    Bonifacio doing his job atop Cubs' batting order
    Emilio Bonifacio went 3-for-4 Sunday as he recorded his ninth multihit game at home this season. "He had some great at-bats today," manager Rick Renteria said. "He has done a nice job filling in with the role he has got since spring. I think (other)...
  • Once again, clumsy Cubs are politically tone deaf

    Once again, clumsy Cubs are politically tone deaf
    The Cubs are the worst team in the majors and haven't scored a run in 20 innings but Wednesday's low point of the season had little to do with baseball. Mayor Rahm Emanuel embarrassed the Cubs behind the microphone as badly as any pitcher has on the...
  • Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
    By trading any player with value, isn't Epstein lengthening the timeline to "sustained success"? Does Epstein lack understanding of pitchers?  Pitchers frequently peak later than position players.   Although Jeff Samardzija is older than 25, his best...
  • White Sox ahead of Cubs in rebuilding race

     White Sox ahead of Cubs in rebuilding race
    In a chair at the end of a dark hallway behind the visitors' dugout at Wrigley Field sat the brightest star in Chicago baseball. White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu wore a red-and-white-striped apron as a barber gave him a pregame buzz Monday, three...
  • Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
    I've noticed over the past few years, it seems the Cubs are the only team that continues to deploy a left and right-handed lineup card depending on the starting pitcher. To me, that seems like it would be hard for anyone to get in a groove. Why not just...
  • Thanks, Derek Jeter. We won't miss you.

    Thanks, Derek Jeter. We won't miss you.
    It has been a wonderful week to say hi and goodbye to Derek Jeter. He's in town for the last time, playing games against the Sox after finishing up with the Cubs. I guess I'm glad I'll never see him again. And sad that, oh, I don't know. We never had...

    Sports stars go to bat for Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch
    Harry Caray's Restaurant Group once again teamed up with sports stars from the past and present (and a former “Desperate Housewives” actor) for the newest addition to the Harry Caray family. The Blackhawks' Patrick Kane, former Blackhawk...
  • Why the 2014 Cubs are like 'The Office'

    I'd love to have the luxury of comparing the Cubs to a show like "The Walking Dead," or any popular scripted drama for that matter. Alas, in terms of quality, drama and critical acclaim, the Cubs are more like a sitcom. A sitcom on its way up, no doubt,...
  • Rizzo, Castro signs of bad things to come?

    Rizzo, Castro signs of bad things to come?
    It’s never too early for a Cubs fan to give up because it’s never too early for the Cubs to give up. The Cubs were again built to stink in 2014, and boy, did the offense ever live down to that in the opener in Pittsburgh. And here’...
  • Sighting: Mark Prior attends Kerry Wood's fundraiser

    Sighting: Mark Prior attends Kerry Wood's fundraiser
    The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Jeff Samardzija were on hand for Kerry Wood’s Woody’s Winter Warm-Up fundraiser Friday at Harry Caray’s Tavern at Navy Pier, but it was former Cub Mark Prior who guests seemed most...
  • Ricketts still getting outplayed

    Ricketts still getting outplayed
    The issue of the Wrigley Field renovations came up at the Cubs Convention last weekend. Or I should say, the lack of renovations came up. “I think you know what the holdup is,’’ said Crane Kenney, the team wonk in charge of...
