Today, in honor – or at least recognition – of Sveum (who’s already 0-1 … thanks a lot, bullpen) and Ventura (whose Opening Day record is TBD) debuts, I thought I’d delve a bit into the history of Chicago’s first-year managers to see what kind of historical hill the new skippers are facing.
The sellout crowd in the Miami Marlins’ new ballpark cheered the introduction of their starters, who were accompanied by women dressed as Latin showgirls.

Ozzie Guillen has said he can manage anybody. We’ll soon find out, says The Score’s Brian Hanley.
