Boston evidence right manager can make a difference

Boston evidence right manager can make a difference
This dragged out Joe Girardi saga has made some of us a little weary. The Yankees and Cubs are even reportedly getting antsy themselves waiting for a Girardi decision. For me, the longer it drags out the stranger some of the noise out there becomes. I’ve heard many claim the manager doesn’t make that much... Read more »

Today those thoughts were echoed from sources, as well as in print. I also told you to not expect an extension for Sveum. After Theo Epstein... Read more »

Timing could be right for Girardi and Cubs

Timing could be right for Girardi and Cubs
I have posed the question in the past, is Dale Sveum just the point A guy here? Is Sveum more or less the Alan Trammell of this rebuilding project? Some have speculated the Cubs front office will pounce on a more decorated field general when the talent and time is ripe. Maybe a Joe Maddon... Read more »
