Chicago Cubs Wisely Fire Dale Sveum, Should Have Sights Set On Joe Girardi
After two season of mediocre baseball, the Chicago Cubs have decided to make a change at the manager position. On Monday, Cubs president of operations Theo Epstein announced that Dale Sveum was relieved of his duties as Cubs manager. For the second time in two years, Chicago is back on the prowl for a new skipper. However, this time the Cubs’ front office is making sure it targets “a proven leader” this time around.
Keep in mind that the Cubs’ manager job was the first such gig for Sveum, who had been a long-time hitting coach prior to his stint in the Windy City.
So, with a better understanding of the whole hiring process, the Cubs begin their search with an Illinois-native in mind. Joe Girardi spent seven years of his MLB playing career with Chicago and is now one of the best managers in the entire game. With that being said, Girardi has been with the New York Yankees since 2008 and his current contract is up at the end of October.
Obviously, Girardi’s connection to Chicago has only added fuel to the rumors that he would like to leave the Yankees for the Cubs. The Windy City might just explode if Girardi decides to takeover the Cubs, but Chicago must have a back-up plan when it comes to this former catcher.
