CHICAGO -- For the Chicago Cubs, two things never change. Nostalgia sells and they will always break your heart. That's why TV commercials heralded the return of Ryne Sandberg, Cubs Hall of Famer turned interim Phillies manager, before this weekend series, after two ownership groups and two front offices squashed his dream of managing the Cubs. Hey, they never said he couldn't visit. The marketing didn't work. The crowd was loud, but sparse when Sandberg was announced before the game.

The Cubs hero and Phillies interim manager insists there are no hard feelings and no awkward energy surrounding his return. Nostalgia is unavoidable.
NEW YORK — It just looked so odd. And, yes, to this nostalgia-laden visitor’s eyes, so sad, so plaintive. There, leaning against the railing in the visitors’ dugout at Citi Field on this sunny Thursday, stands Ryne Sandberg, wearing a gray uniform with red trim, a red cap perched on his head. He looks tan and fit, which he is. (He hits fungos and throws batting practice before each game.) The famous No. 23 is on his back, also in red. Red, mind you. Not Cubbie...

Cubs radio analyst Keith Moreland was thrilled with the news Friday that Cubs Hall of Fame second baseman Ryne Sandberg was named interim manager of the Phillies to replace Charlie Manuel .
The naming of Ryne Sandberg as interim manager of the Philadelphia Phillies was not much of a surprise to some of the Chicago Cub players he managed in the minor leagues. Sandberg spent five years in the Cubs system, managing at all levels before moving to the Philadelphia organization in 2011. The only area lacking on his resume was big league coaching experience. Sandberg coached third base for Charlie Manuel for the first 119 games in 2013 before replacing the veteran manager on Friday.
Cubs Hall of Famer gets chance to manage, but it's tough task succeeding ManuelRyne Sandberg always said he just wanted a chance to manage a big league club. He has that now, even if it isn't with the one team he most wanted to manage.
CHICAGO -- I have known Ryne Sandberg since that September day in 1981 when he got his first and only hit as a Philadelphia Phillie. Sandberg, who had just turned 22, singled against Cubs starter Mike Krukow at Wrigley Field. Sandberg was traded that offseason in one of the best and most storied deals in Cubs history. The Phillies got a solid shortstop in Ivan De Jesus and in return they sent Larry Bowa and Sandberg, a young unproven infielder. De Jesus helped Philadelphia win a National League championship in 1983, and Sandberg became an iconic Cub and was inducted into the Baseball Hall...
First off, congrats to Cubs Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg for being named interim manager of the Phillies, who today fired Charlie Manuel after a 4-19 stretch. When the Cubs named Mike Quade manager late in the 2010 season, I had a chance to go out to Des Moines and visit with Sandberg for a couple of days when he was managing the Cubs’ Class AAA Iowa team, and he could not have been more gracious. Perhaps we’ll get a chance to visit with Darwin Barney of Jeff Samardzija about Ryno after today’s game against the Cardinals. Both played for Sandberg at Iowa. The Phillies visit Wrigley Field...
