  • Royals' template is worth tracing

    'Cubs (stupid) Way:' Jackson keeping his job
    The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): Jose Veras closing games for the Cubs or Edwin Jackson starting them? At least the Cubs are willing to look at other closer options. Veras can just sit there while the likes of Hector Rondon, Pedro...

    Cubs find a new way not to have pitching

    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...

    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
    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...

    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...
