  • Pretty good news in bad Bulls ending

    The Bulls finally had their full roster for Sunday’s game against the Knicks in New York. Fat lot of good it did them. Their offense looked worse than ever and their help defense was a joke. I mean, by the end of the first quarter, I wanted to stop...

    Taking swings at the Cubs' opener
    Wait, aren’t Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol supposed to be the proven guys in the Cubs bullpen? The Cubs seem as capable of running themselves out of games as pitching themselves out of them. I thought this was a new season. It might’ve only...

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    What is all the hand-wringing about Theo Epstein lately? Wasn't this expected? The Cubs needed a complete overhaul and Epstein is in the demolition phase. He seems to be ahead of schedule. We now know that Bryan LaHair can hit, Jeff Samardzija looks...
  • Power rankings: No. 20 Indians

    Power rankings: No. 20 Indians
    No. 20 Indians: No. 11 in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Rockies. If the Cubs could, they would run, not walk, away from the last three years of Alfonso Soriano's contract. The Orioles would do the same with the two left on Brian...

    Position analysis: Soriano retains value
    Before the final game of the season, Alfonso Soriano said he's ready for the trade rumors to start this winter. The next day, Cubs President Theo Epstein said he doesn't believe people "get an accurate picture of (Soriano) watching him across the field,"...
  • Readers' Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Readers' Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    With pitching so hard to acquire why do the Cubs insist on trading established pitchers like Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza for unproven players? Is pitching the name of the game? My idea is build around a good pitching staff. -- John Romano, Springfield,...
  • Position analysis: LaHair in fight in right

    Position analysis: LaHair in fight in right
    It’s hard to find any major league player who went through a 2012 season quite like Bryan LaHair did with the Cubs. After being installed as the first baseman in spring training, LaHair got his first real shot at proving himself in the majors at...
  • Quade's done, right? Uh, not so fast

    Quade's done, right? Uh, not so fast
    There are times when you can out-think yourself. There are episodes where you try to divine a situation and what you are being told begins to sound crazy and idiotic while also believable. But enough about Tony La Russa. In this case, I mean Mike Quade...
  • Learning the Campana and Soriano lessons

    Learning the Campana and Soriano lessons
    Two of the biggest stories in Cubs camp Monday involved Tony Campana and Alfonso Soriano. The former is leaving, while the latter would do so only grudgingly, and both represent object lessons for Cubs fans and management. Actually, Campana and...

    Chris Davis homers twice as Orioles come back to beat Nationals, 9-6
    The long-accepted theory around these parts is that Camden Yards morphs from a neutral park to a hitter's haven in late May to early June when the temperatures start heating up and the humidity thickens. It was 86 degrees at first pitch Wednesday night,...
  • What Tom Ricketts should have said

    It's not so much what Tom Ricketts said, but what he didn't. He said he got rid of general manager Jim Hendry (almost a month ago, actually, but more on that later). Great. Excellent. Good move. But then the Cubs' Fanboy Owner said he will pursue...
