The Chicago Cubs must have liked what they heard from Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum, because they've asked the managerial candidate for a second interview according to a report in the Sun-Times. Sveum was scheduled to meet with Cubs team officials on Tuesday, according to the report, and is also set to meet with Red Sox officials for the second time on Wednesday.
Sources say Boston appears closer to being ready to make an offer to Sveum than the Cubs.
Texas pitching coach Mike Maddux is also considered a Cubs front-runner.
It sounds like there is a pretty good chance that Sveum is managing in either Chicago or Boston next season. In addition to Sveum and Maddux, the Cubs have also interviewed Pete Mackanin, Sandy Alomar Jr. and DeMarlo Hale.
