    Kerry Wood still has his fastball when it comes to making pitch for charity
    When popular athletes retire, charity work can become a double-edged sword. On one hand, they have more time to dedicate to their cause that they didn't have when they were playing games and training. On the other, they may not have the same star power...

    Sighting: Guess who crashed the Pippens' party?
    Scottie Pippen and Larsa Pippen were overshadowed Tuesday at their own party by another celebrity, but the NBA Hall of Famer and his wife shouldn't feel too bad. The star who stole the spotlight at the Chicago Bulls Charities and Bright Pink benefit in...

    Mayor: Goat's head at Wrigley 'speaks for itself'
    Mayor Rahm Emanuel said today that a goat's head dropped off at Wrigley Field is no laughing matter, but tell that to Cubs players. "Come up with something original," scoffed Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija, noting that the billy goat curse against the team...
  • Learning the Campana and Soriano lessons

    Learning the Campana and Soriano lessons
    Two of the biggest stories in Cubs camp Monday involved Tony Campana and Alfonso Soriano. The former is leaving, while the latter would do so only grudgingly, and both represent object lessons for Cubs fans and management. Actually, Campana and...
  • Vegas favors a Michigan-Louisville national championship game

     
    It's April Fool's Day, but there's no foolin' around in Vegas where sports wagering is at a feverish pitch with the start of baseball season and the NCAA tournament now down to its Final Four. Vegas likes Michigan, slightly, over Syracuse and Louisville...
  • Reader's Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag

    Reader's Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    Baseball has stats for everything. Has anybody figured out the Cubs' team ERA in the eighth inning? It's gotta be in the teens. Ken, Portland, Ore.   Not quite. The Cubs had a 5.42 ERA in eighth innings as of July 10, with an .818 OPS. Not good. But ERA-...

    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...
  • Rizzo sounds as soft as his batting average

    Rizzo sounds as soft as his batting average
    Anthony Rizzo was moved back to the third spot in the Cubs’ lineup against the Dodgers on Monday night. He went 1-for-4 and grounded into a double play. Inspiring, no? But thank goodness his ego has been properly massaged. In the five games...
  • Nowhere for Chicago baseball to hide

    Nowhere for Chicago baseball to hide
    First off, some very good news. As of today, there are about 35 days until football preseason games get started. 35 days! That's a walk in the park! Heck, CEOs go on vacation for 35 days! Together, you and I can do this. Because the bad news is...

    Things will be better in 2015*
    Congratulations, you've almost made it to football season. To get you through the last stretch of unwatchable baseball, I'm going to tease you with a special "visions of the future" column because the present is unbearable. WARNING: The future will...
  • Who's the next Urlacher?

    Who's the next Urlacher?
    It appears we have a job opening in Chicago. With Brian Urlacher's retirement official, I am afraid that we need to officially post "the guy who owns Chicago" job on Craigslist. This is a tough one, because we can't just pass it out to anyone. Past...
