(CBS) When Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the Cubs’ baseball operations, one of their first moves was to dismiss then-manager Mike Quade.

The city of Chicago’s sporting attention then centered in on one thing – who will Epstein and Hoyer select to manage the Cubs as they turn the franchise from a disaster into a contender?

The duo ultimately selected Dale Sveum, but 670 The Score contributor Ken Rosenthal believes Sveum is – and always was – nothing more than an stop-gap.

“Let’s get one thing straight,” Rosenthal writes on, “the Cubs did not hire Sveum to be a long-term answer. He was the caretaker, the bridge to the big-name manager who would “complete the job” once the team was ready to win. Sveum knew it. The Cubs knew it. Everyone knew it.”
