Mike Quade Mike Quade hasn't interviewed for the Cubs' managing position yet and doesn't know when that interview will take place.

Quade was given the interim position over bench coach Allan Trammell because he was considered a candidate for the full-time position and he's certainly done nothing to disappoint since.

General manager Jim Hendry is keeping his mouth shut about the selection process -- not just to the press apparently, but to Quade, as well.

"I really am in day-to-day mode," Quade told the Chicago Tribune 's Paul Sullivan . "I'll manage here these three days and finish up. I'm in no worry to leave Chicago. I do want to catch a fish, but I'll be there several days. I've talked so much about the process, that process will take care of itself, too. I'm flexible as can be.

"When that conversation happens, if anyone needs me, I'm always available, whether I'm in Florida or whether I'm in Chicago."

Quade was considered a longshot when he took over the club. After leading the team to a 22-12 recur since taking over, he's become a favorite, along with Cubs legend Ryne Sanberg.

The Cubs have said they'd like a manager in place before the organizational meetings begin the first week of November.
