    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...

  • 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...

    Tampa focal point of spring training baseball trip

    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...
  • 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....
  • 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...
