Hendry welcomes Sandberg back to Iowa. (Sort of)

Apparently Jimbo the Clown has welcomed Ryne Sandberg to remain the Triple-A Iowa manager. But of course, in typical Dungbag fashion, this was news to Ryne Sandburg.

""I was unaware that they wanted me back until I heard it from you," Sandberg said by phone Wednesday from his home in Phoenix. "I guess it is an option. I'm going to take my time and see what is out there.""

Do I even need to comment on this? Doesn't it all just go without saying? Hendry basically bribed Sandberg into managing the Single-A Cubs before the 2007 season. Sandberg called his bluff, took the job, and triumphently worked his way to the 2010 Pacific Coast League AAA manager of the year award. Hendry then proceeded to toy with Mr. Sandberg, all but convincing him the Cub manager job was his. Then, in the blink of an eye, yanks it all out from underneath him, only to leave a deflated backstabbed carcus floating in the water. Apparently, all is well in the world of Jim Hendry though. Because you see, he was gracious enough to reward Sandberg for his years of hard work by letting him know he can waste away back in the minors for as long as he so chooses. Now Jim (dungbag) Hendry of course didn't have the testerone levels in his system to inform Sandberg of this directly. He just leaked it through the media and allowed Sandberg to find out on his own. If I was Ryne Sandberg, I would pull a Tonya Harding on his ass. Just sayin...

  1. I'm offended that you're using my profession to describe Jim Hendry. On the other hand, I'm a Quade fan, so maybe I'll let you call him that.

    Nice blog, Philbin.
