The rain kind of helped, but not enough.
Month: June 2011
Last week, Chicago Cubs’ owner Tom Ricketts took to the media to defend his team’s manager, general manager, and finances. But many Cubs fans wish he’d said something else.
Carlos Pena and Kosuke Fukudome, among others, figure to be the subject of trade rumors.
Ten years and $300 million for a 31-year-old was already risky enough. But a 31-year-old with a bum wing?
Ozzie’s kick, Greg Maddux’s future with the Cubs, Carlos Zambrano’s love, and the Cubs’ community service feature today.
The Cubs don’t have much to play for, but BAM!
The comparison to Derrek Lee is inevitable, and the wisdom of Pujols’ next contract is called into question.
Chicago Cubs starter Ryan Dempster figures to be the subject of many trade rumors in the next month or so. But the question remains: would the Cubs even consider dealing him?
Randy Wells is feeling good, Mike Quade doesn’t seem to know how bad the Cubs are, Chris Carpenter is a future closer, and Carlos Zambrano probably won’t blow up again at the Cell this year.
Byrd’s recovery is going well, and he could be rehabbing in Iowa in as little as a week.
This just in: the Cubs are not better than the Yankees.
One source says the Yankees are heavily scouting Zambrano for a trade. Another says “it’s all b.s.” The truth usually lies somewhere in the middle.
Ken Rosenthal gets quotes from Carlos Zambrano during yesterday’s game, Mike Quade doesn’t like ties, and Carlos Pena is a freight train.
The Cubs will never win three in a row again for the rest of time.
The Yankees new pitching coach sounds like he would mind working with Z again. Doug Davis’ start, Wrigley’s noise, Cubs/Sox popularity, and premium seats also feature today.
Carlos Zambrano says he will not use his no-trade rights to block a trade if the Cubs decide to move him.
Dare I be a total homer and simply say, “go, Cubs, go”?
The Yankees’ pitching staff has fallen on hard times, and it looks like they’re considering making a move for Carlos Zambrano.
Fay Vincent hates Mark Cuban, Mike Quade loves Tom Ricketts, Mark Riggins doesn’t mind criticism, Joe Girardi loves Chicago, and you may love the ‘Moneyball’ trailer.
