  • 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...
  • Does Sveum know he's reading from a bad script?

    Does Sveum know he's reading from a bad script?
    Dale Sveum sounded so grounded, so non-plussed, so honest even before he was introduced as the new Cubs manager. And now this. Reading what Sveum was saying at the winter meetings makes you wonder if he already has gotten Cubbed. Or maybe someone...
  • The truth about Sox honesty and Cub delusions

    The truth about Sox honesty and Cub delusions
    The White Sox are five games out of first place in the AL Central and just lost five of seven at home against divisional opponents. Paul Konerko says his Sox don’t look like a division-winning team right now. Rank honesty about a team playing pretty...
  • Quade wakes up, now who's next? Hello, Tom Ricketts

    Mike Quade came to the conclusion that the Cubs are no longer contending. Quite the epiphany when you’ve hovering around 20 games under .500 for months, huh? Quade claimed the Cubs were in position to get back in the race if they had a good run...
  • The stupid gas is pumping out strong at Wrigley

    The stupid gas is pumping out strong at Wrigley
    Just some quick aggravation to vent about the Cubs: Cubs interim general manager Jim Hendry traded Kosuke Fukudome to create more playing time for young outfielder Tyler Colvin, who might or might not be a dangerous left-handed power bat the Cubs...
  • Village idiots rejoice: Another Zambrano apology tour

    Village idiots rejoice: Another Zambrano apology tour
    I believe Carlos Zambrano. When he told Comcast SportsNet that only about three teammates contacted him after he was placed on the We’re Sick Of You List, I believe him. Everything else is a crock. No, wait, I believe Zambrano when he says he...
  • Throwing the book at Ricketts

    Throwing the book at Ricketts
    Wait, Tom Ricketts is handing out books to the new Cubs on the pride of the most futile team in sports. Seriously? Wasn’t “Year One’’ all about denying the stench of the past? But if the book includes the pride in being ready...
  • Who's best general manager in MLB?

    Rays' Andrew Friedman Steve Gould Baltimore Sun Baseball's most competitive division features perhaps its three best front office chiefs and one (the Blue Jays' Alex Anthopoulos) quickly on the rise. The Yankees' Brian Cashman and the Red Sox's Theo...
  • Cubs farm director Fleita given extension

    Cubs farm director Fleita given extension
    The Cubs have quietly extended the contract of player personnel director Oneri Fleita, one of the key additions of fired general manager Jim Hendry. Fleita, who has been lavishly praised by chairman Tom Ricketts, was given the new deal even though the...
  • Ricketts found a new way to mess up Cubs GM search

    Ricketts found a new way to mess up Cubs GM search
    Hello, and sorry to bother you on this holiday weekend. I don’t usually show up here today, and certainly not during a long weekend, but Cubs Fanboy Owner Tom Ricketts just did something so dumb that I couldn’t control myself. Here’s...
