  • Crosstown's not so neighborly

    Crosstown's not so neighborly
    Anyone who knows me is aware that I am an unapologetic White Sox fan. At one point in time, I owned T-shirts and jerseys professing my love for the South Siders. That love was tested when I moved to the North Side. I responded to a Craigslist ad about...
  • Ready for spring training

    Ready for spring training
    The power-outage controversy at the Superbowl may live on, but the football season is over. which means it is time to turn to thoughts of spring, and baseball. Later this week, spring training begins for the White Sox, Cubs and Tribune beat writers Mark...
  • Predict the AL East order of finish in 2013

    Predict the AL East order of finish in 2013
    Yes, two bar blogs in two days. It’s Christmastime, I’m feeling the holiday spirit (or holiday spirits, as it were). I wrote a piece last week talking to a scout who briefly broke down the Orioles and the AL East for me. At the time, R....
  • One scout's early take on the 2013 Orioles and the AL East

    One scout's early take on the 2013 Orioles and the AL East
    I talked to a major league scout Friday whose territory is strictly the American League East and whose opinion I really respect. He’s always been pretty spot on with his assessments, so I was curious as to what he thought about what has happened...
  • 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....
  • 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...
  • Orioles head into free agency in a different position from previous years

    Orioles head into free agency in a different position from previous years
    The Orioles head into free agency — which starts in earnest Saturday with free agents permitted to negotiate with all 30 teams for the first time this offseason — in a much different situation than this time last year. Executive vice...

    Pitching Orioles starters in minor league games has plusses and minuses
    With several American League East opponents on the spring schedule, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has chosen to pitch some of his starters in minor league games at Twin Lakes Park. Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen got his work in during a Class-A game Monday....
