Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum interviewed for the Boston Red Sox managerial vacancy last week. Yesterday, Sveum interviewed for the Chicago Cubs managerial position.
Sveum’s only experience as a manager came in an interim position with the Brewers near the end of the 2008 season. Sveum led the Brewers into the playoffs that year.
Sveum also served as Boston’s third base coach when Theo Epstein was the general manager in Boston.
The Cubs interviewed Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin last week and is scheduled to bring in Texas pitching coach Mike Maddux.
The Cubs fired Mike Quade after a 71-91 season.
