The Chicago Cubs introduced Dale Sveum as their new manager Friday.  Sveum received a reported three-year deal with an option for a fourth year.  He replaces Mike Quade, who was not retained after Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer recently came on board last month to assume the club's front office duties.  Sveum had been a coach with the Milwaukee Brewers the last six years, including a stint as interim manager when he replaced the fired Ned Yost in September 2008.  Sveum had also interviewed for the Boston Red Sox managerial job.
