Tribune staff reporterFuture Hall of Famer Greg Maddux and rookie right-hander Carlos Marmol now have something in common. Both Cubs pitchers won their major-league starting debuts in Cincinnati against the Reds. "I remember mine. It was here in Cincinnati," said the 40-...
Tribune staff reporterInstead of breaking in his new glove by soaking it in linseed oil or shaving cream, or by placing it under the front tire of his car and running over it a few times, Ronny Cedeno stuck his glove in a microwave oven before moving to his new position....
Tribune staff reporterGreg Maddux closed a chapter in a long and storied rivalry Wednesday night and earned the right to return for his 20th season in the major leagues. Maddux led the Cubs to a 2-1 victory over St. Louis in their final game in Busch Stadium, and surpassed...
