    Kerry Wood still has his fastball when it comes to making pitch for charity

    A preview of the top Chicago parties in 2013

    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...

    Hahn's poker game with Peavy
    Jake Peavy is scheduled to start Tuesday, which means he is scheduled to be traded before that. That’s the thinking. That’s the rumor. That’s why Peavy packed several extra bags and cleaned out his locker as the White Sox left for a...

    Someone explain the Sox's plan -- please
    Every team in Chicago has a plan. Except the White Sox. The Blackhawks certainly have a plan. They started with a core of young and talented players, surrounded them with depth, hired Hockey Yoda and promoted his son, and put it all in the hands of...
