The Cubs were built to lose 100 games, so what was with the obsession to avoid it?
The actual issue is losing 100 games and still not getting the top pick in the draft. So Cub.
I can understand players not wanting to be a part of 100 losses. I...

Perhaps Anthony Rizzo’s best moment as a Cub wasn’t seen by fans at the ballpark or watching on TV.
Amazingly, he didn’t even have a bat in his hand at the time.
That moment of truth occurred in the Cubs’ clubhouse in Phoenix...

The Cubs wanted Starlin Castro to be a model citizen, improve his fielding, add a little power and use his speed more often this year.
Castro did all of those things to some degree and ultimately was rewarded with a seven-year, $60 million deal, with a...

I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...

Now that the Cubs have been mathematically eliminated from 2012 and 2013 postseason contention, how bare do you see Theo Epstein stripping the Cubs? Is he going to trade everything of value (Matt Garza, Geovany Soto), pay large chunks of salary (Alfonso...

How did Ryan Dempster convince his Cubs teammates to wear tuxedos and man the blackjack and craps tables at his charity event Wednesday, just hours after the team’s game against the Atlanta Braves?
I’m not exactly sure. But whatever he did,...

Dear Mr. and Mrs. NATO protesters,
If you want to decry something that you think offends humanity, skip McCormick Place this weekend and head to Wrigley Field.
If you’re looking to bring attention to senseless policies, then the Cubs-White Sox...

Yes, there also was a baseball game Friday. Amid all the hoopla of the NATO visit, rumors of President Obama visiting Wrigley Field and Kerry Wood picking this weekend to retire, the City Series finally got to take center stage.
The Cubs and White Sox...

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Go ahead, Theo Epstein.
Make that splash your fans have been waiting for since you were hired. Trade Starlin Castro for Justin Upton.
Javier Baez has your back.
At 22, Castro is far from a polished product. But he's also...

Sorry, Cubs fans. My condolences.
Your team is worse than I thought -- whoops, wait a minute, I think another Cub just struck out -- and so is your future.
It’s not here yet and won’t be for a long time. Heck, it looks like it’ll be...

From no-trade clauses to eminently tradable contracts.
That’s part of Theo Epstein’s massive remaking of the Cubs: retaining talent while also retaining the flexibility to deal that same talent.
Witness Starlin Castro’s new deal. It...
