    Ricketts to blame for Wood
    It became obvious several years ago that when the final chapter of the Kerry Wood story was written, it wasn't going to have a happy ending. An ugly last act, however, could have been avoided. I'm not going to blame Wood. Nor will I point the finger at...

    Valbuena again at third base for Cubs vs. Red Sox
    Red Sox fans gathered early outside Wrigley Field Friday, perhaps hoping to invade the park much like Tigers fans did the day before. Cubs' officials were still watering the outfield grass Friday morning, hoping to re-grow grass that was browned from...
