  • Phillies' fear: Becoming the new Cubs

    Phillies' fear: Becoming the new Cubs
    Say this for the Phillies. They got a World Series title and five consecutive playoff seasons out of their payroll escalation. But are they about to suffer Cubs-like pain? That's the question that faces general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. as he faces a...
  • Peavy does all he can

    Peavy does all he can
    Is that all there is? Jake Peavy, the guy who was going to play the role of Jose Contreras on the next great White Sox team, may have pitched his last game at U.S. Cellular Field in a home uniform. It was a big game, maybe the biggest of the season,...
  • Deals with Jackson, Villanueva shore up rotation

    Deals with Jackson, Villanueva shore up rotation
    Edwin Jackson gambled, and he won. The question for the Cubs is whether he and Carlos Villanueva will win too much next season? I wouldn't worry about it if I was President Theo Epstein or general manager Jed Hoyer. They still should be sitting pretty...
  • Cubs clearly losing patience with Marmol

    Cubs clearly losing patience with Marmol
    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...
  • 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

    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...
  • If you're going to showcase Zambrano, then really make it a show

    If you're going to showcase Zambrano, then really make it a show
    Carlos Zambrano is pitching well enough to get traded. But apparently he has acted badly enough in an embarrassing past and has pitched inconsistently enough this embarrassing year to remain a Cub. How badly has he acted and how inconsistently has he...
  • 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:...

    Man accuses Blackhawks, Cubs of 'stealing his ideas'
    A man from Burr Ridge is accused of sending threatening emails to the president and owner of the Chicago Blackhawks and the former general manager of the Chicago Cubs, accusing them of “stealing his ideas” to win championships, police said....
