Cub Tracks Goes To Plan B

Joe says no. Sort of. - Scott Halleran

In what should be a surprise to virtually no one, Joe Girardi will stay in the Bronx. So it is on to the other choices. Meanwhile, the team's future is showing out in Arizona, Sammy Sosa wants to make peace and a nearly three decade old Cubs team is helping out the Dodgers.

Don't skip through too much today, there are more interesting nuggets than you might think.

From Comcast SportsNet

From Cubs Den

  • The Cubs made some unsurprising moves on their 40-man roster.
  • This was written before the Joe Girardi news broke, but it still holds up. The Cubs will just have to land the next Terry Francona or Joe Maddon.
  • Cub prospects are impressing early in the Arizona Fall League.

From Cubs.com

From ESPNChicago.com

  • More from Arizona, specifically about Kris Bryant. The powerful third baseman is playing well early in the Arizona Fall League.
From the Chicago Tribune
  • With Joe Girardi off the table, the search for a manager will shift gears.
  • Sammy Sosa wants to make peace on the north side of town.

From the Chicago Sun-Times

  • As of 6 p.m. Wednesday, the front page story on the Sun-Times' Cubs' page was that the Yankees might be running out of patience with Joe Girardi. Just sayin'.

From the Daily Herald

  • I don't generally link to columnists, particularly those who aren't very good. But since we're looking for sunshine, Mike Imrem thinks "missing out" on Joe Girardi isn't too painful.
