Sandberg fighting?




Ryne Sandberg, manager of the Peoria Chiefs, will serve the final game of a 3 game suspension tonight, following an incident on Thursday night. The incident started when a member of the Clinton LumberKings dropped down a bunt in the sixth inning to help pad the LumberKings 6-0 lead. After the inning, Sandberg confronted LumberKings manager, upset at the bunt with a 6 run lead. Benches emptied, but the confrontation remained verbal.
There had been a lot of jawing between the teams throughout the night, so I don't know if Sandberg was really upset with the playor he was just trying to protect his players from doing anything stupid that would get them tossed and/or suspended.

Dude-how funny is this cheesedick picture of Sandberg? I love that guy. Here's to hoping that the Cubs are smart enough to hire this guy after Lou hangs it up after this or next year. That will be freaking sweet.

He is obviously fashioning his managerial style after Lou, so it may work.
