  1. 5 for '14: Who will be the surprise?

    Jesse Rogers

    The surprise of the 2014 Chicago Cubs isn't even on the roster yet. And, no, it's not top prospect Javier Baez. Baez is no surprise anyway, but a player who doesn't make any of the top prospects lists does qualify. Right-handed pitcher Kyle Hendri...

  4. 5 for '14: Will Renteria's optimism waver?

    Jesse Rogers

    The job in front of new Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria is even tougher than what his predecessor, Dale Sveum, faced. And as we know, it didn't work out well for Sveum, who was dismissed after two years in charge. The ever-optimistic nature of ...

  5. 5 for '14: When will top prospects arrive?

    Jesse Rogers

    MESA, Ariz. -- All the losing the Chicago Cubs have endured over the past few seasons is about to pay off. At least in a small way. If all goes right in 2014, fans should finally be able to see some of the team's heralded prospects, some of whom h...

  6. 5 for '14: Samardzija still a Cub on Aug. 1?

    Jesse Rogers

    MESA, Ariz. -- It's the question that keeps getting asked, but soon enough it's going to have to have an answer. In some ways we're already in extra innings, as Jeff Samardzija could have been traded by now considering there's been no movement in con...

  7. 5 for '14: Will Rizzo and Castro rebound?

    Jesse Rogers

    MESA, Ariz. -- They return as the cornerstones of the Chicago Cubs' rebuilding strategy. Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro are the faces of the major league team now more than ever. Most of the veterans have been dismissed in recent years in favor ...

  8. Road still winding for Javier Baez

    Doug Padilla

    CHICAGO -- One day after Chicago Cubs top prospect Javier Baez hit a home run on his first Double-A swing, the moment was still a topic of conversation at Wrigley Field. Manager Dale Sveum, though, was keeping it all in perspective, saying he had ...

  9. Back-to-back ailments for White Sox

    Doug Padilla

    CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox are currently dealing with two back issues as Adam Dunn will continue to play through one, while Tyler Fowers will miss a third day in the lineup with his own. Dunn had just started to turn things around on the mos...

  10. So far, less than best plenty for Sox

    Doug Padilla

    CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox are not concerned with how it looks, only that the desired result is achieved. If that sounds a lot like the "Winning Ugly" season of 1983, well that's only fitting since the White Sox wore those old red, white and...

  11. Cubs may start to answer questions

    Jesse Rogers

    PITTSBURGH -- Amidst the tiring back-and-forth of the Wrigley Field renovation project (including a silly dalliance with the city of Rosemont), a greater interest in their minor leaguers and the promise of the upcoming No. 2 overall pick in the draft...

  12. Sox again could be better than sum of parts

    Bruce Levine

    CHICAGO -- The element of human connectivity on every ball club is something baseball prognosticators forget to apply when they make their predications for a new season. The Chicago White Sox were picked by one sports magazine to win just 69 games...

  13. Konerko likes White Sox's chances

    Doug Padilla

    CHICAGO -- Heading into what could be his final season on the South Side, Paul Konerko is thinking more about team success than the end of a personal era. Guys like A.J. Pierzynski and Kevin Youkilis are gone, but Konerko doesn't expect a drop off...

  14. Cubs season preview: Bench

    Jesse Rogers

    The Chicago Cubs could actually have a very productive bench in 2013. Final roster guys who will only get limited at-bats are never a sure bet, but considering the Cubs could employ up to two platoons (in right field and third base) it means the non-...

  15. White Sox season preview: Bench

    Doug Padilla

    The "savvy-veteran" tag won't exactly qualify when talking about the Chicago White Sox bench this season. Dewayne Wise, who will serve as the fourth outfielder and main left-handed bat off the bench, actually fits that bill, but it doesn't really...

  16. Cubs season preview: Outfield

    Jesse Rogers

    The Chicago Cubs outfield is where things could come up short for the team this season. There is some hope out there but even if Alfonso Soriano, David DeJesus and Nate Schierholtz reasonably max out, they don't compare to other outfields around the ...

  17. White Sox season preview: Outfield

    Doug Padilla

    Take a look around the Chicago White Sox outfield because it probably won't be the same after this season. Fanned out from left to right will be Dayan Viciedo, Alejandro De Aza and Alex Rios, back to take the field together on Opening Day for the ...
