    Who needs sleep? Not Len Kasper
    Despite the fact that he himself plays Wrigley Field 81 times a year, Cubs play-by-play broadcaster Len Kasper said he hasn't given die-hard Cubs fan and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder any tips ahead of his show Friday. "I don't think I could give...

    Things will be better in 2015*
    Congratulations, you've almost made it to football season. To get you through the last stretch of unwatchable baseball, I'm going to tease you with a special "visions of the future" column because the present is unbearable. WARNING: The future will...
  • Garza is still here, and I'm wondering why

    It’s Thursday, July 18, and Matt Garza remains a Cub. Fix this, Theo. Change this, Jed. Do the deal, guys. If I were Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, I’d do the deal before Friday, when the Cubs resume their drive for next year’s...

    Hahn's got some explaining to do
    Alex Rios is still with the White Sox, so that’s not good for the Sox or Avisail Garcia. Garcia should be up now. If the right-field headliner in the Jake Peavy trade is that prized, then he ought to be seeing as much major-league pitching as...

    Deal and wait and hope
    We won’t know for maybe three years, but it seems like Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer got a good return for Matt Garza. They certainly got a lot of bodies in the potentially 5-for-1 deal with Texas that was mercifully completed before Garza was...

    Samardzija gives Cubs something, but what?
    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...

    'Bad,' but not bitter
    You know Bill Burr is a hardcore Boston Bruins fan because when he talks about the team, he says, "we." The last time he played the Chicago Theater, in 2011, the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. This time, the Blackhawks got the better of the Bruins. You...

    Dugout confrontation problem: You see how lame Cubs pitchers are
    Two games in Milwaukee, two Cubs starting pitchers get into it with the manager and a coach. One pitcher is overpaid, the other wants to be. Fun. The postgame explanations, of course, were that everybody has a competitive streak and nobody likes losing,...

    Epstein has to know Sveum's number is up
    Everybody clinches something at Wrigley Field. In the last week, the Braves and Pirates clinched a division title and a playoff spot, respectively, while the Cubs clinched the most home losses in team history and the worst attendance since Sammy Sosa...
  • End of the road for Cubs bright spot?

    End of the road for Cubs bright spot?
    One of the brightest spots in what has turned into yet another bleak Cubs season isn't the blue chip first baseman or the erratic $60 million shortstop who tend to get all the headlines. Rather, it's 30-year-old journeyman who has spent more time on the...

    Cubs have one choice: Girardi
    He's got four World Series rings, roots in the Chicago area and experience navigating the allegedly haunted halls of Wrigley Field. And now that Dale Sveum has been mercifully put out to pasture, it's time to bring Joe Girardi home to Clark and Addison....
