Yup, they'll interview him and have a coach by the weekend. Renteria or Lovullo.

Yeah, that's a major concern for me then. I'm still skeptical on Ricketts.

Thinking I might try to go to Northwestern's season opener this Saturday. Huge college hoops fan and this would only be the second D-I team I've seen live in their own arena.

Regardless, have all the games that don't interfere with televised Hawks and Illini games already highlighted , so definitely going to at least a handful even if I decide to stay home this weekend and watch the Hawks down in Dallas instead.

Sure hard not to feel confident about Alexander to the Illini.

Aren't they not allowed to hire anybody from the BoSox?

The agreement was for 3 years but Lovullo wasn't part of the Red Sox organization at the time.

Even with the agreement, it's a ****** thing to do to one of your assistant coaches by Boston

PK not coming back is not a Yay thing

Sure he is on decline but he is still far more useful then that waste of money/roster spot Dunn

He still might. It just means that he wasn't offered a 1 year $14.1 million contract.

Exactly. Wouldn't be completely against him coming back if he wants to make $5-7M.

It appears #Cubs are looking closely at Rick Renteria as the managerial search hits final stages. http://cbsprt.co/18WlDSJ

I just checked up on it, and it appears that the Wolves are experiencing one heck of a dip in their attendance so far this year. I was very surprised at how low the attendance was for a Friday night game versus Rockford I attended a couple weeks back, but figured it was an odd exception. Answering a minor league question on the BoH reminded me of it though, so I snooped around on the AHL website. Here's the average attendance the past few seasons....

2005-06: 7,932, 4th in the AHL
2006-07: 7,830, 3rd in the AHL
2007-08: 7,474, 4th in the AHL
2008-09: 7,448, 3rd in the AHL
2009-10: 7,963, 3rd in the AHL
2010-11: 7,453, 3rd in the AHL
2011-12: 7,909, 2nd in the AHL
2012-13: 8,230, 2nd in the AHL
2013-14: 4,813, 13th in the AHL
http://theahl.com/stats/schedule.php...e&season_id=43

Now, granted, it's only been five games so far, versus 40 or 38 for the other seasons, but that's one heck of a significant drop for the Wolves in the first eighth of the season.

They always draw flies early on. I was at the 2nd game last season, a Sunday afternoon vs Rockford, and their couldn't have been more than 2000 there. Way too early for this to even be a talking point.

Hope that pattern holds true, then.

Yeah, saw the rumblings on Twitter. Rick Renteria seems to be the front runner.

I'd love to see their attendance during football season vs after football season. Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons in October and November just aren't gonna draw.

Does this include Comcast Sports Chicago or is it just WGN? Historically this is huge. They used to show 150 games a year before lights. This kind of makes me sad.

Sounds like we're one step closer to the long-fabled Chicago Cubs Channel.

Here's hoping that the CCC isn't too expensive of a bump to cable prices...
