Wait, Tom Ricketts is handing out books to the new Cubs on the pride of the most futile team in sports. Seriously? Wasn’t “Year One’’ all about denying the stench of the past? But if the book includes the pride in being ready...
Hello, and sorry to bother you on this holiday weekend. I don’t usually show up here today, and certainly not during a long weekend, but Cubs Fanboy Owner Tom Ricketts just did something so dumb that I couldn’t control myself. Here’s...

This seems like the perfect hire. The best thing ever. The smartest move you could dream of. But it’s the Cubs. So, it will turn into a disaster. That’s what the Cubs do. Somehow, some way at some time, the hiring of Boston general manager...
The White Sox are five games out of first place in the AL Central and just lost five of seven at home against divisional opponents. Paul Konerko says his Sox don’t look like a division-winning team right now. Rank honesty about a team playing pretty...
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. Who would go crazier: Cubs runners on Gavin Floyd or the flash mob in Carlos Zambrano’s head? Answer:...
Maybe it’s me, but it seems silly to hire an interim general manager to replace your interim general manager to hold the spot for your desired and reportedly signed general manager who can’t be your general manager officially because you can&...

Mike Quade came to the conclusion that the Cubs are no longer contending. Quite the epiphany when you’ve hovering around 20 games under .500 for months, huh? Quade claimed the Cubs were in position to get back in the race if they had a good run...
It has gotten to the point where you hope that Tom Ricketts is just getting some bad advice in delivering his message. Because after Ricketts’ comments Wednesday evening about his team that is competing to own the worst record in baseball and about...
I don’t know why it came up now, maybe because we’re less than a week away from interleague play, but there talk of baseball realignment. Trib baseball colleague Phil Rogers details a lot of it here, but the general idea is to create two 15-...
