9/21 Hendry talks to Sandberg
Cubs GM Jim Hendry was in Arizona on Tuesday to interview Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, who
wrapped up his fourth year as a Minor League manager. Sandberg won Pacific Coast League manager of the year honors this year as the Triple-A Iowa Cubs finished tied for first with
an 82-62 record. Sandberg has made it clear he’s interested in the Cubs job.
Hendry has talked to former Indians manager Eric Wedge and also was expected to interview former D-backs manager Bob Melvin. Since Mike Quade took over the Cubs on Aug. 23, the team has gone 17-7 entering Tuesday’s game against the Giants. Quade also is a candidate for the job.
