Like his bosses, Mike Foltynewicz is a baseball optimist. He can see the Astros rising out of the ashes they find themselves in at the beginning of the Jim Crane era. "In three or four years, we're going to be a fun team,'' said Foltynewicz, a 21-year-...
Go ahead. Get the tar and feathers. Or I'll stack the wood and bring the matches. Not being a Chicagoan by birth, I know I should just stay away from your sentimentality. If you think ketchup on a hot dog is an act of subversion, so be it. I'm not...

Talking baseball while hoping Alshon Jeffery learns to use his size: 1. Yes, the Cubs came close to landing a big fish last week. But now that Anibal Sanchez has re-enlisted with the Tigers, thanks to Mike Ilitch finding a spare $32 million during the...
MESA, Ariz. -- Baseball America listed four Cubs in its Top 100 prospects list, an indication the organization is showing progress in its rebuilding plan. Shortstop Javier Baez is ranked No. 16 while outfielders Albert Almora and Jorge Soler are Nos....
