EVANSTON, Ill. -- New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi knows how hard it is to run a team, especially one as storied as his former team, the Chicago Cubs. That's why he is hoping for the best for new Cubs skipper Dale Sveum.

"I had a chance to know Dale a little bit, not a lot," Girardi told ESPNChicago.com as he watched the Michigan St.-Northwestern football game on Saturday afternoon. "And obviously, he's had a number of jobs, whether it's been a third base coach in Boston or hitting coach in Milwaukee, and he's been around the game a long time and he's a guy that has prepared himself for this opportunity and I'm happy for him."
