11/16 Sveum meeting
It may simply be a matter of semantics, but the Cubs are not characterizing their meeting Wednesday with Dale Sveum as a second interview. Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer have been following up with the managerial candidates by phone, and are taking advantage of Sveum being in Milwaukee. Sveum is scheduled to meet with the Red Sox again Wednesday, including ownership. The Cubs have been in contact with Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux, who has to determine if he’s willing to move his family again. He has two college age daughters. That is apparently still an issue.
