The opening scene of the movie "Moneyball" is a grainy close-up of Johnny Damon batting for the Oakland Athletics. Damon becomes the movie's pivotal point, a primary example of a player paid more than stats say he is worth. That surprised Loyola...
The Cubs celebrated the end of their season like a victory in a World Series game Wednesday, rushing out of the dugout to mob Bryan LaHair after his walk-off, RBI single in the ninth inning of a 5-4 victory over the Astros. It was just another bizarre...

Sun Sentinel columnistThe Marlins weren’t the only team that considered giving Adam Greenberg an opportunity to complete his remarkable comeback. Matt Liston, the documentary filmmaker and organizer of the One At Bat campaign, told me after Tuesday’s unforgettable...
Kerry Wood got his day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, and he spent part of it lobbying for the Cubs to bring Sammy Sosa back to the organization as something. Wait, why do the Cubs need to bring back the worst teammate in the world? OK, Sosa wasn’t...

Welcome to the most important days of the Cubs’ season. Welcome to the most unsatisfying days of the Cubs’ season. So Cub. The amateur draft begins Monday and continues into Tuesday and Wednesday until, I believe, every graduating high...
