In his blog today, in response to another poster's comment, he says that he believes Quade has the inside track. His exact comment today is below. I believe he's got the inside track. The Cubs did not call him the "interim" manager. (Alas, all managerial jobs are interim, aren't they?) He's done a nice job. He's not afraid to follow his convictions. He's good with the media (believe it or not, clubs ask questions about media-relations in job interviews for prospective managers). Why not?
