It's nice to be important...

Ryne Sandberg to join the Cubs as team ambassador, according to MLB.com.

I think this is perfect. Lets Sandberg be a part of the organization without sabotaging the team.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist.

That's one hell of a fall in the coaching world. Impressive really.

They are probably paying him well to sign autographs, take photos, and be a one on one instructor (which he always had high marks for doing). It will be great for old guys like me, who grew up as Sandberg as their favorite player, to take in games with their kids and share stories, etc etc etc (insert martinez / palmeiro here).

Great move.

one is a creepy looking vampiric ego maniac and the other is the greatest homerun hitter in Chicago Cubs history.
