Cards That Never Were #55
The announcement of Ryne Sandberg as the new Phillies (interim) manager was less than an hour ago, and I'm sure that Topps will eventually put one out, but I'll be the one to present it before Topps.
Sandberg started his career with the Phillies, but came to prominence with the Chicago Cubs. He started his coaching career in the Cubs organization, but was shunned away from his dream position as manager of the Chicago Cubs, so he bolted to the Philadelphia minor league system, with the understanding that one day, the top job will be his for the taking. This day has come and I hope it's everything that Ryno expects it to be.
Good luck, Ryno!
