  • Be afraid, Cubs fans, be very afraid

    Be afraid, Cubs fans, be very afraid
    The Cubs reportedly are pursuing Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols, the two biggest names on sale at Free Agents R Us, “sale’’ being a relative term. I’m not sure I believe it because it’s hard to believe much at this time of...
  • Is Marmol stupid or uncoachable? Either way, he's untradable

    Is Marmol stupid or uncoachable? Either way, he's untradable
    When does Tom Ricketts say no? When does the Cubs head honcho stop eating millions of dollars in contracts just so Theo Epstein can get rid of Jim Hendry’s players? Carlos Zambrano went to Florida. Marlon Byrd went to Boston. Those deals alone put...
  • Power rankings: No. 4 Rays

    Power rankings: No. 4 Rays
    No. 4 Rays: 27th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Rangers. Who is crazier? Joe Maddon or Andrew Friedman? Or do the two men running baseball's best operation — without question the most efficient — know something that...
  • Forget NBC, the NHL is perfect for Comedy Central

    Welcome to the NHL Yuk-Yuk Lounge, and remember, there’s a two-drink minimum for customers --- a six-pack minimum for referees. We’ve got a great show planned, but there are always some surprises. You just never know how many Brendan...

    Man accuses Blackhawks, Cubs of 'stealing his ideas'

  • Travis Wood crashes Anthony Rizzo's beatification

    Travis Wood crashes Anthony Rizzo's beatification
    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. But seriously, folks, Rizzo will start...
  • Wait, Zambrano's the poised one?

    Wait, Zambrano's the poised one?
    Before the first game of this year’s White Sox-Cubs series, I asked a question that I’d like to revisit now that we have a result. Who would go crazier: Cubs runners on Gavin Floyd or the flash mob in Carlos Zambrano’s head? Answer:...
  • Ricketts plays Cubs fans for stupid

    Ricketts plays Cubs fans for stupid
    Tom Ricketts was asked what was wrong with his team that ranked among the worst in baseball, and he answered -- are you sitting down? -- “Nothing. Just a lot of injuries.’' Nothing? Is he tone deaf? Just injuries? Try bad. Ryan Dempster...
  • What Tom Ricketts should have said

    It's not so much what Tom Ricketts said, but what he didn't. He said he got rid of general manager Jim Hendry (almost a month ago, actually, but more on that later). Great. Excellent. Good move. But then the Cubs' Fanboy Owner said he will pursue...
  • 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...

    Cubs must quit on the quitter
    The Braves knocked Carlos Zambrano’s jock off. So, Zambrano did the only thing a professional could do: He took his jock and went home.  Took everything out of his locker, actually, and went somewhere. AWOL. Crying for mommy. Whatever, at least...
