Sveum in as Cubs manager

Dale Sveum is the new Cubs manager.

Just hours after it was reported Mike Maddux would likely turn down the job, the Cubs announced the hiring of Sveum.

Sveum was originally considered the favorite for the Red Sox managerial gig, but the Boston brass pulled out of the running Wednesday night in a sense, citing a lack of desire for rushing to extend an offer to any managerial candidate.

CSNChicago.com's Cubs Insider Patrick Mooney tweeted out the news Thursday afternoon after the team sent out a media advisory.
