    The Chicago Cubs have fired manager Dale Sveum after a morning meeting with with team president Theo Epstein, the team said Monday. Epstein was effusive in his lauding Sveum's effort in the news release to announce the move. Sveum’s had a bull’s-eye on his back ever since president of baseball operations Theo Epstein declined to say the manager would be returning in 2014. That non-answer on Sept.

"He and his staff helped us excel in game planning and defensive positioning, contributed to the emergence of several players, and helped put us in position to make some important trades. "I have no doubt that much like Terry Francona, whom we hired in Boston after his stint with a losing Phillies club Dale will go on to great success with his next team."
