Sveum extends well-wishes to counterpart Baker
CHICAGO -- Reds manager Dusty Baker remained in a Chicago hospital Thursday to undergo tests for an irregular heartbeat.

"It's a demanding job, there's no question about it," Chicago's Dale Sveum said about being a big league manager. "Whatever health issues we all have, you never take your health for granted. All our prayers go out to [Baker], and I hope everything's good for Dusty. He's a great guy, and the rest of this year will be important for him to be around and healthy."

Baker, who managed the Cubs from 2003-06, missed Thursday's game but is expected to join the team Friday in Cincinnati.

Will Sveum need some time to decompress after the season ends?

"I think we all have to kick back and just relax for a while and get away from it," Sveum said. "There will be that point when you start grinding all over again."
