Edwin Jackson gambled, and he won. The question for the Cubs is whether he and Carlos Villanueva will win too much next season? I wouldn't worry about it if I was President Theo Epstein or general manager Jed Hoyer. They still should be sitting pretty...

PITTSBURGH — No, you couldn't have gone ice fishing Wednesday in Pittsburgh. That season has come and gone. It's time for baseball, even if it didn't seem like it at PNC Park, along the banks of the Allegheny River. After a pitch shattered his...

No. 6 Tigers: 25th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Diamondbacks. This not just in: Justin Verlander is a stud. He makes an in-his-prime Richard Gere look like Don Knotts. If he was a guitarist, Eric Clapton would never go on stage...
