Bruce Levine's Chat: 10/12...

Here's a recap of Bruce Levine's chat....

1) The manager process could be entering the final process and a manager could be named soon. The 3 candidates are Mike Quade, Ryne Sandberg and Eric Wedge.

2) He mentioned 3 weeks ago that Olando Hudson will be the Cubs 2B come next season, but now he says it looks like they will keep 2B alone.

3) The Cubs never interviewed Alan Trammell because they don't look at him as a good manger. Also, it looks like Trammell will have to find a job elsewhere.

4) He thinks Archer needs more time in the minors and if he pitches good, he would not be surprise to see him as a mid-season call-up.

5) He says the Cubs need a leadoff man, but has not heard what they are going to do at that position.

6) He thinks Derrek Lee's career could be over because of past injuries. That would suck.

7) He said "I'm sure Jacoby Ellisbury would be a guy the Cubs would like to have".

8) Renovations for Wrigley in 2014 seem to be on a hold. It still will get done but the time frame in unknown now.

9) No one knows when Vitters will be ready and even at 3B. He could be a 1B if and when he hits the majors. He will be playing 1B in the AFL.

10) He said Kerry Wood will always be welcomed back to Chicago, but he does not see the Yankees not offering him a new contract.

That was the latest from Bruce Levine.
