Lovable character connected with Chicago as player and broadcaster
Here's how the Cubs and White Sox can make the playoffs.
Theo Epstein kept a straight face at Cubs camp Saturday. That's because he's serious about doing things "The Cub Way" to reverse the curse in Chicago.
If he's after the tough questions with no easy answers, Theo Epstein has come to the right place: Wrigley Field. Remember, Cubs fans: Rome wasn't built in a day.
Gene Wojciechowski has 46 predictions for the 2011 NFL season. Sure to go wrong, you say? He'll be back after the Super Bowl to check how he did.
It's a no-brainer by now: Baseball needs Mark Cuban much more than Mark Cuban needs baseball. The league has no excuse for keeping him from buying the Dodgers.
Carlos Zambrano did it again, pointing the finger of blame at everyone else. Enough is enough already.
Ryne Sandberg played for the Cubs, went into the Hall of Fame as a Cub. He wanted to manage the Cubs, but the Cubs didn't want him, and that makes their parting so tough to take.
The long, cold winter is over, and Opening Day is upon us. At last, we can start to get answers to all these offseason questions. Like, what if our man's predictions are actually right for a change?
Every year it seems Carlos Zambrano stands up and makes the same pledge -- the drama is over ... the slate is clean ... he's a changed man. Do you believe him this time?
The Cubs own the Windy City. Even Ozzie Guillen says so. But with another victory parade, the White Sox could shift the balance of power to the South Side.
Who'd have thunk it? Four days ago, Jay Cutler might have been the most reviled man in Chicago. Now, he's worthy of our sympathy. That's right: We're feeling his pain.
If the NFL were the BCS, we'd go directly to Atlanta-New England in the Super Bowl, Gene Wojciechowski writes. Thankfully, it's not. Let's handicap the final eight.
Ron Santo will certainly miss the Cubs. And Cubs fans will definitely miss him because he was one of them.
The Bears' impressive win over the Eagles is another reason to believe they are for real, Gene Wojciechowski writes.
