• Cubs suspend infielder over tweets


    NEW YORK: The Chicago Cubs have suspended infielder Ian Stewart for 10 games for comments about manager Dale Sveum that the player posted on Twitter. Stewart was sent to Chicago minor-league affiliate Iowa in early May and earlier this week complained bitterly about his treatment on the social networking site. “I think Dale doesn’t like me, and he’s running the show,” Stewart tweeted, adding that he expected the Cubs to “let me rott in AAA all season and then non tender me after.” Theo Epstein, president of baseball operations for the Cubs, announced the suspension on Friday, when the Cubs beat the New York Mets 6-3.
