Chicago Cubs agree to deal with free agent Ben Zobrist

Theo Epstein was asked about the lack of moves made this offseason by the Chicago Cubs last week. His response? "I think the winter meetings are going to be pretty wild," while talking to reporters. Wild is a pretty accurate way to describe what happened today. Long-time Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was traded to the Yankees, and without skipping a beat, Epstein and Jed Hoyer made a move that will ideally ...

The Price wasn’t right for Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs

Jordan Zimmermann is a member of the Detroit Tigers. David Price is a member of the Boston Red Sox. And the Chicago Cubs are still looking to bolster their rotation. Price, now one of the most handsomely compensated players in Major League Baseball, was at the top of the offseason wishlist for many Cubs fans.  Zimmermann was probably not too far from the top of many as well. Although these two excellent sta ...

Is Kyle Schwarber the future in left field for the Chicago Cubs?

Let me start by getting this point across: Kyle Schwarber will never be a Gold Glove caliber fielder, wherever the Chicago Cubs decide to stick him. He's going to make All-Star teams, and he very well might gather his fair share of MVP votes over the years, but it won't be because of his glove. Now I want to get another point across: Kyle Schwarber is a better left fielder than he displayed in the NLCS. In ...

A trip down misery memory lane for the Monsters of the Midway

The Chicago Bears are now 0-3 after an embarrassing 26-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Chicago was shut out for the first time since 2002. The Bears have now lost eight regular season games in a row, dating back to last season. It is safe to say the franchise has truly hit rock bottom. It’s times like this when I like to focus on milestones, milestones of misery that is. Here is my list of the mos ...

Patrick Kane puts Chicagoans in unfamiliar territory

Chicagoans are not used to this. This happens to other fan bases, not us. Whether it’s Kobe Bryant with the Lakers, Ben Roethlisberger with the Steelers, or Jameis Winston at Florida State, Chicagoans have always been the ones asking other fans, “how can you cheer for that guy?” We had Walter Payton, 'Sweetness' on and off the field. We had Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time who gamb ...
