     Phil Rogers' MLB power rankings
    1. Dodgers (2): Matt Kemp may yet provide a lift for the team that went 42-12 in July and August. One thing they're not doing is hitting for power. Their 19 homers in August were the third fewest among NL teams. 2. Tigers (1): Miguel Cabrera remains the...

    Comparing Cubs' and White Sox's prospects
    With the White Sox back to .500, maybe they can salvage our summer. The spring has been a bust, and never has there been a City Series matchup generating so little enthusiasm in Chicago. But there is some good news for the baseball wise. That's this:...

    Reasons to enjoy Chicago baseball
    Chicago now has digested a month of uninspiring baseball on both sides of town. The reaction has me puzzled. "It's going to be a long summer," seems to be the most common response from fans and the media. No, it isn't. The Cubs and White Sox are on...
