Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Kevin Gregg is out as the team’s closer, following a spectacularly awful 4-run 9th inning last night against the San Diego Padres. Manager Lou Piniella said[Read More…]
It’s easy to blame this one on Kevin Gregg (and I do), but once again the offense failed to do anything. If the Cubs continue to fade away, this season[Read More…]
That’s because Mark “the Employee” Prior is about to be released from his minor league contract with the San Diego Padres. So much promise, so much athletic ability, and so[Read More…]
OMG Jake Peavy! OMG Chicago! OMG… meh. It’s the White Sox, and the Cubs haven’t really even been remotely interested in half a year. The White Sox have acquired 2007[Read More…]

Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago White Sox – Recap – May 21, 2009 – ESPN. Butt = kicked. Oh, and on the same day as Peavy said he’d rather stay on[Read More…]
Jake Peavy rejected his proposed trade to the White Sox earlier today. And there was much rejoicing. The two teams had a deal in place whereby the White Sox would[Read More…]
