Sveum settling into rhythm as manager
CHICAGO -- With first month of the regular season in the books and 26 games completed, now's the time when players can begin to settle in and feel comfortable as they prepare for the long season ahead.

The same can be said for managers, especially those in their first year, like the Cubs' Dale Sveum.

Sveum, who was hired in November, said he feels much more comfortable in his role now than when the season started.

"Yeah, I think no question," Sveum said. "No matter what you do in this game -- coaching and all that -- you still have to get in somewhat of a rhythm as manager, too, even though you feel like it's where you want to be."

"Like a player, Spring Training is what it is. It's not the regular season, when you have to make moves and keep up with the whole game, especially after the fifth inning. There's no doubt I'm a lot more comfortable than I was a month ago.
