On today's off day, I thought I'd start out with a quick post which is mostly a poll. I asked you this question in July, after Lou Piniella announced his retirement, but it deserves asking again. Some circumstances have changed since then, with Mike Quade in the mix since he's serving as manager now.
This poll assumes that Joe Girardi will NOT be available. My guess is that if I put Girardi in this poll, he would win it by an overwhelming margin. He'd be my first choice; assuming he's unavailable, my choice, as most of you know, is Ryne Sandberg.
So, vote in the poll, which is in alphabetical order and now includes Quade -- and doesn't include Alan Trammell, who was in the original poll but has been ruled out as a possible Cubs manager next year.
