Cubs To Introduce Dale Sveum At 9 AM News Conference


The presser will be streamed live on MLB.com, if you're looking for something to do while you're waiting for the Mug.

Sveum Suspended for 3 games.


Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum has been suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount for an encounter with umpires after Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Reds in Cincinnati. The suspension, which will begin tonight, was announced by Bob Watson, vice president for on-field operations for Major League Baseball. Sveum took exception to the calls being made by home plate umpire Kevin Causey. At the end of the game, Sveum yelled at Causey as he walked off the field. When third-base umpire Brian Runge became involved, Runge and Sveum exchanged words. MLB called Sveume's actions "inappropriate and aggressive toward the umpires." We'll have to see if this was a shock to manager Ken Macha. Causey made a contreversial interference call at second base the night before and he called out five Brewers on strikes when he was behind the plate Sunday. Causey was called up from the minors to fill-in for a vacationing umpire

New Hitting Coach: Dale Sveum

"This is something I've always wanted to do," Sveum said Saturday. "This has been a passion of mine, and I'm glad Ken is giving me the opportunity to do it." 2006: 3rd Base Coach 2007: Bench Coach 2008: 3rd Base Coach/Manager 2009: Hitting Coach Does this make Dale Sveum the coaching equivalent of Bill Hall?

Wavin' Dale Sveum?


BP's Steven Goldman takes a look at runners getting thrown out at home, and the Brewers are actually tied for 3rd-fewest with 9. Goldman: "We can’t generalize about the third base coaches from this data given that so many factors are in play here, from runners ignoring stop signs or falling down or the game state, but it is interesting that the number of chances a team takes doesn’t seem to correspond to the quality of its offense."
