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?

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.

Victor Martinez DH’d for the Tigers in 112 games last season.
Now he’s out for the year with a knee injury.
Tell me Theo Epstein was phoning Detroit about Alfonso Soriano.

Bodog lists the Cubs at 7-4 to sign free agent Albert Pujols, a bigger favorite than the Cardinals.
Excuse me, but does Bodog know the Cubs are being run by Theo Epstein and not Jim Hendry?
There seems to be a tendency to look at the stars of this free-...
