  • Takin' it to the Maddux

    Takin' it to the Maddux
    Let the Joe Girardi talk begin. Good luck. First off, you're not going to get him, Theo Epstein. The Yankees are going to beat you to him, sorry. I love Epstein's optimism. He says the perception around the league is the Cubs are coming, and coming...
  • The Chicago Baseball Happiness Scale

    The Chicago Baseball Happiness Scale
    It's been a bad year for Chicago baseball. The city's beloved ball clubs enter the All-Star break a combined 27 games under .500, and any hope created in 2012 on either side of town seems long dead. The 2013 season will be remembered by fans of either...
  • Good start: Sveum saw the same dogbreath Cubs you did

    Dale Sveum will not be doing two shows a night at Zanies. That much we know. That much was evident in his introductory press conference as the Cubs’ new manager. Yeah, well, fine. Stand-up comedy isn't his job. Standing up to the dog attitude of...

    Report: Giants add Piniella to front office
    San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Lou Piniella won't stay retired for long, as he is reportedly joining the San Francisco Giants front office as a consultant. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Piniella will lend his experience and baseball...
  • 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 choose the best 'Who?' available

    Cubs choose the best 'Who?' available
    This was never going to be a “Wow!’’ hire. In fact, if the Cubs indeed sign Dale Sveum, then the hire is more “Who?’’ than “Wow!’’ The Cubs already made their “Wow!’’ hire. Theo...
  • Rogers' rankings: No. 16 Nationals

    Rogers' rankings: No. 16 Nationals
    No. 16 Nationals: 15th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Blue Jays Bryce Harper hasn't played a day in the big leagues, and unfortunately for him there is only one way to go. It is opposite of up. But if you want to bet on Harper as...
  • Here's some of the culture Theo can change

    Tip to Theo Epstein: Don’t call your new team the “Cubbies.’’ Ever. It’s lame and reeks of carpet-bagging. It sounds as if you’re here for some easy cash and looking to cross another item off your bucket list....
  • Hope the Cubs can play their game better than the owner is playing his

    Forbes Magazine valued the Cubs franchise at $773 million, which is about $72 million less than the purchase price when the Ricketts family took over, or about what Alfonso Soriano is owed. Interestingly, that’s up 6 percent from last year’...
  • Opening day at Wrigley Field

    Opening day at Wrigley Field
    The rain held off enough to start Friday's home opener on time, and a game-time temperature of 41 degrees was warm enough for most Cubs fans to deal with. But many in the crowd of 41,358 left by the seventh inning of a 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh, and the...
