07:19 AM ET 10.03 | These days, it's good to be Joe Girardi, who reportedly has two very wealthy baseball clubs interested in his services. While reports surfaced Wednesday that ownership in Chicago believes the Yankee skipper is someone who could inject life and excitement into the moribund Cubs franchise and the disenchanted Wrigley faithful, a source said the Yankees aren't willing to even give them a chance to lure Girardi from them. Chicago, which fired manager Dale Sveum on Monday, is believed to be very interested in Girardi, according to multiple sources. The Cubs are in the midst of a rebuilding process, but according to a source, the club believes hiring a big-name manager could help ease the minds of frustrated fans while also showing potential free agents that they're serious about contending in the near future.

Well, I think it kind of depends on what Joe wants...surely the Cubs would also pay him well, and maybe he has a fondness for Chicago (he was a Cubbie and played at Northwestern) and wants to be closer to whatever family he has left in Peoria (also Thome's hometown).

As am I. I wanted the Indians to face the Sox. Tito bringing his new team to face his old team would be a great storyline. The Rays, and their crappy excuse of a ballpark, are not as interesting.
Plus I am usually in a foul mood.

I don't like it because I think the Rays are more dangerous opponents than either the Indians or Rangers, but at least their rotation should be messed up going into the ALDS.

How come I didn't know that Casey Kasem was the voice of Shaggy?

A ten game win streak just so they can be shut out at home. Not good

I put out a contract to rub that **** out in '97

I wonder if Mesa ever killed Omar Vizquel for writing about what a loser he was...haven't seen Omar around lately.

I don't see a big problem with the guys wearing the red facepaint to the game...they're so bright red that it doesn't strike me that they're trying to look like real people. I guess some folks are getting all hot and bothered like they were made up for a minstrel show, seems overblown to me.
