The outstanding Trib columnist explains that the Cubs’ manager was given very little to work with over the last two seasons (especially in the second half of both), while maintaining an outstanding professionalism throughout his tenure. Haugh also chides those who are letting Sveum dangle in the name of speculating names like Girardi and Gardenhire and estimates whether Dale will be the manager this time, next week.
