A pitching staff that included Ryan Dempster, Paul Maholm, Matt Garza, Jeff Samardzija and Carlos Marmol went belly up in 2012, despite prolonged stretches of dominance from those four starters and the closer. The Cubs finished 24th among all major...
The Cubs couldn’t find a way to replace Aramis Ramirez at third base this year, and have to go back to the drawing board in 2013. They tried Ian Stewart, Luis Valbuena and Josh Vitters for the most part, with Joe Mather filling in occasionally, and...

Perhaps Anthony Rizzo’s best moment as a Cub wasn’t seen by fans at the ballpark or watching on TV. Amazingly, he didn’t even have a bat in his hand at the time. That moment of truth occurred in the Cubs’ clubhouse in Phoenix...
I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...

Sun Sentinel columnistThe Marlins weren’t the only team that considered giving Adam Greenberg an opportunity to complete his remarkable comeback. Matt Liston, the documentary filmmaker and organizer of the One At Bat campaign, told me after Tuesday’s unforgettable...
After a wild — and wild-card determining — final day of the six-month-long baseball season, we finally know the winners and who will play whom when and where. Wow is the only way to describe what happened in the 162nd game. For the A's, it...

With the Cardinals in town this weekend — and well on their way to another playoff berth — it is a good time to consider the fate of two old and proud franchises. One is trying to go someplace. That, of course, would be the Cubs. The other is...
