  • Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Do the Cubs intend on winning the World Series in 2015 or just starting to compete that particular year? I am anxious to see what the game plan is. --  George V, Lombard, Il. The master plan is to build sustained success. I just wonder about the fans&...
  • Why baseball fans are desperate for 2014

    Why baseball fans are desperate for 2014
    Mercifully, the 2013 baseball season in Chicago will be over in about 120 hours. With the White Sox and Cubs about to finish dead last in their respective divisions, no one blames you if you stopped paying attention after Opening Day. But before you...
  • Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    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...
  • Dear Stupid (you 7th-inning stretch people know who you are)

    Dear Stupid (you 7th-inning stretch people know who you are)
    The Cubs say they will update the fun at the ol’ ballpark this season, although I don’t know how you do that with Ian Stewart at third base. One thing is, the Cubs want to update the music in Wrigley Field. So, yeah, Castro Gangnam Style....
  • These Hawks are hard work

    These Hawks are hard work
    Thunder, lightning, three overtimes, late nights, I'm exhausted. It this sounds like a typical week in my sexy nightlife, but please. A simple request. Let's wrap these up a little earlier please! Seriously, I'm exhausted! Some of us have to work in...
  • Cubs can only improve in 2013 (but don't bet on it)

    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...
  • Cubs position analysis: Hole at the hot corner

    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...
  • Position analysis: Centering on DeJesus

    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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Cubs trade for 3B Ian Stewart

     
    If you liked Tyler Colvin and wanted to see what he was made of, you’re out of luck.  Colvin and DJ LeMahieu have been traded to the Colorado Rockies for Ian Stewart and Casey Weathers.  I used to take pride in being able to project certain moves...
