Probably I'm the last guy to write about this, but if you get a chance go listen to Mully and Hanley talk to Peter Gammons about Joe Girardi managing the Cubs. It's about 8 minutes into the interview (you can use that orange slider bar to skip ahead if you want).
Peter Gammons isn't just some dude talkin' rumors.
He hints that there's "something going on in New York".
He feels there's a distinct possibility the Yankees will get knocked out of the playoffs (by the Twins), which will be Jim Hendry's opportunity of course.
And at the end he says, "If it comes down to money, the Cubs will beat the Yankees on paying the manager."
I find that last part very interesting.
And as of right now, NOBODY'S PICKED JOE IN THE PAINTING CONTEST (see below).
Okay I gotta run.
It's my last visit to Wrigley til next April, which will seem like about 4 or 5 years from now especially if the Bears lose to the Packers badly.
Looks a tad chilly out, but it's sunny at least.
I'll tell you about it tomorrow.
DON'T FORGET TO ENTER TO WIN AN ORIGINAL CUBBY BLUE PAINTING.
