Sveum was terrible as a 3rd base coach in Boston.....this is fact
does that mean he will be terrible as manager? no, it doesn't
really, show me others that try to smudge the champions of '04....most would have blown Ego on the spot for years, right up until this year when his pile of stinking bodies became too hard to ignore.....Tito was well liked here, the players from '04 especially are beloved
Sveum came back to Boston and said, this is my offer from Chicago, can you better it...to which the Red Sox said no.....
if I'm a Cubs fan I say no thank you to Sveum...if the Cubs weren't his first choice, he can sit and spin
(and I am telling you all, Sveum was never a real target in Boston, he was a smoke screen---the owners are thinking about a bigger name)
