    Mark Trumbo, Diamondbacks agree to $4.8-million, one-year contract
    The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided arbitration with Mark Trumbo by agreeing Thursday to a $4.8-million, one-year contract with the outfielder. Arizona acquired Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels in December in a three-team trade that also included the...
  • Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    What happens when Javier Baez comes up? Does Starlin Castro get traded? -- Hank, Rock Island There are many considerations. Assuming Castro rebounds and Baez earns a major league promotion, I believe Baez would move to second or third base. If Darwin...
  • Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    I've noticed over the past few years, it seems the Cubs are the only team that continues to deploy a left and right-handed lineup card depending on the starting pitcher. To me, that seems like it would be hard for anyone to get in a groove. Why not just...

    For new Cubs manager, youth must be served
    Firing Dale Sveum is Theo Epstein admitting he made a mistake, but not firing Sveum when the future was dying would’ve been a bigger error. Epstein recently offered a checklist by which Sveum would be evaluated -- stuff such as developing young...
  • 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...

    Cubs tradition: Throwing out ceremonial first discussion of fans' patience
    If you believe the 2013 Cubs were built to stink -- spoiler alert: they were -- then you had to like Edwin Jackson’s miserable start in Monday’s home opener and Starlin Castro’s aggravating last out that was a wind shift from turning...

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    I have been a Cubs fan since 1948, so I have seen some poor baseball. However, it is time to release Marmol for the Cubs' good and also for his own good. Bill A., Newburgh, Ind.   I don’t really see that happening, at least not until they exhaust...
