Cubs Fire Dale Sveum: The Chicago Cubs have fired manager Dale Sveum after two seasons and are expected to make a run at New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi, whose contract is up in October. The Cubs were 70 games below 500 in 324 games with Sveum at the helm. In other managerial moves, the Minnesota Twins have extended Ron Gardenhire for two more years and Davey Johnson is ending his managerial career, leaving an opening at the Washington Nationals.

It's a high profile job and they play like they're under sanctions and short 20 scholarships, so, yeah, Lane Kiffin.
