Spring Training preview for Philadelphia Phillies tickets

Ryne Sandberg begins his second season managing the Philadelphia Phillies with little hopes of success heading into the season. After a disappointing 2013, the Phillies tried to “reload” rather than “rebuild” and misfired. After finishing the season with a 73-89 record, the team traded long time shortstop Jimmy Rollins, which made it clear that the Phillies are in a rebuilding...

Red Alert: Is Sandberg Right for the Phillies?

While trade-related articles are dominating the local headlines, the Philadelphia Phillies enter the second campaign of manager Ryne Sandberg. But after they dealt away starters in right field, at shortstop, and a left-handed reliever, will the front office take a weaker 25-man roster into consideration regarding number 23? And what kind of skipper is the Hall of Famer? If the...

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...
