(Photo: Matt Rappa) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg called into MLB Network's Hot Stove this morning with Matt Vasgersian and Harold Reynolds.

Sandberg Praises Youth, Ready to Rebuild

Seems pretty obvious that Ryne Sandberg is on board with what the Phillies are selling the fan base this offseason: that a rebuild of some sort is forthcoming. It’s been slow to develop, but that could change soon as the Winter Meetings saw their first major move in Jon Lester signing with the Cubs. That could be the first domino to fall. Sandberg told Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia...

Sizing Up Sandberg: Papelbon puts skipper in tough spot

Nice move: Ryne Sandberg has looked a lot like a robot this season. Everything about him, from his cliché, seemingly auto-prepared answers, to his actions in the dugout and even being around him he just seems very robotic. Well on Tuesday, he made a nice gesture that showed a more...

Sizing Up Sandberg: Rosenthal suggests Sandberg may be on hot seat

Ryne Sandberg, by all indications, is Ruben Amaro’s guy. Amaro hand-picked him years ago as one of the game’s more obvious heir apparents to the team’s most successful manager in franchise history, Charlie Manuel. Sandberg always seemed like an odd choice to bring to Philadelphia, as he never really was...

Ryne Sandberg’s Misuse of Phillies Starting Pitchers is Concerning

  Ryne Sandberg deserves a little leeway this season considering the situation he’s in.  The Phillies are in the midst of a steep decline and their over/under win total in Vegas was only 76, their lowest projection since the days of Terry Francona.  Expectations were low for Sandberg in his first big league season in the dugout, but it’s […] The post Ryne Sandberg...

Ryne Sandberg has a lot to learn about player management

If there is one thing over anything else that made Charlie Manuel the winningest manager in Phillies history, it was that he knew how to manage people. He knew which players needed to be coddled, which need a swift kick in the $#@, and which need the manager to just stay away. Whatever the method, it worked for Charlie Manuel. Ryne Sandberg does not seem to have that touch quite yet...

Which MLB manager ate cat food as a kid?

Many kids eat strange things under duress.  Thinking about being dared to eat a bug, perhaps invoking the 5 second rule after 10 seconds for a cookie on a dirty floor, or even those dreaded Brussels sprouts off the lunch plate.  Maybe dog food or cat food on a dare.  Nobody needed to dare a young Ryne Sandberg, who discussed his like for cat food with CBS 3 Philly Sports analyst...
