10:52 AM ET 10.05 | If not Joe Girardi, then what? Think Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., and you have what might be a rough prototype for the Cubs' backup plan if they don't nab the Yankees' free-agent manager, who has been a long-term target of Cubs ownership for years. Alomar, former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch and former Indians and Nationals manager Manny Acta are among the potential candidates the Cubs will seek if the Great Girardi Deliberation now underway in New York goes against them, sources say.

No. Go all in, give Joe an offer he just cannot refuse. Good for both teams.

Ask Dusty Baker if his time in Chicago helped his career.

If Giradi is a no go, they might as well pursue a managerial candidate that hasn't been recycled over and over again. Go with Sandy Alomar Jr. or maybe see if A's pitching coach Curt Young is interested. The Manny Acta's of the world are so overused, give someone new an opportunity to lose 100+ games, it's not fair to let all those losses go to waste.

Ask him if his time with the Reds has helped him. Dusty has been a playoff disaster everywhere he has been

Actually, Giradi was plan C. Laughingly. Dale Sveum was plan A. Theo should have given Ryno the chance. I don't think Castro and Rizzo would not have fared so poorly playing for Sandberg. who at least did well with young players. Theo, the boy blunder, has been making a lot of big mistakes: the wrong manager, ill-advised long term contracts for Castro and Rizzo, Ian Stewart, and $52 million for Edwin "Bad Inning" Jackson! Guffaw!

Theo has a track record in Boston. He started there with a lot more talent, on the ML team and in the high minors.
Critiquing him for his work in two years at the Cubs is way premature; he's stocking draft picks, trade bait, and some Cap space.
Wait a couple more years before judging his work in Chicago.
