    Cubs position analysis: Castro making strides

    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

    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...

    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, then 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
    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...

    Your morning Phil: Silva, Dempster, Milledge
    Talking baseball while saying goodbye to Elizabeth Taylor: 1. There's nothing harder for baseball managers and executives at this time of the year than considering tomorrow as well as today. These guys are held to such a high level of accountability...
  • Opening day at Wrigley Field

    Opening day at Wrigley Field
    The rain held off enough to start Friday's home opener on time, and a game-time temperature of 41 degrees was warm enough for most Cubs fans to deal with. But many in the crowd of 41,358 left by the seventh inning of a 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh, and the...

    Losing to the Pirates shows how much better the Cubs pitching needs to be
    I didn’t expect the Cubs to win 90 games this season, but I sure didn’t expect them to blow a series to the pathetic Pirates, a team they should’ve swept when you think about it because you have to sweep bad teams if you’re going...
