Ryne Sandberg (Hearts) The Twins, And They (Heart) Him, Too

The Chicago Cubs are looking for a manager to guide their team after the departure of Lou Pinella, and it turns out that one of the leading candidates would like to model the team after the Minnesota Twins.

Former Cubs second baseman and Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg had nothing but praise for the Twins and their organization. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire returned the praise.

“It’s a great compliment, not just for our major-league ballclub — that’s for our entire organization,” said manager Ron Gardenhire. “They’ve worked very hard to develop and draft ‘em. We’re not saying it’s always the right way. It’s just the way we’ve been doing it. A lot of us were taught that way. I was taught by Tom Kelly to respect the game and pay attention to the details. We’ve tried to maintain (that philosophy). If people think that’s the right way to do it, I think that’s a great compliment.”
