    Trading Marmol could fill a couple of Cubs holes
    Reports say the Tigers are looking to trade for a closer. Hang loose, Carlos Marmol. I mean, didn’t the Cubs sign Kyuji Fujikawa precisely because they intended-slash-hoped-slash-tried to trade Marmol? In fact, the Cubs cut a deal with the...

    By Zeus, these Bears are exciting!
    If you suddenly feel the urge to reevaluate Shea McLellin's career, I'm right there with you. After sacking Aaron Rodgers and breaking his collarbone, some would call that a game changer. I'm calling it a "season changer" and as a result, I'll say it....

    Get this Cub some clothes, stat!

  • Rizzo sounds as soft as his batting average

    Rizzo sounds as soft as his batting average
    Anthony Rizzo was moved back to the third spot in the Cubs’ lineup against the Dodgers on Monday night. He went 1-for-4 and grounded into a double play. Inspiring, no? But thank goodness his ego has been properly massaged. In the five games...

    Dugout confrontation problem: You see how lame Cubs pitchers are

    Epstein has to know Sveum's number is up
    Everybody clinches something at Wrigley Field. In the last week, the Braves and Pirates clinched a division title and a playoff spot, respectively, while the Cubs clinched the most home losses in team history and the worst attendance since Sammy Sosa...
  • Samardzija at his best in Cubs opener

    PITTSBURGH — Jeff Samardzija was in the news near the end of camp when Theo Epstein told a reporter the right-hander dumped his girlfriend last year to prove he was committed to becoming a starter. If Samardzija continues to dominate the way he did...
  • Forget playing better, Cubs need to trade better

    Forget playing better, Cubs need to trade better
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum and team president Theo Epstein believe the Cubs will take a big step forward this season, and I’m thinking, I guess losing only 90 games would be a big step. Another 100 losses, however, is easily attainable, don’t...
  • Quick, someone wake Theo and tell him to dump Marmol

    Dale Sveum must be trying to get fired. Or maybe the Cubs manager hates Cubs fans. Or perhaps he’s an agent of evil sent by North Korea’s Kim Jong-un to destroy the Cubs because their legendary ineptitude and continued consignment to a...
  • 99 problems, Cubs-style

    99 problems, Cubs-style
    The pieces aren't in place yet for the Cubs, but the plan is and so is the braintrust. Whether Tom Ricketts, Theo Epstein and Dale Sveum will succeed remains a mystery, and the fact is there's more to be done. A lot more. So on the cusp of Wrigley...

    An odd sound coming out of the Marmol mess
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum finally made the move he never should’ve had to make: yanking Carlos Marmol as closer. Sveum never should’ve had to make the move because team president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer should’ve...
