    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...
  • 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...

    Power rankings: No. 26 Cubs
    En route to 91 losses last season and a radical regime change, the Cubs were outscored by 102 runs. As it happens, half of those can be put down to talent and half of them to playing the game well. Bill James tracks manufactured runs, both created and...
  • Hope the Cubs can play their game better than the owner is playing his

    Forbes Magazine valued the Cubs franchise at $773 million, which is about $72 million less than the purchase price when the Ricketts family took over, or about what Alfonso Soriano is owed. Interestingly, that’s up 6 percent from last year’...

    Castro gets 'mental break' vs. Reds
    Starlin Castro will celebrate the one-year anniversary of his debut against the Reds by ... sitting against the Reds. Castro was not in the Cubs' lineup for Saturday's 12:15 p.m. game vs. Cincinnati at Wrigley Field. Neither was Alfonso Soriano, who will...
  • Cubs players pants their manager

    Cubs players pants their manager
    Consider Mike Quade “Cubbed.’’ After his team choked away a four-run lead in Cincinnati on Monday, the Cubs manager called a closed-door meeting, which is hysterical for a team that can’t close the door. Anyway, Quade watched...
  • Weird words for common things

    Weird words for common things
    You're about to become the most fun — or at least most memorable — guest at this year's Memorial Day picnic. "How 'bout that wacky Arnold and his satyriasis?" you might say over brats. "Arnold Schwarzenegger has psoriasis?" your bewildered...
  • Here's why it looks like Hendry is safe

    Here's why it looks like Hendry is safe
    The Oakland A's fired their manager. The Florida Marlins fired their hitting coach. Can you imagine? Whoever heard of such a thing -- firing somebody for failing? First thought: Jim Hendry had better hide the papers and the Interwebs from Fanboy Owner...
  • It's time to root, root, root for ...

    Cubs fans claimed they would be patient and understanding with the idea of sitting through a rebuilding program. Not that fans had any experience at it. The Cubs always acted like the Yankees with a learner’s permit. The Cubs were always about...
