Sveum's demeanor vital to Cubs' winning
CHICAGO -- During the Cubs' struggles in April and May, president of baseball operations Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer supported first-year manager Dale Sveum.

Now that the Cubs are on a roll -- entering Saturday afternoon's game against the D-backs as winners of 10 of their last 14 games -- that certainly hasn't changed.

"When a team is struggling for a month and a half or so, it's hard to stay upbeat and be the same person. But he did a great job of staying the same person," Hoyer said. "Our success over the past couple weeks, [is] a result of that and I think that bodes really well for the future. ... We really like what we've seen from Dale, and with [his] demeanor, I think that will serve us really well going forward."
