Pat Listach
Pat Listach has popped up on some lists of candidates for the Cubs' managerial job, and that's fine with him.

"I would definitely like the job," Listach, currently third-base coach for the Nationals, told MLB.com.   "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, 42, managed in the minor leagues for the Cubs for four years, and was Pacific Coast League Manager of the Year after leading Triple-A Iowa to an 83-59 mark. He was hired by the Nationals on a recommendation from Lou Piniella, who retired as Cubs manager on Sunday.

Listach, the 1992 National League Rookie of the Year, said he knows there will be a lot of interest in the Cubs job. The smart money is still on Ryne Sandberg, and other names mentioned include Fredi Gonzalez, Bob Brenly and interim manager Mike Quade.
