Is Sveum The Next Quade?

It’s not fair to compare Dale Sveum to Mike Quade–the Cubs newest manager hasn’t even coached a meaningful game yet.

But this year’s spring camp has a similar feel to last year’s. A new manager preaching accountability, fundamentals and playing the game the right way.

Sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it Cubs fans?

As much as we want to believe this year is different, if for no other reason than Theo/Jed & Sveum, there’s no telling until the Cubs take the field one month from now. And even then we’re only expecting the Cubs to be marginally better than in 2011.

Sveum couldn’t be off to a better start. His leadership thus far is getting rave reviews from players and media alike. But the same was said for Quade 12 months ago.

Sweet Lou warned us not to get too “giddy.” We should have listened. Quade, it turned out, talked a better game than he managed. Here’s hoping it’s the opposite for the soft spoken Sveum.
