With the hot start and the offense progressing, do you see the Bears initiating contract extension talks with Jay Cutler before the end of season? -- @Benyaminr from Twitter

Please, please, please tell me there's a chance the Sox can get rid of Adam Dunn before next year. I can't take another year of watching him strike out. There's a reason that he's never been on a playoff team -- because he's on the team! He may be a...

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.

Coming out of spring training the assumption was that Jeff Mathis had won the starting job behind the plate for Angels, Bobby Wilson would be his backup and Hank Conger would be in triple A if the Angels hadn't placed......
