Don't expect fireworks from Sveum or Ventura
(MCT) SURPRISE, Ariz. — Chicago has been blessed with some of the most quotable managers in all of baseball, from Leo Durocher and Eddie Stanky to Lou Piniella and Ozzie Guillen.
In a town that appreciates colorful characters, a manager who doesn't mind speaking his mind is worth his weight in gold.
Which brings us to Dale Sveum and Robin Ventura, the current leaders of the Cubs and White Sox, respectively, who face each other in a Cactus League game Thursday at Hohokam Park.
Finding the right word to describe these two is difficult, though "vanilla" probably would be in the right area.
