A Stake Through the Heart?

By now, my century long-depressed baseball brethren on the north side of Chicago are aware that, despite Prince Charming occupying the king's seat at Addison and Clark, Cubbie Land might still get turned on its head.

Oh yes.

Ryne Sandberg.

If Ryne Sandberg becomes the new manager of the St. Louis Cardinals -- THE WORLD CHAMPION ST. LOUIS CARDINALS -- then I think I might just pee on myself.

Oh, the joy... to think, that one of the greatest Cubs in the history of the world -- THE SAME CUB WHO WAS SNUBBED OVER FOR MIKE "LAME DUCK" QUADE -- could sit at the St. Louis helm with those beautiful, beautiful birds on the bat, blazing across his Hall of Fame chest.

Oh sure, Francona would be great. Oquendo too. Hell, even Pettini is good in my book.

But Ryno... oh Ryno... *SALIVATES*

A friend of mine ran into Ryno, his wife and some friends of theirs in Times Square this summer. He said he was so in awe of the Hall of Fame second baseman that he sort of lost track of his thoughts and the forced conversation sorta became... awkward.

I imagine it was the same sort of awkward that would come from him championing the Cardinals to a World Series title in 2012... Hate me! Just don't hate me 'cuz I'm right!
