  • Spring training: AL East preview

    Go ahead, pick an American League East champion. Lots of people are in love with the Blue Jays, who won the offseason. They probably will be the consensus pick when teams leave Florida. But you wouldn't be nuts to pick the Yankees, Rays or Orioles. You'...
  • Looking at the defenses of the AL East teams

    Looking at the defenses of the AL East teams
    Luckily, they don’t trot out the old “defense wins championship” cliché as much in baseball circles – but there’s no denying there have been teams who improve their ‘D’ and then find increased success. So, as we...
  • Forget playing better, Cubs need to trade better

    Forget playing better, Cubs need to trade better
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum and team president Theo Epstein believe the Cubs will take a big step forward this season, and I’m thinking, I guess losing only 90 games would be a big step. Another 100 losses, however, is easily attainable, don’t...
  • Quick, someone wake Theo and tell him to dump Marmol

    Dale Sveum must be trying to get fired. Or maybe the Cubs manager hates Cubs fans. Or perhaps he’s an agent of evil sent by North Korea’s Kim Jong-un to destroy the Cubs because their legendary ineptitude and continued consignment to a...
  • Q&A with Dennis Eckersley on bullpens, AL East, Orioles and Red Sox

    Q&A with Dennis Eckersley on bullpens, AL East, Orioles and Red Sox
    One of the key questions for the Orioles this season is whether their bullpen can repeat its success from 2012. Bullpens could actually be a deciding factor in a taut American League East. Hall of Fame pitcher and TBS MLB analyst Dennis Eckersley joined...
  • An odd sound coming out of the Marmol mess

    An odd sound coming out of the Marmol mess
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum finally made the move he never should’ve had to make: yanking Carlos Marmol as closer. Sveum never should’ve had to make the move because team president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer should’ve...
  • Chris Dickerson heading to Boston, but who is coming off the Orioles' 25-man roster?

    Chris Dickerson heading to Boston, but who is coming off the Orioles' 25-man roster?
    Last night, I wrote that Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Chris Dickerson would join the Orioles in Boston today. The tweet that Dickerson sent from his personal Twitter account (@CDickerson_PFTP) would also indicate we will see him at Fenway Park tonight....
  • Garza is still here? Why is Garza still here?

    Me, I’d have traded Matt Garza after the first inning in Pittsburgh when he survived a one-out walk and got a magnificent catch from Julio Borbon. Or I might’ve cut the deal to send Garza to (your rotation here) after the second inning...
  • Cubs’ ‘It Gets Better’ video debuts

     
    Cubs manager Mike Quade, pitcher Ryan Dempster and owner Laura Ricketts all make an appearance in the team's ‘It Gets Better' video, which premiered yesterday. Watch the video below:...
  • Chicago Cubs combat anti-gay bullying

     
    As if we Chicagoans needed another reason to love our hometown team, the Cubs have released a video as part of the “It Gets Better” campaign that helps support LGBT youth and combat bullying. Cubs co-owner Laura Ricketts (who is one of the...
  • I hope the Cubs’ video “gets better”

     
    I am a huge advocate for gay rights and for gay marriage, so when the Chicago Cubs came out and said they were going to shoot a video for the “It Gets Better” project, I was gay (in the happy sense).  It only seemed appropriate since Laura...
