  • 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...

    Former Cub Ryne Sandberg finds happiness in Lehigh Valley
    There was still ivy on its walls the last time he put a uniform on in this Midwest city. In fact it was only about two miles away from where Ryne Sandberg was sitting in the first base dugout at Victory Field on Monday afternoon. "It was the old stadium...
  • 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...
  • 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....

    Readers Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    Now that the Cubs have been mathematically eliminated from 2012 and 2013 postseason contention, how bare do you see Theo Epstein stripping the Cubs? Is he going to trade everything of value (Matt Garza, Geovany Soto), pay large chunks of salary (Alfonso...

    Rod Blagojevich gave Cubs' Piniella advice in 2007
    Like any frustrated Cubs fan, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich had his own ideas about how manager Lou Piniella should run the team. The moment came during one tough stretch at the end of May 2007. The Cubs had just lost to the Florida Marlins 9-0, the team's...
  • Getting tired of running in place

    Getting tired of running in place
    Lou Piniella is so conditioned to hearing the same questions after a Cubs' defeat that he begins answering them before they are asked. So after the Cubs botched several scoring opportunities Wednesday night in a 2-1 loss to San Diego, Piniella knew...

    No consistency: Hill, offense in valley again
    Lou Piniella was complaining the other day about the Cubs' penchant for playing well one day and looking helpless the next. "You can't have these hills and valleys we're in," he said. But one night after a 10-run outburst, the Cubs were limited to two...
