Joe Girardi Will Not Be Managing The Chicago Cubs In 2011

Joe Girardi will not be managing the Chicago Cubs next season. That is because the Cubs announced today that Mike Quade will be.

Quade was named interim skipper when Lou Piniella retired late in the season.

There had been much speculation that Girardi, a Chicago native and former Cubs’ player whose contract is up after this season, would entertain a move to Chicago.

No chance of that now. I have no idea if Quade’s hiring is good for the Cubs. I do know, however, that is is good for the Yankees.
