Most Important Series of the Year?

Is this weekend's 4 game set with the Cards the most important series of the year?  I think that it is the make or break series for the Cubs.  If they win all four, they will be the prohibitive...

Padilla or Glavine?

The Rangers have placed Padilla on waivers.  The Cubs claim him, the Cubs have him.  No dickering around with a "no-trade" clause or negotiating for players.  The Braves released Glavine even...

The Washington Nationals had yet another Corner OF go down to injury yesterday.   First Wily Mo Pena and now Elijah Dukes.   Do they now become a "trade partner" for the Cubs?    They also need...

Derrek Lee - Good First Baseman or Myth

Driving home tonight I heard the hosts on WSCR proudly proclaiming how having Derrek Lee back will be of great help as he will save lots of A Ram errors. And, initially, I said, hey that's right....

Most Overrated and Underrated Cubs

We have just concluded a rather interesting series on one very smart Cub fan's take on the top 100 Cubs of all time.   Well written and well supported.  That being said, often fans will overrate a...

Sad News

ESPN is reporting the death of Juan Uribe in a car crash while at home in the Dominican Republic.  This is sad news, and I think all Chicago fans should pause for a moment to remember him.  When...
