BOOM: It’s Rick Renteria

Chicago Cubs News

boom goes the dynamiteAnd there you have it.

According to multiple – like, dozens – reports this evening, the Chicago Cubs will tomorrow introduce former San Diego Padres bench coach Rick Renteria as the newest manager of the team.

Renteria, 51, succeeds Dale Sveum, who was named manager just two years ago. He’ll inherit a young, developing team, and an extremely solid farm system that should start bearing fruit shortly. The focus in this search was player development, a particular strong suit for Renteria. I am very excited to see how his era begins.

The official announcement and press conference are expected tomorrow, at which time there should be a great deal more to discuss.
