    Protesting Cubs-Sox

    Sorry, Cubs fans, but this is worse than you thought
    Sorry, Cubs fans. My condolences. Your team is worse than I thought -- whoops, wait a minute, I think another Cub just struck out -- and so is your future. It’s not here yet and won’t be for a long time. Heck, it looks like it’ll be...

    Dear Cubs fans, don't be suckers
    The Cubs have won 12 of their last 16 games. Their starters have an ERA of 1.13 in their last five. The staff itself averaged an earned run a game in the weekend sweep of Arizona. They are playing the kind of baseball we haven’t seen all season...

    What is Tom Ricketts' number?
    As Carlos Marmol rolled through this week with an earned-run average under 1.70 in his previous 12 outings, manager Dale Sveum said he expects Marmol to be the Cubs closer next year. Nope. Sorry. Not buying it. Granted, 1.70 is a nice number number, but...
  • Wonder why Marmol is still a Cub

    Wonder why Marmol is still a Cub
    I don’t know why Carlos Marmol is still a Cub. I don’t know if Marmol knows why he’s still a Cub. Only Theo Epstein knows, and he should know better. Marmol is the European sports car of closers --- finely tuned and destined to cost a...

     The emigrants: Departures for U.S. weaken baseball in Japan
    Bud Selig would love to see a series between the World Series and Japan Series champions. But among the realities is that as problematic as that idea seems now, it might become even less viable in the future. Major League Baseball is lowering the talent...

    Your Morning Phil: Marmol, Floyd, Appel
    Talking baseball while wondering if the Chicago Bears can win without Brian Urlacher: 1. Maybe the Angels knew what they were doing when they tried to get Carlos Marmol. Maybe another good offer will come along for him before too long. Dale Sveum...
