He's got four World Series rings, roots in the Chicago area and experience navigating the allegedly haunted halls of Wrigley Field.
And now that Dale Sveum has been mercifully put out to pasture, it's time to bring Joe Girardi home to Clark and Addison....

This is something you don't see two-time major winners do very often.
John Daly was at a Nashville pizza parlor over the weekend when, apparently on a dare, he hit a golf ball that was on top of a tee held in a fan's mouth.
Now, I'm thinking that...

The kids got Dale Sveum. The Cubs’ young players believed to be the core of the future didn’t develop the last two years -- in fact, they got worse -- and that sounded like the big reason Theo Epstein whacked his manager.

We'll try this for a few Tuesday mornings to see if there's a comment constituency for regularly scheduled chatter about sports -- pro, college, recreational. Here's some chum for the waters: Major League Baseball's one-game play-in for each league's two....

Dale Sveum is out the door, Joe Girardi chose to stay in New York, and the Cubs are practically back to square one in their search for a new manager.

If you suddenly feel the urge to reevaluate Shea McLellin's career, I'm right there with you.

It's been a century of curses, curveballs and Cubs baseball at Wrigley Field, a milestone the organization plans to celebrate throughout the 2014 season.
