  • Rizzo, Castro signs of bad things to come?

    Rizzo, Castro signs of bad things to come?
    It’s never too early for a Cubs fan to give up because it’s never too early for the Cubs to give up. The Cubs were again built to stink in 2014, and boy, did the offense ever live down to that in the opener in Pittsburgh. And here’...
  • A Dear Tom letter

    A Dear Tom letter
    Dear Cubs Fanboy Owner (and you know who you are, Tom Ricketts), The option to move the team out of Wrigley Field remains open. You should’ve done this on Day One. You should’ve thanked everyone for coming, explained how thrilled you and...

  • Cubs find a new way not to have pitching

    Cubs find a new way not to have pitching
    Masahiro Tanaka chose the Yankees over the Cubs. Yoenis Cespedes chose the A’s -- the A’s, do you hear me? -- and not the Cubs a couple years ago. What is Theo Epstein doing wrong? Or maybe it’s Tom Ricketts’ fault,...
  • Cubs pitchers report so they can get traded

    Cubs pitchers report so they can get traded
    Pitchers and catcher report. Those are the four greatest words in baseball, besides “We’ve traded Adam Dunn,’’ I mean. Cubs pitchers and catcher report to spring training Thursday, but I’m wondering, do the Cubs have any...
  • If only there were a 'Dunn Buyers Club'

    If only there were a 'Dunn Buyers Club'
    The blog for people who don’t have all day to read blogs: As an investor in “Dallas Buyers Club,’’ not to mention a cameo as a bartender, Adam Dunn might leave spring training for Sunday’s Academy Awards in Los Angeles. For...
  • Strop was dynamite, so vote Pedro for closer

    Strop was dynamite, so vote Pedro for closer
    Picking through the dumpster that was the Cubs in 2013 -- and 2012, for that matter -- I thought they’d found something on the mound beyond Travis Wood. And that was reliever Pedro Strop, a hard-throwing right-handed reliever acquired from...
  • Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
    Why don't the Cubs make a push to get Joe Maddon from the Rays? I think he is, by far, the best manager in baseball and is personally worth 10 to 20 wins a year. He works mostly with young players in Tampa Bay, which obviously will be our core for the...
  • From Cubs to Red Sox, a dream trip for Ryan Dempster

    BOSTON — Ryan Dempster spent nine seasons riding the Chicago Cubs' roller coaster, experiencing just about everything one could imagine in a baseball life. During his time in a Cubs uniform, Dempster played for four managers, from Dusty Baker to...
  • Reading into Sveum's take on Castro

    Reading into Sveum's take on Castro
    It is just me, or does everybody get the feeling that Starlin Castro needs to leave? I could be reading too much into this, but there’s more reading than actual baseball improvement with the guy. There’s more money than actual baseball...
  • Want to see Baez play for Cubs? Just wait ... and wait

    Turns out, Starlin Castro is the last player the Cubs could afford to get injured. Not that the Cubs are going to win anything this season. In fact, they might not win 70 games. This team is being built to stink again, to trade anyone who has a good...
