I’m giving Dale Sveum a thumbs up at the All Star break despite the Cubs (33-52) record.
Doesn’t mean Sveum is without faults, but he’s largely steadied the Cubs leaky ship through the first three months of the season.
Not much has come easily for Sveum. The Cubs started the season (1-5), then came the 12-game losing streak, Soriano’s bum knee,Castro’s mental errors, Marmol’s continuous struggles…etc, etc.
But if not for Sveum’s steady hand the Cubs could actually be worse in the standings than 19-games below .500.
