  • Reading into Sveum's take on Castro

    Reading into Sveum's take on Castro
    It is just me, or does everybody get the feeling that Starlin Castro needs to leave? I could be reading too much into this, but there’s more reading than actual baseball improvement with the guy. There’s more money than actual baseball...
  • Want to see Baez play for Cubs? Just wait ... and wait

    Want to see Baez play for Cubs? Just wait ... and wait
    Turns out, Starlin Castro is the last player the Cubs could afford to get injured. Not that the Cubs are going to win anything this season. In fact, they might not win 70 games. This team is being built to stink again, to trade anyone who has a good...
  • Two plans for Cubs

    Two plans for Cubs
    I love the way the Cubs stories are about the fifth starter’s job, like this one about James McDonald’s injury or this one about Chris Rusin’s four good innings. Here’s the question: Aren’t all Cubs pitchers No. 5...
  • Hahn's poker game with Peavy

    Hahn's poker game with Peavy
    Jake Peavy is scheduled to start Tuesday, which means he is scheduled to be traded before that. That’s the thinking. That’s the rumor. That’s why Peavy packed several extra bags and cleaned out his locker as the White Sox left for a...
  • Someone explain the Sox's plan -- please

    Someone explain the Sox's plan -- please
    Every team in Chicago has a plan. Except the White Sox. The Blackhawks certainly have a plan. They started with a core of young and talented players, surrounded them with depth, hired Hockey Yoda and promoted his son, and put it all in the hands of...
  • Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    Reader Q&A: Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag
    Why don't the Cubs make a push to get Joe Maddon from the Rays? I think he is, by far, the best manager in baseball and is personally worth 10 to 20 wins a year. He works mostly with young players in Tampa Bay, which obviously will be our core for the...
  • Cubs fire Sveum, seek 'spark of a winning culture'

    Cubs fire Sveum, seek 'spark of a winning culture'
    Dale Sveum is out after two seasons as Chicago Cubs manager and the team will seek "a proven leader," president Theo Epstein said Monday. “Today, we made the very difficult decision to relieve Dale Sveum of his duties as Cubs manager," Epstein...
  • For new Cubs manager, youth must be served

    For new Cubs manager, youth must be served
    Firing Dale Sveum is Theo Epstein admitting he made a mistake, but not firing Sveum when the future was dying would’ve been a bigger error. Epstein recently offered a checklist by which Sveum would be evaluated -- stuff such as developing young...

    Rick Renteria to be named Cubs manager
    Rick Renteria, who served the last two seasons as bench coach for the San Diego Padres, will be named later today to succeed the fired Dale Sveum as Chicago Cubs manager, the Tribune confirmed. Renteria, 51, agreed to a three-year contract. He will be...

    From Cubs to Red Sox, a dream trip for Ryan Dempster
    BOSTON — Ryan Dempster spent nine seasons riding the Chicago Cubs' roller coaster, experiencing just about everything one could imagine in a baseball life. During his time in a Cubs uniform, Dempster played for four managers, from Dusty Baker to...
  • Who needs sleep? Not Len Kasper

    Who needs sleep? Not Len Kasper
    Despite the fact that he himself plays Wrigley Field 81 times a year, Cubs play-by-play broadcaster Len Kasper said he hasn't given die-hard Cubs fan and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder any tips ahead of his show Friday. "I don't think I could give...

    Things will be better in 2015*
    Congratulations, you've almost made it to football season. To get you through the last stretch of unwatchable baseball, I'm going to tease you with a special "visions of the future" column because the present is unbearable. WARNING: The future will...
