OUT: Joe Girardi

Lost out to Piniella for 2007 opening, but went on to win a world championship with the 2009 New York Yankees. The former Cubs catcher has always said he wanted to manage the Cubs someday, but it's hard to imagine him leaving the Yankees after 2010. UPDATE: On Oct. 19, the Cubs announced that Mike Quade had been given a two-year deal.Jim McIsaac, Getty Images
