The Philadelphia Phillies hired Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg as their manager on Friday after firing Charlie Manuel. Manuel, 69, had managed the Phillies since 2005, a run that included five consecutive National League East championships and a World Series title in 2008. The only managers who have served their current teams longer than Manuel are Mike Scioscia of the Angels and Ron Gardenhire of the Minnesota Twins, neither of whom is assured of returning next season. Manuel, who also managed the Cleveland Indians from 2000 to 2002, has exactly 1,000 victories as a major league manager.

The Oakland Athletics are carrying 31 players on their roster, including only nine who played for them in 2011. Shortstop Cliff Pennington and pitchers Brett Anderson and Jerry Blevins are the only ones around from 2009. :: Yes, Miguel Cabrera has a real shot to win the Triple Crown, but his biggest hurdle is catching Josh Hamilton and Adam Dunn for the home run lead. His 10 career home runs at U.S. Cellular Field are his second most away from home, and he needs only two in the four games this week to surpass his total at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

Get a life, Mike Downey. You want us to feel sorry for Ryne Sandberg for getting $7.1 million in 1992 and he might get zero dollars in 1997 or 1998? Let me see. If I get my math right and he makes $7.1 million in 1992 and gets nothing from 1993-98, that makes him averaging more than $1 million a year. Holy cow, I do feel sorry for him. I never knew he would have it so bad. HARRY L. PELL Laguna Hills

Ryne Sandberg owns an MVP trophy, nine Gold Gloves and a plaque in Cooperstown. All those honors add up to a real prize these days: a front-row seat on a bus bouncing around the minor leagues. After a Hall of Fame career as a Cubs second baseman, Sandberg is a rookie again. He's taking a try at managing, guiding Chicago's Class-A Midwest League affiliate in Peoria, about 2 1/2 hours southwest of Wrigley Field. "I tell these guys all the time that we're all kind of in the same boat.

Ryne Sandberg could have played just about anywhere on a baseball diamond. He wound up in the right spot and is going into the Hall of Fame on Sunday because he played second base, not third or the outfield. Sandberg played mostly shortstop in the minor leagues. Philadelphia traded him to the Chicago Cubs in part because he was stuck behind veterans such as Mike Schmidt and Manny Trillo.

Holy cow! You could almost hear late Cubs announcer Harry Caray shouting his familiar refrain Monday as former Chicago star Ryne Sandberg finally set foot inside the Baseball Hall of Fame for his first tour of the sport's Mecca. "Everything is just amazing," said Sandberg, who will be inducted with Wade Boggs on July 31. "To be here and feel a part of it is still at the overwhelming stage, and that might always be the case." Sandberg couldn't hide his elation -- he never stopped smiling.

"I was somewhat relieved, somewhat sad," said Sandberg, who began his major league career in 1981 with Philadelphia and joined the Cubs in 1982. "It's hard to pinpoint my emotions. I couldn't ask for anything more."

"Well," Ryne Sandberg said with something of a straight face, "I was definitely looking to hit a home run in that situation."

Ryne Sandberg retired again Sunday, this time for good, after going zero for two in his final game as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Cardinals, 2-1, at St. Louis. The second baseman, who retired for the first time in June 1994 and sat out all of 1995, said he won't be tempted to come back next year when spring training rolls around. "It'll hit me in December or January, but I won't be back," Sandberg said. "I have other things to do."
