I mean, I...guess Dale Sveum is just trying to get it right.
Because he's being either super cautious or super cagey about which Cub hopefuls are going to make it.
I didn't keep track of everywhere I read it, but I swear in almost every article I read that includes a Sveum quote, he uses the "it's not etched in stone" line somewhere.
Sort of like this...
REPORTER: Do you think you'll keep DeJesus leading off, even if he's only gotten 8 hits all spring?
SVEUM: Uh, I think so. But it's not etched in stone.
REPORTER: What about the rotation. Volstad or Wells or Lopez?
SVEUM: That's...not etched in stone. One of those guys'll tell me.
Kinda cracks me up, actually.
Wouldn't you be nervous if you were Sveum?
Anyway, next couple days he ought to lay it all out.
I think he's gonna spill what the rotation will be on Wednesday at least.
Here's hoping he makes the right choices, at least for now.
Because actually, if there's anything I know about 2012?
It's that nothing is etched in stone.
