Sandberg on Double-A Prospects

SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. – Ryne Sandberg's first season as the Tennessee Smokies' manager hasn't exactly been a walk in the park. The Smokies (43-50) have had a season full of ups and downs that has them sitting in the middle of the Southern League North Division standings.

"We've had a couple stretches of hot and cold," Sandberg said of the season. "A big point in the first half was a stretch of going 0-12 against the top three teams in the league.
