Carlos Zambrano returned to Wrigley Field, but he won’t be pitching.
Sort of like the way he left.
Now a Miami Marlin, Zambrano said Tuesday it was his fault he was sitting in the visitors dugout in Wrigley Field.
Zambrano, you’ll recall,...

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...

You know Paul, it's not that difficult to figure out the Cubs' problems, despite Sveum's comments on the stats. At key moments in the game -- the key pitch, the key hit, the key play in the field -- the Cubs fail. Their players are simply not quite good...

Dale Sveum must be trying to get fired.

OK, maybe not yet, but the new Chicago White Sox general manager is off to a great start.

The Chicago Cubs agreed to trade Carlos Zambrano to Miami. Ozzie Guillen manages that team, in case you hadn’t heard, so Zambrano will be taking his talents to what is now Mouth Beach.
The deal, of course, will not be official until Zambrano passes...

Late Wednesday night, someone named Tom Hamilton sent me this email with the subject line “And I am a Cubs fan’’:

Before the first game of this year’s White Sox-Cubs series, I asked a question that I’d like to revisit now that we have a result.
Who would go crazier: Cubs runners on Gavin Floyd or the flash mob in Carlos Zambrano’s head?

Tom Ricketts was asked what was wrong with his team that ranked among the worst in baseball, and he answered -- are you sitting down? -- “Nothing. Just a lot of injuries.’'
Nothing? Is he tone deaf?
Just injuries? Try bad. Ryan Dempster...
