Former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein today fired former Red Sox coach Dale Sveum from his position as manager of the Chicago Cubs. Apparently, the Cubs want a clean managerial slate to help celebrate next year's 100th Anniversary of Wrigley Field (we know how impactful those celebrations are on team performance, don't we?). Sveum was really in a no-win position—skippering a low-talent team of lovable losers for two seasons. His combined record over that span was a dismal 127-197. Said Epstein, "We will begin our search immediately." Svuem was the Red Sox third base coach in 2004-5. You can read the Cubs official statement HERE.
