FoxSports.com first reported that permission was requested. The Cardinals are looking for a replacement for Tony La Russa, who retired after St. Louis won the World Series. The Cubs have a managerial opening, too, after Mike Quade was told yesterday that he would not be brought back. Cubs president Theo Epstein has said previous big-league experience is a prerequisite for the job. Epstein called Sandberg yesterday to tell him that he was not being considered.

One that got away: Much-traveled righthander Ryan Vogelsong, a Downingtown resident and Kutztown University product, is off to a nice start for the defending world champion Giants. And his last five starts have been spectacular: 0.57 earned run average and a .226 opponent's batting average. Yes, this is the same Ryan Vogelsong who went to spring training with the Phillies a year ago and was released from Triple A Lehigh Valley in July. It's hard to blame the Phils. He was 2-5, 4.91 for the IronPigs, shuttling between the bullpen and the rotation.

AT THE TOP of Theo Epstein's to-do list as the new president of baseball operations for the Cubs is to decide who will manage the club next season. Could it be Mike Quade, who has a year left on his contract? Or, after a 71-91 season, someone else? Someone like Cubs Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, who currently is the Phillies' Triple A manager at Lehigh Valley? Yesterday, Epstein was careful in what he said about Sandberg during an interview on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000.

NEW YORK - Maybe a "For Sale" sign should be erected outside Dodger Stadium. Team, ballpark, land, and television rights available. Price: $1 billion and up. The process of finding a new owner for the Los Angeles Dodgers began early Wednesday when current boss Frank McCourt and Major League Baseball released a joint statement saying they had agreed to a court-supervised sale of the once-glamorous and now bankrupt franchise. In the long term, the deal will allow the Dodgers to move ahead and try to get back to baseball's elite.

The field of Phillies pitching candidates, already as crowded as the ballot for an early presidential primary, was increased by one yesterday when righthander Willie Banks was claimed on waivers from the Florida Marlins. The Phillies become the fourth organization to employ the 26-year-old Banks this season. He started the year with the Cubs, was traded to the Dodgers for a minor leaguer in June and claimed on waivers by the Marlins in August. Along the way, he was a combined 2-6 with a 5.66 earned run average.

CHICAGO CUBS manager Mike Quade was fired yesterday in the first major move by Theo Epstein since becoming the team's president of baseball operations. Epstein, who was introduced in his new position last week, said Quade would not return after traveling to Florida to tell him in person. He called Quade an "outstanding baseball guy" but it was time for a change. Quade got the job after a 37-game audition at the end of the 2010 season, replacing Lou Piniella on an interim basis.

So, it seems last year's anger-management classes didn't take as Carlos Zambrano was placed on the disqualified list on Saturday by the Chicago Cubs after his brush-back pitches to the Braves' Chipper Jones that led to Zambrano's ejection from Friday night's game. The volatile righty is out of a paycheck for the next 30 days. Cubs GM Jim Hendry called Zambrano's actions and ejection from Friday night's 10-4 loss to the Braves "intolerable" and said he had "no idea" where Zambrano was on Saturday.

The Cubs made amends, then lost again. Matt Garza came off the disabled list and lasted four innings last night, but couldn't get the Cubs out of their slump. Jonny Gomes hit a three-run homer and drove in four overall, and the Cincinnati Reds pulled away to an 8-2 victory that added to the visiting Cubs' misery. Chicago has lost seven in a row, its deepest slump since it also lost that many last July 27-Aug. 3. "We're just in a tough place right now," Garza said. "There's still 4 months of baseball to play, boys.

The Chicago Cubs finished the 2010 season in need of a future and also in need of a manager. During the course of the long and usually futile history of the franchise, this was not a rare exacta, but it was one that general manager Jim Hendry had to address. Lou Piniella, having assessed the bleak prospects, quit as manager in late August and the Cubs shuffled third-base coach Mike Quade into the manager's office on an interim basis. There was little expectation Quade would keep the job, but, again, the team and its fans don't usually lead the league in expectations.

CHICAGO - Each time a player gets sent to the minor leagues, it's a reminder that professional sports is a bottom-line business. There is no dishonor in being demoted, but it's still a drag to essentially hear, "Son, you're just not good enough. " Domonic Brown knows the feeling well. He made the Turnpike trip to Lehigh Valley frequently before his breakout 2013 season. He said one of the comforts to being sent down in 2011 and 2012 was that manager Ryne Sandberg was always waiting to see him with just the right inspiration.

A couple of weeks from now, the regular season will be over. Some teams will be getting ready to start the playoffs. Others will be looking for new managers. That's just the way it works. Down in Florida, 80-year-old Jack McKeon is expected to return to his role as a consultant. The Astros are in the middle of a protracted sale that could be bad news for Brad Mills. There's no guarantee Davey Johnson will be back in Washington. The Cubs have already fired general manager Jim Hendry and field manager Mike Quade could be next.

CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs offense was too much for the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday. Kosuke Fukudome had three hits and broke the game open with a three-run homer, and Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Pena also went deep as the Cubs battered the Brewers, 12-7. Chicago took three of the four games in the series. "We haven't played great baseball, but there were a lot of plays today," manager Mike Quade said. "There was some execution today that I really liked to see. " Fukudome singled and scored in the first inning, hit an RBI triple and scored in the second, and delivered the big blow in the sixth when he connected off reliever Daniel Herrera to make it a four-run game.
