    Wicked slider wasn't even in Humber's arsenal early last year
    That pitch that got away from A.J. Pierzynski to end Phil Humber's perfect game Saturday? The same pitch that Michael Saunders and John Jaso couldn't lay off earlier in the ninth? Those were sliders, wicked, wicked sliders. "Hard, sharp and quick," said...

    The blog for people who don't have all day to read blogs
    Lovie Smith has to say he likes his group of offensive linemen. Just like we have to slam our palms to our foreheads. Lovie Smith also has to say he’s “comfortable’’ with a left tackle who gave up the most sacks and committed...

    Finally, Wood gets a win as a Cub

    Imagine: A right-handed Sox starter who can pitch

  • Sox pitching coach copes

    Sox pitching coach copes
    What White Sox ace Chris Sale called a disgrace after his four-inning outing Tuesday, pitching coach Don Cooper brushed off as a bad day. What qualified as frustration Thursday for fellow Sox first-year starter Jose Quintana in a 5-3 loss to the Orioles,...

    Someone explain the Sox's plan -- please

    Power rankings: No. 27 Padres
    It's all about Luke Gregerson. Says a lot, doesn't it? Over the last two seasons, the best thing about the Padres has been their bullpen. It carried Bud Black's team to the threshold of the playoffs in 2010 and was the backbone of a bad team last year as...
  • Garza is still here, and I'm wondering why

    It’s Thursday, July 18, and Matt Garza remains a Cub. Fix this, Theo. Change this, Jed. Do the deal, guys. If I were Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, I’d do the deal before Friday, when the Cubs resume their drive for next year’s...
