In a perfect world, Brett Jackson would be the Cubs’ starting center fielder for 2013 and years to come. That was certainly the idea when Jackson was brought up from Triple-A Iowa in early August, but the former first-round draft pick fizzled in...
The Cubs couldn’t find a way to replace Aramis Ramirez at third base this year, and have to go back to the drawing board in 2013. They tried Ian Stewart, Luis Valbuena and Josh Vitters for the most part, with Joe Mather filling in occasionally, and...
I understand that the Cubs want to build the team the "right way" by building the farm system. What I do not understand is why they can't both build the farm system and try to build a winner right now. I think it is wrong to ask the fans who have waited...
The Cubs were built to lose 100 games, so what was with the obsession to avoid it? The actual issue is losing 100 games and still not getting the top pick in the draft. So Cub. I can understand players not wanting to be a part of 100 losses. I...
DENVER — Baseball is a numbers game, and for the 2012 Cubs, the outrageous numbers just kept piling up after a 7-5 loss to the Rockies on Thursday at Coors Field. The woeful Rockies swept the Cubs, leaving them with 97 losses, their most since...
PITTSBURGH (AP) — One of the majors’ best stories only a month ago, the Pittsburgh Pirates are collapsing to the point they might not even be able to avoid shedding a dubious distinction they’ve carried for almost two decades. ...
The first winning season in franchise history didn't thrill Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson when he was reminded of it. "I guess," Johnson said and paused. "I wasn't real concerned about it." The Nationals, who moved to Washington for the...
WASHINGTON — Mechanical issues with their charter delayed the Cubs' flight to Washington by more than three hours Sunday night, a fitting way to kick off their 10-game road trip. After losing 2-1 to the Nationals on Monday afternoon at Nationals...
This is why the Cubs' hierarchy wants to get a good long look at Brett Jackson. When he came to bat in the eighth inning of Friday's game against the Rockies, he was hitting .158 and had struck out 30 times in 57 big league at-bats. But on the 58th,...

Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters were brought up from Triple-A Iowa on Aug. 5 so the Cubs could get a long look at the first-round draft picks. Both have struggled, but Vitters' inability to adjust to major league pitching has earned him a seat on the...

MILWAUKEE — While the Cubs are on pace to lose 100 games for only the third time in franchise history, manager Dale Sveum doesn't think it's affecting the players. "Everybody knows that the 100-loss thing is obviously a number," Sveum said. "You're...
Sorry, Cubs fans. My condolences. Your team is worse than I thought -- whoops, wait a minute, I think another Cub just struck out -- and so is your future. It’s not here yet and won’t be for a long time. Heck, it looks like it’ll be...
