The Cubs’ 2013 season has been over for months --- since last year, actually --- so it would seem there’s nothing to see here.
Unless you view this as part of the 2015 spring training, long rumored to be the year the Cubs finally stop...

And then order was restored. All was calm. They worked counts, came up with some timely hits, made no real miscues.
It hardly hurt any that the Dodgers had their hottest pitcher – nope, not Clayton Kershaw – on the mound, but they did more...

Anthony Rizzo was moved back to the third spot in the Cubs’ lineup against the Dodgers on Monday night. He went 1-for-4 and grounded into a double play. Inspiring, no?

MIAMI — Put this Marlins loss on Juan Pierre, he's willing to take it.
The Marlins had embattled Cubs closer Carlos Marmol on the ropes Thursday, working men onto first and second with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth.

It appears we have a job opening in Chicago.
With Brian Urlacher's retirement official, I am afraid that we need to officially post "the guy who owns Chicago" job on Craigslist.
This is a tough one, because we can't just pass it out to anyone. Past...

Let the Joe Girardi talk begin. Good luck. First off, you're not going to get him, Theo Epstein. The Yankees are going to beat you to him, sorry.
I love Epstein's optimism. He says the perception around the league is the Cubs are coming, and coming...
