  • 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

    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....
  • Castro deal could provide pitching for Cubs

    Castro deal could provide pitching for Cubs
    The kids got Dale Sveum. The Cubs’ young players believed to be the core of the future didn’t develop the last two years -- in fact, they got worse -- and that sounded like the big reason Theo Epstein whacked his manager. Epstein also...
  • Speaking of Sports: How to fix the broken baseball playoff system & open thread

     
    We'll try this for a few Tuesday mornings to see if there's a comment constituency for regularly scheduled chatter about sports -- pro, college, recreational. Here's some chum for the waters: Major League Baseball's one-game play-in for each league's two....

    Takin' it to the Maddux
    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...
  • What's after Girardi, and then after that?

    There were all kinds of reasons to love Joe Girardi as the next Cubs manager. He had local ties, of course, but his seven years running the Yankees to three division titles and a World Series provided the gravitas. The Cubs wanted him. They were...
  • Samardzija gives Cubs something, but what?

    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

    '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

    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,...
  • Hahn's got some explaining to do

    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...
  • Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    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...
