The Cubs are parting ways with manager Dale Sveum. Chicago has dismissed Sveum after two seasons at the helm. The Cubs finished last in the NL Central with a 66-and-96 record this season. It was a five-game improvement from Sveum's first season when the club went 61-and-101.
Following yesterday's firing of Dale Sveum, the Cubs are in search of a new manager. Rumors have started to circulate about the future of Joe Girardi as Yankees manager. Girardi says he's unsure if he will return to New York next season. He previously had played down any speculation of returning to his hometown of Chicago to manage the Cubs.
