Mike Quade must hate this. The guy from a Chicago suburb who worked his way up the Cubs’ chain finally gets a shot at his dream job, and his best starter is an idiot.
A modified version of The Full Zambrano was on display in the retch-inducing 7-...

Carlos Zambrano apologized for telling the truth. Carlos Marmol said everything's fine.
Yes. Well. Except for the obvious fact that the Cubs still play like a Triple-A team and still are embarrassing. So Cub.
Zambrano went off on the Cubs on Sunday...

Drawing conclusions on the first day can be dangerous, but hey, it’s what we do.
And so, the conclusion from the introductory news conference for the Cubs’ new general manager and new scouting and player development honcho Tuesday is that...

Rodriguez in bad spot
Down goes Bob Geren! Who will follow him out the door?
It's possible that there will be no other midseason firings, as an overall period of stability should follow the rash of changes in 2010. But...

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!

Jake Peavy can dominate opposing hitters as well as he can dominate the disabled list.
For 90 pitches or so, anyway.
Peavy said his start against the Cubs on Wednesday night was a struggle, and not just with catcher A.J. Pierzynski, whatever that was....

What we learned from City Series, Part One:
A.J. Pierzynski is good on triples until 2013.
Pierzynski is good on (bleeping) off teammates until then, too.
Starlin Castro is money.
Mark Buehrle remains an Interleague Hall-of-Famer.
Brent Morel knows...

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...

The White Sox are five games out of first place in the AL Central and just lost five of seven at home against divisional opponents. Paul Konerko says his Sox don’t look like a division-winning team right now. Rank honesty about a team playing pretty...

After switching his lineup almost on a daily basis in the first half, Cubs manager Mike Quade goes with the same lineup Friday that produced a 2-0 lead into the ninth inning against the Marlins the night before.
Kosuke Fukudome leads off, with All-Star...

Cubs manager Mike Quade said that while Carlos Marmol remains the closer, “we’ve got to get the guy fixed and back to who he is.”
Marmol said Friday, one day after blowing his seventh save that “we have to figure it out” and...
