I wonder what Dale Sveum’s thinking with the Red Sox in town this weekend?
It was only six short months ago Sveum appeared in position to become the next manager of the Red Sox–not the Cubs.
Boston, of course, eventually tabbed Bobby Valentine as its skipper citing his experience and heavy-hand outweighed Sveum’s.
But Boston has fared only slightly better than Chicago in the following six months. The Red Sox are one-game under .500 and tied for last place in the very competitive AL East.
It’s not Cubs bad, but it might as well be by Bean Town’s standards.
