Chicago Cubs Hire Mike Quade: 10 Reasons He’s a Better Hire than Ryne Sandberg

The Chicago Cubs have hired Mike Quade as permanent manager for 2011 and beyond, and have officially removed his interim tag from 2010.

He did a fantastic job in his short time as skipper in Chicago, and deserved this opportunity after a long career in the minors.

Did he deserve the spot over Cubs hero and fan favorite Ryne Sandberg, however? Many fans may disagree, much like the dispute in New York over Don Mattingly's prospects of managing before Joe Girardi's eventual hire.

I am going to explain 10 reasons why Mike Quade was the right choice over Ryne, and feel free to express your opinions in the comment thread. Here we go.
