KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chicago Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg is being admired for retiring this week and forfeiting a potential $16 million, but California Angels batting coach Rod Carew has difficulty respecting him."He's a guy who had eight good years in the big leagues, he has one bad year, and he walks out on his teammates," Carew said. "If I was on the team, I would have felt like he let me down as one of his teammates."People say he doesn't care about money. How about the guys around him?

Ryne Sandberg has done it again. Cast aside by the Cubs a year ago, he has turned in another highly successful season as a minor league manager. Sandberg guided the Lehigh Valley IronPigsto the Governor's Cup championship series in the International League, completely turning around the culture of a losing situation. One of the minor leagues' worst teams the last three years, the Phillies' Triple-A team won 22 more games in 2011 than '10 and then beat the Pawtucket Red Sox in the first round of the playoffs before the Columbus Clippers eliminated Lehigh Valley Friday night.

Facebook Inc. said yesterday that it hired Google Inc. veteran Sheryl Sandberg to serve as its chief operating officer, a coup in its drive to turn the popular social networking site into a major moneymaker. As Google's vice president for global online sales and operations, Sandberg, 38, ran the Internet giant's lucrative advertising arm, which generates 99 percent of its revenue and employs thousands of people around the world. Facebook has been searching for the best way to manage its rapid growth and generate advertising revenue without alienating its 66 million users.

Hiring signals change Dom Amore Hartford Courant When the Cubs made this choice, the question one must ask is, what are the organization's short- and long-term needs and how are they served? Mike Quade is an outstanding baseball man, an organization man, a longtime minor league manager who has made a reputation of helping to develop young talent. If that's the kind of team the Cubs intend to have, he is the right man for the job. Ryne Sandberg would have been the perfect choice if selling tickets were a priority, but the novelty of having a hometown hero in the dugout fades quickly if he doesn't produce.

Chicago Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg seemed like an unlikely candidate for a case of career burnout, but yesterday he became the Second City's second sports icon to retire prematurely in the past year.NBA megastar Michael Jordan shocked the sports world last fall when he walked away from the Chicago Bulls in the prime of his basketball career. He did it because he was coming off three straight world championships and had little left to achieve after establishing himself as the dominant player of his time.

CHICAGO - -Hall of Famers don't ride buses. They don't carry their own bags and they don't look forward to post-game meals from restaurants like Shoney's and Arby's. They don't do those things often, anyway. But Ryne Sandberg has. He has managed in the Cubs' farm system for three years, including a trip to the championship series of the Double-A Southern League this season, and has positioned himself to become the first Hall of Fame player in more than 30 years to get a chance to manage in the major leagues.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The news had to hit the Orioles front office like a bolt from the bank vault. Chicago Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg agreed to terms Monday on a four-year contract extension worth a minimum of $28.4 million.It takes a fifth-year buyout and some creative mathematics to make him baseball's first $7 million player, but the implications for the Orioles are clear.Cal Ripken is one season away from free-agent eligibility. He is only a few months removed from an MVP season. He might be the best all-round player in the game.

Ryne Sandberg's deadline for a contract extension passed yesterday without a new deal with the Chicago Cubs."You will not hear about my contract again, and I will work even harder toward bringing a World Series to Chicago," Sandberg said.The second baseman, who led the National League with 40 home runs last season, is signed for 1991 at $2.2 million, and the Cubs have a 1992 option at $2.1 million. He had sought a three-year, $15 million extension while the team offered about $1 million less.

As it turns out, the highlight of Ryne Sandberg's marvelous athletic career may have come when he abruptly quit his baseball job.His stated reason for leaving was even more impressive than his many dramatic home runs, stolen bases and incredible fielding plays.He said something that is almost unthinkable for a modern professional athlete: I can't do the job the way I used to and the way I want to, so I'm too proud to take the paycheck.And just like that, at age 34 -- still capable of playing fine baseball -- he walked away from a contract that would have paid him $7 million for at least two more years.

HE DID NOT have a unique batting style or stance that Little Leaguers could mimic, didn't grip a bat in an unorthodox manner the way Ernie Banks did, didn't swing fluidly and gracefully the way Billy Williams did, didn't dig in and rip from the heels as Sammy Sosa does. He was not immortalized in verse the way Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance were, wasn't a screwball like Dizzy Dean, a flake like Rube Waddell, a bigot like Cap Anson, a boozer like Grover Cleveland Alexander or a freak of nature like Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown.

Saddened when a local lumberyard went out of business after more than 100 years, Brian Sandberg, a home improvement contractor in Elkridge, thought of a way that would bring new life to the old place. Sandberg, knowing the piles of left-over scrap lumber would likely end up in a landfill, made an offer to purchase the salvage rights to the lumberyard. With the truckloads of salvaged materials, he constructed a 40-by-28-foot, two-story garage on his property. Using just about every salvaged sliver, Sandberg built the garage of redwood, cedar, oak and knotty pine.
