The Chicago Cubs dismissed manager Dale Sveum on Monday, after two years on the job

The Cubs went 66-96 in 2013, and finished last in the National League Central, one year after going 61-101 in 2012, with the second-worst record in baseball.

In two seasons on Chicago’s Northside, Sveum accumulated a record of 127-197.

The 49-year old Sveum, who played 14 MLB seasons with the Brewers, Phillies, White Sox, A’s, Mariners, Pirates, and Yankees, was previously a coach for the Red Sox, before being hired by the Cubs to replace Mike Quade.

The Cubs ended their season losing 41 of the final 59 games.

The next manager for the Cubs will be their 59th in franchise history, including interim managers.

Since 1991, the Cubs have had nine full-time managers, including Don Zimmer, Jim Lefebvre, Tom Trebelhorn, Jim Riggleman, Don Baylor, Dusty Baker, Lou Piniella, Quade, and Sveum.
