On Wednesday, the St. Louis Cardinals interviewed Ryne Sandberg for their vacant managerial position, and Sandberg felt good about the process afterwords. In a telephone interview with The Associated Press following his sit down with Cardinals brass, Sandberg seemed pleased even though the interview lasted less than two hours. Here is what Sandberg had to say:
It was a comfortable conversation. From my standpoint, it went about as well as it could have gone...It was cool that the Cardinals thoughts to put me on their list and wanted to talk to me, with my history as a rival player. They agreed that in some ways that I would know the St. Louis Cardinals franchise, history and tradition as much as anyone else. I lived it on the field against them for 16 seasons.
Sandberg put together a Hall of Fame career as a player with the rival Chicago Cubs, and is one of the few candidates without any direct ties to the Cardinals organization.
