    Position analysis: Centering on DeJesus
    In a perfect world, Brett Jackson would be the Cubs’ starting center fielder for 2013 and years to come. That was certainly the idea when Jackson was brought up from Triple-A Iowa in early August, but the former first-round draft pick fizzled in...

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...

    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...

    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
    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...

    Cubs lose but fans optimistic on Opening Day
    Expectations for the Chicago Cubs may be the lowest in years heading into a new season, but everyone's somewhat optimistic on Opening Day. The Cubs and Washington kicked off the 2012 season Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field with Ryan Dempster facing...
  • It's time to root, root, root for ...

    Cubs fans claimed they would be patient and understanding with the idea of sitting through a rebuilding program. Not that fans had any experience at it. The Cubs always acted like the Yankees with a learner’s permit. The Cubs were always about...

    Cubs can only improve in 2013 (but don't bet on it)
    The Cubs were built to lose 100 games, so what was with the obsession to avoid it? The actual issue is losing 100 games and still not getting the top pick in the draft. So Cub. I can understand players not wanting to be a part of 100 losses. I...
