When will Dale Sveum's job be in jeopardy?

I have been known to stir the pot a bit, watching this Cubs team gives me the impression that there is not the universal response and respect towards your manager you would want out of an MLB ballclub. It is not to say the Cubs are quitting, but are they giving the 110% you would want?

I know last year there was a lot of tactical praise for positioning of players and other things Dale did given the cards in his hand, but this year there is a lot more negativity in the first 3 weeks than I remember in any stretch of time last year.

I think for some, the honeymoon period is quickly approaching its end and though it is early, what is the tipping point to say this team needs a new manager? (i.e. 30 - 51 at the break, free pass until end of year and then evaluated, or Dale has very little risk of losing his job before his contract is up).

It is always been my opinion that Joe Girardi will be the manager at the helm when the Cubs break the World Series drought.

As always, curious to hear everyone's thoughts.
