The Cubs have fired 49-year old manager Dale Sveum. Sveum led the Cubs to a 66-96 (40.7%) record last year as they finished in last place, 31 games behind the Cardinals in the N.L. Central. Sveum compiled a 127-197 (39.2%) record in his two years on the job with the Cubs. It’s hard to blame Sveum too much for the Cubs’ woes on the field as they were outmanned on most nights.
