MESA, Ariz. — There are 62 players in Cubs camp this spring, and every one of them has a story. But as in almost every camp in Arizona and Florida, a few players fit into the same basic profile: the unknown prospect trying to open some eyes, the...
WrigleyvilleThe MLB Trade Deadline has officially passed and Jim Hendry and the Chicago Cubs only managed to make one move by trading Kosuke Fukudome. The relative inactivity will most likely (and hopefully) be the end of Jim Hendry as we know him. Fans were...
Tribune staff reporterOn a peculiar Saturday in Philadelphia, the Cubs had two runners thrown out at the plate, stranded eight on base, looked clueless on a suicide-squeeze play and gave up six two-out runs in the seventh after scoring six in the top of the inning. The end...
Tribune staff reporterCarlos Zambrano is one of only three players on the Cubs' active roster who faced Florida in the 2003 National League Championship Series, a time when the team's future was seemingly as bright as the stars. Zambrano started the potential series...
Tribune staff reporterHe doesn't want your sympathy. And it doesn't sound as if he'll get it at Wrigley Field any time soon. No, LaTroy Hawkins is intent on pursuing his career on his terms, with no particular desire to avoid or deal with the boos that seem to greet him in...
Cal Ripken's first major-league hit came against Dennis Lamp of the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 16, 1981. His last hit came against Frank Castillo of the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Oct. 5, 2001. Ripken finished his career with 3,184...

While Paul Sullivan takes a week off to loaf, here are your responses to his request on how the Cubs can reach the World Series (insert joke here). Oh yeah, no Mike Lowell trades allowed per Mr. Sullivan's rules. Next week, we're back to the regular Q&A,...
Tribune staff reporterSunday was one of those hot, sticky days Chicagoans were thinking about early last winter while shoveling out their parking spaces and saving them with old, beat-up lawn furniture. Summertime means baseball in Chicago, and no matter what the status of...
Tribune baseball expert Phil Rogers has picked an All-City team the last five years to kick off the Cubs-Sox interleague series. It's fair to say that Phil's selections haven't always hit it off with the public — seems there's disagreement about who ought...
Tribune staff reporterAfter a team goes from bad to worse, what comes next? The answer is Monday night's 11-1 loss to the Marlins, which qualifies as one of the Cubs' sorriest showings in a season full of pitiful efforts. At least there were few who cared enough to witness...
