Tribune staff reporterOn his first day at spring training, Greg Maddux had to answer questions about whether this could be his final season. After improving to 3-0 Monday night with a brilliant outing in the Cubs' 4-1 win over the Dodgers, the question may now be whether...
The Associated PressJuan Pierre hit a go-ahead single in a three-run seventh inning Sunday and the Cubs beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 in what was likely Dusty Baker's final game as manager. The Cubs rallied from an early 4-0 deficit and finished 66-96, in last place in...
Special to the TribuneIn the end, they don't ask how, just how many. So though the Cubs' 4-3 victory over Arizona on Friday will not be remembered as one of baseball's classic come-from-behind, last-inning triumphs, it was their fifth win in the last seven games in their...
Tribune staff reporterWith the wind blowing in at 15 m.p.h. and perennially rebuilding Pittsburgh in town, everything was in place for Mark Prior to dominate Thursday as the Cubs opened their second-half schedule. Prior did the expected, pitching the Cubs to a 5-1 victory...

Tribune baseball reporterOutside of being, say, Barry Bonds' public relations man or one of the guys who collects urine samples, there aren't many jobs in baseball worse than the ones Ryan Dempster and Bobby Jenks have. Closer—as in last one out the door after a fire or...
Tribune staff reporterManager Dusty Baker said after Friday night's 14-inning triumph that perhaps "the worm has turned" for the Cubs. Whether or not that's the case, there's little doubt they have been playing much better, as evidenced by Saturday's 8-5 victory over St....
Tribune staff reporterFrom 1876 to 2005, no team had swept a season series from the Cubs. But San Diego became the first with a 7-0 record this season. Now it appears lightning might strike twice. Atlanta edged the Cubs 2-1 on Sunday at Turner Field for its sixth straight...

Tribune staff reporterQuestions about Mark Prior's health surfaced again Thursday after another shaky outing in an 8-6 loss to Milwaukee, but the answers were as elusive as Prior himself. Whether Prior will make his next start is up in the air, and the possibility of Prior...
