    Taking batting practice before Cubs-Sox
    Some early BP before this week’s oil spill of a City Series: Who goes crazier tonight, Cubs runners on Gavin Floyd or the flash mob in Carlos Zambrano’s head? Web poll! Or maybe the question should be: Who do the Cubs run on more, Gavin...

    Pilots honor former Baby Dodgers GM Zodda
    Vic Zodda still knows talent when he sees it. About three weeks shy of 90, this Peninsula baseball pioneer watched the hometown team Tuesday at War Memorial Stadium, and when Pilots catcher Chris Cowell uncorked a throw to second base, Zodda took...
  • Fireworks and Baseball

    Fireworks on the 4th of July.  They’re as American as baseball & apple pie.  And one of my favorite things about watching baseball, is the ever-present possibility of explosives. Not the ones that fill the night sky after a win.  The kind that...
  • Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    I can't agree with your implication, or flat out statements, derogatory of Cubs manager Quade. He's probably what this team deserves. He stays positive and uses the limited talent he has to work with. I can't imagine Lou Piniella keeping his cool and...

  • Where will Francona manage next season?

    Where the next curse is Dom Amore Hartford Courant The Cubs are bedeviled by the most hideous curse in sports, so what do they need? A manager who has proven he can break such things. There are only two out there who have proven then can win with...
  • Miami Marlins' Logan Morrison a finalist for prestigious Hutch Award for community service

    I'm not sure if Logan Morrison will stay healthy or productive enough to be part of the Miami Marlins' future, but it's clear he's already distinguished himself with good deeds off the field. Morrison, the young outfielder and first baseman, was one of...
  • Is Jeffrey Loria trying to be the new George Steinbrenner?

    Jeffrey Loria was asked shortly after the Marlins won the 2003 World Series if he ran his team the way George Steinbrenner used to run the Yankees. "I don’t want to equate myself with Mr. Steinbrenner," the Marlins owner told interviewer Charlie...
  • Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    Paul, as a long-time Cub fan (since 1939) I see a very confusing system being installed as "the Cub way." What exactly is the plan? How can management expect the Cubs to pull this off in a few years? This plan, the way it's being implemented, will take...
