  • Now Cubs will miscommunicate in a different language

    Now Cubs will miscommunicate in a different language
    Cubs season-ticket renewals went out this week. Yeah, baby, seize on that Manny Acta mania. Or is it Rick Renteria fever? No, wait, it’s Dave Martinez delirium. The good news for season-ticket holders is the Cubs will not raise prices next...
  • Power rankings: No. 15 Blue Jays

    Power rankings: No. 15 Blue Jays
    No. 15 Blue Jays: 16th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Dodgers. One more year, two at the most. Unless that pesky Mayan calendar is correct, and the Earth drifts into a black hole or is attacked by a higher species we never knew...
  • Sox playing well enough to make a deal

    While you were sleeping last night, and while you were sleeping through this Chicago baseball season, the White Sox became watchable. Or maybe it was while watching the Blackhawks, but whatever, the Sox not only won’t make you throw battery acid...
  • Good news: Baseball's playoff plan isn't as stupid as Selig's 2013 idea

    Baseball wants more money. Fox wants more playoff games. Deal. Like that, baseball is expected to announce a plan Thursday that expands the postseason by adding a wild-card team to each league. The two wild-card teams in each league likely will play...
  • Old friends settle a 42-year-old sports debt – with 34 dozen doughnuts

    FORT LAUDERDALE – My mission, if I chose to accept it, was simple. Simple but crazy. Good crazy. Heartwarming crazy. At the request of a Purdue University communications professor named Glenn Sparks, I would deliver 34 dozen doughnuts to a Fort...
  • Sox need Peavy to pull a Sale

    Sox need Peavy to pull a Sale
    Don’t look now, but first place could become second place for the White Sox by Thursday night. They have lost the first two games of their home series to the vexing, dastardly Blue Jays, who seem to beat the Sox as regularly as the Indians seem...
  • Dempster lesson: Trade Garza now, Theo

    Dempster lesson: Trade Garza now, Theo
    I don’t know what Theo Epstein is waiting for. Trade, Theo, trade. Trade Matt Garza. Now. I thought Garza would’ve been traded before the end of last night’s seventh inning vivisection of the White Sox, especially because it took...
  • Just great: Samardzija too lousy to trade

    Just great: Samardzija too lousy to trade
    The bigger question now is, can Anthony Rizzo pitch? Because Jeff Samardzija can’t. Not now. Not for a while. And he has delivered some of his worst showings at one of the worst times. Samardzija was tradeable in May. Now that window has closed....
  • Who's best Sox position player? (Trick question)

    Who's best Sox position player? (Trick question)
    For those of you scoring at home, that was eight runs, seven hits, two walks and two errors. In just the fourth inning. Leave it to the White Sox to out-disaster this season’s disaster. The Sox waited through a long rain delay, then took to...
  • IronPigs pitcher Camp and wife met thanks to a $2 savings

    Shawn Camp's return to his hometown of Fairfax, Va. on Oct. 30, 2004, included a trip with a friend to Brion's Grille. Heidi Gribble and her friend had the same idea of going out after a lab class at George Mason University. Gribble and her friend...
  • Stop offering Samardzija money, OK, Theo?

    Stop offering Samardzija money, OK, Theo?
    It's not that Jeff Samardzija would turn down $85 million from the Cubs, it's why would the Cubs offer him even that much? As an employee for the company that holds a 5 percent stake in the Chicago National League Ball Club, I need to know how stupid...
