    Memo to Theo: Hire Francona
    If Theo Epstein and his former Boston front-office gang were brought in because they helped end a long World Series drought for a team in an old, revered ballpark in a big city with big pressures, then continue the process with the guy who did it in the...
  • 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...
  • Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...

    Cubs position analysis: Castro making strides
    The Cubs wanted Starlin Castro to be a model citizen, improve his fielding, add a little power and use his speed more often this year. Castro did all of those things to some degree and ultimately was rewarded with a seven-year, $60 million deal, with a...

    Power rankings: No. 10 Red Sox
    Bobby Valentine has managed in the World Series and won a championship in Japan but he never has taken a major league team to a division title in 15 seasons as a manager. It's not likely to happen this year either. A year after widespread indifference...

    Cubs now worse; but organization better, at least in theory
    The Cubs are not a better team today without Ryan Dempster, Paul Maholm, Reed Johnson and Geovany Soto. They would be even worse without Matt Garza, and that still might happen by the Aug. 30 waiver deadline. Either way, though, the Cubs organization is...

    Newly acquired Lopez will start Monday for Cubs

  • 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,┬áthen the hire is more “Who?’’ than “Wow!’’ The Cubs already made their “Wow!’’ hire. Theo...
  • If you're going to showcase Zambrano, then really make it a show

    If you're going to showcase Zambrano, then really make it a show
    Carlos Zambrano is pitching well enough to get traded. But apparently he has acted badly enough in an embarrassing past and has pitched inconsistently enough this embarrassing year to remain a Cub. How badly has he acted and how inconsistently has he...
  • Campana gets a shot at leadoff spot

    In an effort to ignite the lineup, manager Mike Quade batted Tony Campana in the leadoff spot as the Cubs faced the Pirates Saturday. Campana had appeared in eight games and started his first game Thursday against the Mets, when he went 3-for-4. The...
