    Emanuel warm to right field Wrigley party deck over Sheffield
    Mayor Rahm Emanuel today sounded supportive of allowing the Cubs to build a right field party deck over Sheffield Avenue, pointing out that the Ricketts family and the rooftop owners both like the idea while adding it's important to get the community's...
  • Susannah Collins: From silly 'Shoot The Puck' duty to growing folk hero

    Susannah Collins ought to thank the Blackhawks. They made her a folk hero, and folk heroes never die. Neither do the connections to the villains who took them out. Looking at you, Rocky Wirtz. During a Comcast SportsNet segment, Collins made an on-air...
  • Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...
  • Hahn's poker game with Peavy

    Hahn's poker game with Peavy
    Jake Peavy is scheduled to start Tuesday, which means he is scheduled to be traded before that. That’s the thinking. That’s the rumor. That’s why Peavy packed several extra bags and cleaned out his locker as the White Sox left for a...

    Rosenbloom: It's Ricketts' money, so let him spend it
    Tom Ricketts might not believe it or care, but I’m with him on this one. Let him run his business like a business, and he won’t ask the city, county or state for a dime to help the Cubs fix up Wrigley Field. Deal. During the Cubs...

    Reader's Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    Baseball has stats for everything. Has anybody figured out the Cubs' team ERA in the eighth inning? It's gotta be in the teens. Ken, Portland, Ore.   Not quite. The Cubs had a 5.42 ERA in eighth innings as of July 10, with an .818 OPS. Not good. But ERA-...
  • Rosemont makes a play for Cubs, but they'd rather play the clown

    Rosemont makes a play for Cubs, but they'd rather play the clown
    I’m still waiting for confirmation from the Elias Sports Bureau, but I believe that Tom Ricketts now leads the Chicago Owners League in negotiating errors. It’s hard to think he surpassed Michael McCaskey in such a short time, but the...
  • Ricketts seeks pledge that rooftop owners won't sue

    Ricketts seeks pledge that rooftop owners won't sue
    Even after the City Council unanimously signed off Wednesday on the Cubs' $500 million remake of Wrigley Field and the neighboring area, the exact scope and starting day of the project remained uncertain. That's because Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts issued...
  • Ernest goes to: Kerry Wood's 'Wiffle For a Diffle' charity tournament

    Ernest goes to: Kerry Wood's 'Wiffle For a Diffle' charity tournament
    Chicago, we really need to have a conversation about the term "V.I.P." Hosting a private V.I.P. event that manages to have 400 people crammed into it kind of kills the mystique, doesn't it? You snag an invite to a hot party only to find yourself getting a...
  • Twitter's love/hate relationship with Darren Rovell

    Twitter's love/hate relationship with Darren Rovell
    The man behind one of the most polarizing Twitter accounts wanted to make one thing clear before Wednesday's Cubs game. "I am not going away from Twitter," Darren Rovell emphatically told the assembled crowd at Wrigley Field's Captain Morgan Club. The...
