Cubs fire manager Quade

CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade will not return
next season.
      Theo Epstein, the team's new president of baseball operations,
announced the decision Wednesday after traveling to Florida to
inform Quade.
      Epstein praised Quade, but said the Cubs will benefit from
someone who can come in "with a clean slate and offer new
direction."
      Quade got the job after a 37-game audition at the end of the
2010 season, replacing Lou Piniella on an interim basis. The Cubs
went 24-13 and he was chosen over Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg for
the job last season.
      The Cubs ended the year 71-91, finishing fifth in the NL
Central.
