  • Tiger let me down, too, and other reflections on the year that was

     
    My worst prediction for 2010 was, and I quote, "A highly focused Tiger Woods will win at least seven PGA tournaments." As it happened, a highly erratic Tiger Woods won zero tournaments this year. I also predicted that former Bolingbrook......

  • To Mike Quade, the kids aren’t alright

     
    If you watch “Chicago Tribune Live” as much as I do, you would know that host David Kaplan is adamant about “the kids” getting a respectable amount of playing time for the Chicago Cubs.  I adamantly agree with him.  Bryan LaHair is...

  • 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...
