Ruben Amaro’s guy. Amaro hand-picked him years ago as one of the game’s more obvious heir apparents to the team’s most successful manager in franchise history, Charlie Manuel. Sandberg always seemed like an odd choice to bring to Philadelphia, as he never really was...

Ryne Sandberg’s Misuse of Phillies Starting Pitchers is Concerning

  Ryne Sandberg deserves a little leeway this season considering the situation he’s in.  The Phillies are in the midst of a steep decline and their over/under win total in Vegas was only 76, their lowest projection since the days of Terry Francona.  Expectations were low for Sandberg in his first big league season in the dugout, but it’s […] The post Ryne Sandberg...

Ryne Sandberg has a lot to learn about player management

If there is one thing over anything else that made Charlie Manuel the winningest manager in Phillies history, it was that he knew how to manage people. He knew which players needed to be coddled, which need a swift kick in the $#@, and which need the manager to just stay away. Whatever the method, it worked for Charlie Manuel. Ryne Sandberg does not seem to have that touch quite yet...

Which MLB manager ate cat food as a kid?

Many kids eat strange things under duress.  Thinking about being dared to eat a bug, perhaps invoking the 5 second rule after 10 seconds for a cookie on a dirty floor, or even those dreaded Brussels sprouts off the lunch plate.  Maybe dog food or cat food on a dare.  Nobody needed to dare a young Ryne Sandberg, who discussed his like for cat food with CBS 3 Philly Sports analyst...
