Cubs/Ricketts Takes Another Step Backwards With Hiring Of Mike Quade....

The Chicago Cubs have their new manager! Let's say hello to Mike Quade.

1985-1986 - Manager Macon Pirates
1989-1990 - Manager Rockford Expos
1991-1992 - Manager Harrisburg Senators (Minor League Manager Of The Year)
1993 - Manager Ottawa Lynx (Minor League Manager Of The Year)
1994-1995 - Manager Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons
1996 - Manager West Michigan Whitecaps
1997 - Manager Huntsville Stars
1998 - Manager Edmonton Trappers
1999 - Manager Vancouver Canadians
2000-2002 - Oakland Athletics First Base Coach
2003-2006 - Manager Iowa Cubs
2006-2010 - Third Base Coach Chicago Cubs/Interim Manager (Aug. 22)

Minor League Record: 1,213 - 1,165 (17 seasons)
Triple A Record: 314-248 (3 seasons)

Among all the candidates that were available, the Chicago Cubs chose to go with Mike Quade and his 24-13 record as a manager of the Chicago Cubs before even talking to eventual free agent manager Joe Girardi.

This is the another step backwards in the one year history of the Ricketts regime.
