07:19 AM ET 09.20 | Was Larry Bowa's being back in Philly a sign of things to come? It's only a matter of time before Ryne Sandberg, long the heir apparent to [Charlie Manuel], sheds the interim label and is officially named Phillies manager. Once Sandberg is in the saddle, he will need to build a coaching staff. You know where we're going with this. Bowa was a star player, a World Series-winning player, a coach and manager with the club. After all these years, he remains a Phillie at heart. And he has a close relationship with Sandberg, having mentored him when they were teammates in the Chicago Cubs' infield. Could Bowa, still spry with his 68th birthday approaching in December, end up on Sandberg's staff? Nothing is guaranteed. But it's possible. It has been talked about in the organization.

Sandberg's probably a little too nice, he could use Bowa like a pitbull.

Please also add Bobby V to the mix. It would be MMA in the Phils dugout.

Sandberg was also a Philly!
Phils gave him up for DeJesus (and also chipped in Bowa).

Surely one of the top 10 worst trades in history...Bowa after the trade was probably worth more than DeJesus, not even thinking of the HOFer Ryno being tossed in.
