Dodger ThoughtsEric Karros is on this year's Hall of Fame ballot, a de facto longshot. (Still, it's one more Hall of Fame ballot than I'll ever get on.) If you read Jay Jaffe's writeup at Baseball Prospectus, the best thing Karros......
Tribune staff reporterThe evaluation period brought mixed results Tuesday night for the White Sox. Jim Thome moved closer to the 500-home run mark. Josh Fields made his first putout in left field. And Gavin Floyd weaved his way through six innings. But the eighth inning...

Tribune staff reporterJim Thome's ascent toward 500 home runs and rookie Danny Richar's continued development highlighted the White Sox's climb out of the American League Central cellar Tuesday night. Thome hit his 493rd career home run, a two-run shot, and Richar added a...
Tribune staff reporterPaul Konerko would be the first to admit he has a pretty hard head. But not even Konerko could have imagined a curveball bounced off his noggin could change the complexion of a ballgame, if not a season.After Cubs starter Kerry Wood hit him in the...
Tribune baseball reporterMaybe the worst-case scenario has run its course with the Cubs. Todd Hundley almost was thrown out at the plate advancing from second base on Alex Gonzalez's double off the right-field scoreboard. He had gone back to tag up, then had to hustle to keep...
Tribune staff reporterManager Don Baylor said he is "embarrassed" and he has "had it up to here" with the Cubs' shoddy performances after Sunday's 13-4 loss. His players, for the most part, said it's early yet. Does that mean the level of play could get worse? One of the...

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 staff reporterMark Prior was in no way comparing himself to Curt Schilling or Randy Johnson. But after the Cubs' 21-year-old rookie finished the first complete game of his professional career on Sunday, a 4-1 victory over Colorado, he had this to say about his 13-...
Tribune staff reporterThe condition of his right elbow, Jon Lieber insists, is not the problem. He swears it's not the reason he is winless in his last seven starts. "It's being able to make pitches," he said. Lieber did that until the seventh inning Monday night. Then...
Mark Grace went hitless in four at-bats Sunday for Arizona, yet he was partly responsible for shortening Cubs starter Matt Clement's workday. Clement was removed with one out in the sixth inning because his pitch count was 121. In Clement's 28-pitch...
