Double WGN for your pleasure: television and radio today.
Month: March 2013
The 33-year-old starter is set to now be a free agent, and looks like he might actually be able to contribute this year, but would either side see a fit?
It must be the end of Spring Training, because the narrative is getting crazy.
Carlos Villanueva takes down Yovani Gallardo. That’s swell.
MLB is suing the clinic in Miami tied to PED allegations involving, among others, Ryan Braun. The goal, presumably, is to get at the documents MLB needs.
It’s a regular season lineup for the Cubs today, and the game is on WGN-TV.
The top surprises and scandals are all about one man: Sammy Sosa.
No huge surprises today, though the bullpen competition is down to just four guys, and the bench is mostly set.
The first week of May is looking like the earliest reasonable return range for Garza, assuming no more setbacks.

One of the best in the biz takes on one of the best in the biz.
Jeff Samardzija is going to hit 20 homers this year. Projected.
A night game? In the Spring? At least this one’s on MLB.tv and WGN Radio, and replayed on MLBN. Also, Javier Baez is starting.
The Cubs lost to the Dodgers today, but you were watching basketball anyway.
Obsessive Wrigley Renovation Watch: Alderman Tunney Doesn’t Like Playing the Villain (Also: Meeting Details)

Rumor time … Bruce Levine chatted this week, and … (1) Detroit has not been, to date, interested in Carlos Marmol (which makes sense, given the very reason they’ve been on a quest for a new closer – Bruce had previously reported that they were interested, but he was told that was incorrect); (2) it’s […]
Forgive me if I have trouble believing this one. The Cubs “smeared” Tom Tunney, and suddenly a deal is falling through.
McLeod says Rivero hasn’t pitched competitively in a year, so it’s going to be a process getting him back up to speed.
