Taking a quick break from the Stanley Cup Final to vent about the Cubs and White Sox:

In fact, he’s doing nothing, period.
I think he got the idea...

Kerry Wood got his day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, and he spent part of it lobbying for the Cubs to bring Sammy Sosa back to the organization as something.

The Cubs still had their regular left-handed lineup available, the one they would’ve used at any other point in the season, so how did they almost get no-...

Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer seem to have a problem. A big problem. The Cubs’ top two baseball wonks appear to have developed a hole where their credibility and integrity used to be.
Understand, credibility and integrity rank pretty high in a...
