Sveum is new Cubs manager

Quote:
MILWAUKEE -- Dale Sveum has accepted an offer to be the next manager of the Chicago Cubs.


Sveum, previously the Milwaukee Brewers' hitting coach, will be officially introduced on Friday morning at Wrigley Field, the team said. He succeeds Mike Quade, who was fired a disappointing 71-91 season that extended the Cubs' infamous championship drought to 103 seasons.

Sveum will receive a three-year contract from the Cubs, a baseball source said.


"He's a good manager," said Cubs reliever John Grabow, who played for Sveum at Double-A Altoona from 2001 to 2003. "Really works hard with the hitters. He was more of a hitting guy when I was in Double-A. He was at the field every day working hard with the hitters.

"It doesn't surprise me he got a big league job by any means," Grabow said. "If you would've asked me in Double-A if he was going to be a major league manager, I probably would've said he's got a pretty good chance."

Grabow said Sveum's communication skills are sorely needed in Chicago after the Quade experience.

"He's the kind of guy who can talk to players, not be their best friend, but get to know them and what they're feeling," Grabow said.

Re: Sveum is new Cubs manager

Svuem was honestly the guy i wanted the brewers to hire when they went with ken macha. He is just a baseball man down to the bone. He is passionate about the game and the players seem to respond to him and respect him. Generally speaking i wish svuem would have gotten his first managerial job anywhere but on west addison, but i wish him well. Cubs fans will grow to like this guy alot.. Brewer fans already miss him
