    It's the manager, within any franchise run by adults.

    Lets the Cubs out.

    I disagree. McClendon simply wasn't the right fit in Pittsburgh from the start.

    He preferred vets, but didn't go to the lengths Baker did -- see Perez, Neifi -- to avoid playing the kids. Then again, when you're tossed into a situation like the Pirates, there's no room for error. You have to play the right guys just to have a chance.

    McClendon seemed passionate about his job, and for all their flaws, his teams never packed it in. Given some talent and the Tribune's fat wallet, he's not a bad fallback option.
