The Chicago Cubs have chosen Dale Sveum as the team’s new manager, but the news has many fans scratching their heads — including me.
It’s not that I have anything against Sveum, mind you. I realize he is perfectly qualified, and was a top managerial prospect for other teams, such as the Boston Red Sox. And, since the Cubs had already said major league coaching experience was a prerequisite for the job, I knew my top pick — Ryne Sandberg — wouldn’t get the nod no matter what.
However, once I came to terms with my disappointment over Ryno’s automatic exclusion, I turned my attention to those who would be interviewed.
After seeing Mike Maddux’s post-interview comments, I felt like we had found our man. I really liked what he had to say and appreciated that he had a record of proven success at the major-league level, but that alone wasn’t enough to convince me.
As any Cubs fan can attest, a number of heavy-hitting managers have come to Wrigley vowing to bring a World Series victory to Chicago — only to leave with their tails tucked between their legs in defeat. I don’t believe it has anything to do with a lack of talent on their part, though. Instead, I have become convinced that, to truly succeed, a Cubs manager should have experienced the unique history of the team firsthand prior to becoming a coach.
Mike Maddux never played for the Cubs, of course, but his brother Greg was a Cub for years and was even a special assistant for the team this past season. Yet we’ll never know if that experience would have given him an extra edge, as Maddux suddenly took himself out of the running due to family considerations.
But perhaps even if he had stayed in the running, Sveum still would have been hired. He believes in the same statistical analysis system advocated by the new Cubs leadership, and maybe number-crunching truly is the key to solving the Cubs’ long drought.

Just when the Houston Texans were looking like one of the teams to beat in the AFC, quarterback Matt Schaub suffers a foot injury that will keep him out indefinitely. Now is the time for Matt Leinart to prove, once and for all, that he can be a successful starting quarterback in the NFL.
“It’s a huge opportunity for me,” said Leinart, a former Heisman trophy winner at USC who has served as Schaub's backup the last two seasons. “I’m really bummed for Matt. We’ve become very close the last year and this year. He’s the leader of this football team and he’s done a great job in the 4 to 5 years he’s been here to get us to this point.... But he knows and everyone knows in this profession that things happen and the next guy has to step up."
Leinart has had his chances before, and it hasn't worked out so well. He was drafted 10th overall by the Arizona Cardinals in 2006 and started 11 of the 12 games he played that year, throwing 11 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in leading the team to a 4-7 record in those games.
He started the first five games of the following season -- throwing two touchdowns and four interceptions but leading the Cardinals to a 3-2 record -- before breaking his collarbone. Leinart never regained his starting job from veteran Kurt Warner, who led the team to its only Super Bowl appearance.
When Warner retired before the 2010 season, it appeared Leinart would reclaim his starting spot -- instead, he was cut just before the start of the season and landed with the Texans. Leinart initially agreed to join the Seattle Seahawks before this season, but opted to resign with Houston when he discovered he would have to compete with two other quarterbacks for the Seahawks starting job.
Now he's a starter again with the Texans, who are 7-3 and have a two-game lead in the AFC South.
“That's what I've wanted for a long time, and that's what I've worked hard for every day and prepared for every day,” Leinart said. “It's a great opportunity. I'm just excited about the chance.”
Head Coach Gary Kubiak says he has plenty of confidence in his new starter.
“He's played in big football games in this league, he's played in big football games in college,” Kubiak said. “Matt's been around it. The key is the whole team rallying around him and playing well as a team. Matt doesn't have to go win a game, the team has to go win a game. We'll rally around him and get him ready to go.”

The Hunger Games is a first person young-adult science fiction novel written by Suzanne Collins. It was originally published on September 14, 2008, by Scholastic. It is the first book of the Hunger Games trilogy. It introduces sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where the United States once existed. This is where a government working in a central city called the Capitol holds power. In the book, the Hunger Games are an annual televised event where the Capitol chooses one boy and one girl aged 12 to 18 from each of 12 districts for a massive televised battle in which only one person can survive.
2012 will see the release of the new flagship off-road car by Mercedes Benz. The ML63 AMG gets an update and does not disappoint. Featuring a 5.5L V8 twin turbo engine with 518 horspower, taking the car from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds, which is considering the size and weight certainly very impressive. Look out for these on the streets in the near future.
Handsome samplings of contemporary gadgetwerks, the venerable BARNEYS NEW YORK store will introduce its collaborative Nixon timepiece line for Holiday 2011 in the coming weeks. The sixth of such collection, the exclusive line is a showcase of the finest horology without the heap of cash it usually associate with. Based off two editions, the Automatic Chronograph and the Sentry, both will be available exclusively at BARNEYS CO-OP locations around the world.
Premiered in 2006 simply as the Nixon Automatic, the Swiss-Made innards went through a revamp to accommodate additional chronograph function for the BARNEYS Holiday 2011 model. Housed in a streamlined 44mm stainless steel case, the left-sided position of the crowns ensures comfort. Waterproof up to 200-meter with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal enclosure over the dial face, the BARNEYS Nixon Automatic Chronograph comes with two interchangeable bands, one with brushed stainless steel and the other in black crocodile leather.
Billed as “classically handsome” by staffers at Nixon, the BARNEYS Nixon Sentry carries a simple sophistication in its design. A 42mm stainless steel case quipped with easy to read numerals and day & date window, the BARNEYS Nixon Sentry will be available in black or white dial, both will have black crocodile leather band.
