Talking baseball while praising Kirk Hinrich’s grit: 1. There are lots of good deals on Chicago condos. A forward-thinking baseball organization might buy, not merely rent hotel space, this summer. Scouts will be camping out on both sides of...
Me, I’d have traded Matt Garza after the first inning in Pittsburgh when he survived a one-out walk and got a magnificent catch from Julio Borbon. Or I might’ve cut the deal to send Garza to (your rotation here) after the second inning...
Some would say Scott Baker had a better 2012 than the Cubs. He didn’t make it on the field. Baker experienced elbow pain in spring training and underwent Tommy John surgery in April. Now he’s coming to Chicago to try to help the Cubs while...

Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood wants home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor to know there’s an inside corner. But the shoelaces were a strike? No matter. Showing great savvy in adjusting to Bucknor’s sometimes incomprehensible strike zone...

Late Wednesday night, someone named Tom Hamilton sent me this email with the subject line “And I am a Cubs fan’’: “I was all excited about our new YOUNG Management team, thinking they would make a difference. Interesting Fact...
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Chris Volstad's heart lies at the beach, not too far, in fact, from where Carlos Zambrano lays his head every night. On some level, he still would love to be with his hometown Marlins, getting ready to move into a the new...
No. 12 Reds: 19th in a series counting down to spring training. Next: Cardinals. Poor Zack Cozart. In the year of Barry Larkin, it falls to Cozart to do the near-impossible — replace him. Cozart, a broad-shoulder product from Ole Miss who has...
