Me, I’d have traded Matt Garza after the first inning in Pittsburgh when he survived a one-out walk and got a magnificent catch from Julio Borbon.
Or I might’ve cut the deal to send Garza to (your rotation here) after the second inning...

PITTSBURGH — Damn you, Dan Haren. You and your mysterious MRIs.
That's what Cubs President Theo Epstein had to be thinking when Carlos Marmol started to fall apart in the ninth inning on Monday, threatening to turn opening day from a delightful...

Ron Santo will enter the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., on Sunday for his accomplishments on the field.

From no-trade clauses to eminently tradable contracts.
That’s part of Theo Epstein’s massive remaking of the Cubs: retaining talent while also retaining the flexibility to deal that same talent.

This one is too easy: Anthony Rizzo finally got called up from the minors and will make his Cubs debut after going 0-for-his-last-9 in Iowa. So, yeah, he’s a perfect Cub.
See? Told you it was too easy.

So much for Anthony Rizzo's victory lap.
On the day after Rizzo's critically acclaimed Chicago debut, the Cubs demonstrated nicely what exactly he has gotten himself into.
The 17-1 loss to the Mets wasn't quite like that horrific, fireball-generating...
