Cubs fire manager Dale Sveum

After winning only 18 of their final 59 games the Chicago Cubs fired manager Dale Sveum.

The Cubs finished dead last in the NL Central for the first time in seven years with only 66 victories.

With Sveum out speculation has already started to turn to Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

The former Cub grew up in Peoria, Illinois and played college baseball just outside of Chicago at Northwestern.
