Nats’ third base coach Pat Listach would like to manage Cubs
“I would definitely like the job,” Listach said. “But I have a job to do here in Washington. If that job is available, it would be a dream come true. When you bring a championship to that city and that team, it’s a big deal.”
“It’s one of the elite jobs in baseball. When you start talking about the Cubs, Yankees, Red Sox and Dodgers, that’s the elite of the elite. Just to be considered is an honor. It makes me feel good as a person that I’ve done the right things in this game that people would consider me.”
Listach has a very impressive resume, but he’ll have to beat out interim manager Mike Quade, Fredi Gonzalez, Ryne Sandberg and Bob Brenly, among others, for the post. It won’t be easy. You don’t need me to tell you that the Cubs haven’t won a World Series since 1908. Whoever can break that streak will be a hero in the city forever, so there’s endless appeal to the gig.
