Theo Epstein Lowers The Boom On Dale Sveum

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.
