  • Clayton Kershaw doesn't have his 'best stuff' in 3-2 loss to Cubs

    Clayton Kershaw doesn't have his 'best stuff' in 3-2 loss to Cubs
    When Josh Beckett explained over the weekend why Clayton Kershaw might be the best pitcher he has ever seen, he wasn't talking about the movement on Kershaw's fastball or break on his curveball. Beckett marveled at what Kershaw showed Tuesday night in a...
  • 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

    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

    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...
  • Showalter 'proud' of Orioles after American League-leading six Gold Glove finalists

    Showalter 'proud' of Orioles after American League-leading six Gold Glove finalists
    In rebuilding the Orioles into a contender, manager Buck Showalter knew a greater priority needed to be placed on playing exceptional defense. Now, after a year during which the club set new standards for defensive excellence, the Orioles are being...
  • Cubs acquire RF David DeJesus

     
    Does this sound familiar?:  “I don’t see the Cubs addressing right field as a priority and they will likely see what Colvin is made of when given a full season to work with.  Expect Colvin to get most of the work in right in 2012.”  If...
  • Position analysis: Rizzo an anchor at first base

    Position analysis: Rizzo an anchor at first base
    Perhaps Anthony Rizzo’s best moment as a Cub wasn’t seen by fans at the ballpark or watching on TV. Amazingly, he didn’t even have a bat in his hand at the time. That moment of truth occurred in the Cubs’ clubhouse in Phoenix...
  • Position analysis: Barney's play par for course

    Position analysis: Barney's play par for course
    After a promising rookie season, Darwin Barney really established himself as an everyday second baseman in 2012, tying the major league single season record for consecutive errorless games at his position and putting himself in consideration for a...
  • 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...
  • Power rankings: No. 26 Cubs

    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...
  • Opening day at Wrigley Field

    Opening day at Wrigley Field
    The rain held off enough to start Friday's home opener on time, and a game-time temperature of 41 degrees was warm enough for most Cubs fans to deal with. But many in the crowd of 41,358 left by the seventh inning of a 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh, and the...
