Cubs manager Dale Sveum and team president Theo Epstein believe the Cubs will take a big step forward this season, and I’m thinking, I guess losing only 90 games would be a big step. Another 100 losses, however, is easily attainable, don’t...
CINCINNATI — When Joey Votto comes to the plate at Great American Ball Park, the Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black'' plays over the ballpark's speakers. It's a tough song for a tough town, and the Reds' fans love it. Only one thing could make it...
A.J. Pierzynski had one of the great quotes of the season. "He had all seven of his pitches working,'' said Pierzynski, who jumped from the White Sox to the Rangers last winter. Pierzynski wasn't kidding. The catcher was giving an honest account of Yu...
Like his bosses, Mike Foltynewicz is a baseball optimist. He can see the Astros rising out of the ashes they find themselves in at the beginning of the Jim Crane era. "In three or four years, we're going to be a fun team,'' said Foltynewicz, a 21-year-...
