    Cubs position analysis: Hole at the hot corner
    The Cubs couldn’t find a way to replace Aramis Ramirez at third base this year, and have to go back to the drawing board in 2013. They tried Ian Stewart, Luis Valbuena and Josh Vitters for the most part, with Joe Mather filling in occasionally, and...
  • Is Marmol stupid or uncoachable? Either way, he's untradable

    Is Marmol stupid or uncoachable? Either way, he's untradable
    When does Tom Ricketts say no? When does the Cubs head honcho stop eating millions of dollars in contracts just so Theo Epstein can get rid of Jim Hendry’s players? Carlos Zambrano went to Florida. Marlon Byrd went to Boston. Those deals alone put...

    It's official: Carlos Marmol out as Cubs' closer
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum made it official Friday morning: Carlos Marmol is no longer the closer out of the bullpen. The two met in Sveum’s office before Friday’s game against the Dodgers at Wrigley Field and Marmol was “fine with it,...

    Power rankings: No. 10 Red Sox
    Bobby Valentine has managed in the World Series and won a championship in Japan but he never has taken a major league team to a division title in 15 seasons as a manager. It's not likely to happen this year either. A year after widespread indifference...

    Epstein, Hoyer get nothing for another big-name pitcher

    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...
  • Johnson replaces Byrd in Cubs' lineup

    Johnson replaces Byrd in Cubs' lineup
    Reed Johnson will start Thursday in the Chicago Cubs' series finale against Milwaukee at Wrigley Field, with manager Dale Sveum sitting the slumping Marlon Byrd. Byrd has only one hit in 21 at-bats this season and none in his last 19. The Cubs' lineup...

    Power rankings: No. 18 Royals
    No. 18 Royals: 13th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Brewers. When talent comes in waves, good things happen to teams. The long-suffering Royals believe they have reached the point where their hard work and over-slot spending in the...
  • Taking swings at the Cubs' opener

    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...

    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...

    Does Sveum know he's reading from a bad script?
    Dale Sveum sounded so grounded, so non-plussed, so honest even before he was introduced as the new Cubs manager. And now this. Reading what Sveum was saying at the winter meetings makes you wonder if he already has gotten Cubbed. Or maybe someone...
