Mike Quade is (24-12) since taking over, including Saturday’s 8-3 win against Houston.
He’s won 8 of 12 series, gone (17-4) on the road and guided the Cubs to 15 wins in its last 21 games.
Is there anything more Quade could have done to prove his worth this season?
Is the public support of team leader Ryan Dempster not enough to bring Quade back for another go-round?
Is Ryno or Girardi that better of an option than Quade?
If, in fact, Quade doesn’t get the gig, it gives credibility to my projection that Quade never had a chance to begin with.
But as the season comes to a close Sunday, there’s no good reason why Quade shouldn’t be the Cubs next skipper.
