Before the first game of this year’s White Sox-Cubs series, I asked a question that I’d like to revisit now that we have a result.

Mike Quade came to the conclusion that the Cubs are no longer contending. Quite the epiphany when you’ve hovering around 20 games under .500 for months, huh?

The Braves knocked Carlos Zambrano’s jock off. So, Zambrano did the only thing a professional could do:
He took his jock and went home.
