Ryno gets called up

Ryno gets called up 


Congrats to Ryno, who's been promoted to the Phillies ML Club as 3B coach and infield instructor.  Many say the Phillies brass really likes him and he's the heir apparent to Manuel in 2014. He's worked hard for many years in the minors, it's nice to see the Phillies value his ability.

Obviously by your tone, you are implying that the Cubs brass did not when nothing can be further from the case. Remember, Theo offered him a job coaching the Boston AAA club when he left the Cubs after the 2009 season. Ryno just decided to coach with the Phillies since he had been a member of that organization before.

Great for Ryno. Really has nothing to do with the Cubs and quite frankly, I am sick of the "Cubbie Connection" being a pre-application for any job with the Cubs organization for some fans.

Sources say he requested to keep his old uniform if he took the position.

No issues with Theo not offering him a job, but I do blame Hendry for not promoting him to the majors as a manager or even a coach after 4 years in the system.

Think he did Ryno a favor considering what shape the team was in. Also would have been impossible for him to be a coach with someone else as the manager. Everyone would be screaming for Ryno to be the manager if the team went 1-2 in it's first three games.

It shouldn't be a disqualification either.  Congrats to Ryno.

It kinda should be. The Cubs have not won a WS since Teddy Roosevelt was president. The Cubs need to bring in new blood as much as possible.

PCE12: This isn't just Cubs fans.  It is a good percentage of the fans of any team.  I'm not a big fan of it, either, but such is life.

Right, so you bring in people from a franchise with a proud winning tradition such as the Brewers.

Sveum's been in other organizations including the Red Sox when they won the title.

Like someone said in another thread, it's typical to bring up personnel you are fimiliar with.
