The decision is coming in a few days on whether Dale Sveum will be back next season. Theo Epstein officially made that clear today by saying decisions will be made on Monday regarding the coaching staff. Epstein also made it clear that there will be news for us on Monday.
Epstein and Jed Hoyer are in St. Louis to finish up the evaluation process. Both of them will conduct one-on-one interviews with the players during the final weekend of the season. Epstein made it clear once again that his previous comments didn’t mean anything. Referring to when he was asked about Sveum last week. Epstein also stated that changes will be made to the personnel department as well.
Epstein on decisions: “we owe to everyone involved to get it done quickly as soon as the season is over and move forward. We’ll finish this process on Monday.”
If the big news on Monday is that Sveum has been let go, Joe Girardi will be in play. The Cubs have been informed by Girardi’s camp that they will listen to the Cubs if they approach them and the Cubs surely will.
The chances of Sveum staying is at a 20%, according to a report that cited a source.
‘The Decision’ is looming!
