Why the Chicago White Sox should trade Jose Quintana

As long as the Chicago White Sox are under the control of Jerry Reinsdorf, I don't expect this team to really get any better than they are right now. With both the Sox and Bulls, it's apparent that Reinsdorf isn't at all interested in tearing the team down and rebuilding from the ground up, which is what you need to do in order to get out of sports hell known as mediocrity. Look at the Cubs now versus where ...

Jimmy Butler denies any part in former Bulls departing

The offseason rumors have not been kind recently to Jimmy Butler. Whispers have it that the man known as Jimmy G. Buckets was one of the primary reasons that both Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose did not return to the Chicago Bulls this offseason. Butler and Rose have had chemistry issues on the court and probably ones off the court. They played more of a "you get yours this possession, I'll get mine next posse ...

ESPN lists Kyle Schwarber, Jose Quintana untouchable

Ahead of baseball's annual trade deadline, ESPN senior writer David Schoenfield put together a list - because journalists love lists - of one player from each team that is deemed untouchable and not worth of being a part of any deadline deal from each team. He broke down the player and added why the team should trade him. There were some good ones on the list that made sense, but there were also some that m ...

Former Bears WR/Returner Devin Hester released by Atlanta

The Atlanta Falcons have released the greatest returner of all-time and former Chicago Bears star Devin Hester. The move was announced Monday morning as the team called it a "football related" move. Hester spent just two seasons with the Falcons after being released by the Bears following the 2013 NFL season. It comes just days before the Falcons open up training camp, leaving Hester searching for a team to ...

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffrey labeled as most overrated player on team

Every off-season, there comes a point where lists and rankings are made, because there's a period with no real football to talk about and we're all really hungry for some more. CBS Sports' Pete Prisco came out with his annual list of one player on each team that is "overrated, more name than game." This year, for the Chicago Bears, it's franchise tagged Alshon Jeffrey. Yikes. Prisco had this to say about th ...

Flashback Friday: Dennis Green’s rant about the Chicago Bears after improbable victory

First things first: condolences to the family of the late Dennis Green. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this challenging time and may he rest in peace. Green was the head coach for the Minnesota Vikings and the Arizona Cardinals. As head coach for the Vikings, he advocated for Randy Moss, who was falling during the 1998 NFL Draft. This was despite having one of the best wide receivers in the nation ...

Doug McDermott choses new number

Once Dwyane Wade became a member of the Chicago Bulls, Doug McDermott's days as #3 were numbered - pun intended. To McDermott's credit, he knew this and willingly gave up the number, as he said in this Instagram post. Well, McBuckets has a new number. This is coming while he and newest Bull, Denzel Valentine, are training with the United States Men's Basketball team as members of USA Basketball’s Select Tea ...

Kyle Hendricks quietly one of the best pitchers in baseball

When most people think about the Chicago Cubs, most think about the names: Kris Bryant, Jake Arrieta and Anthony Rizzo. Even the sidekicks or the role players are well known like Jon Lester, Addison Russell, Javier Baez and Dexter Fowler. The list goes on. Yet nobody really talks about Kyle Hendricks. Even I said earlier in the year that the Cubs should flip one of their young bats for an established starte ...

White Sox not looking to move Sale despite “kings ransom” offer

Let's face it. The Chicago White Sox are an average team looking to squeak into the playoffs or at least be above .500 so that Jerry Reinsdorf can write the season up as a win. So to a degree, it would make sense to call the season for what it is (pretty much lost), look at the mostly barren minor league farm system and then plan for the future accordingly, which might include trading guys like Todd Frazier ...

Charles Tillman to retire a Chicago Bear

Charles "Peanut" Tillman will live on forever as a member of the Chicago Bears as he signs a 1-day contract today, only to retire officially. Tillman spent 12 of his 13 years in the NFL as a member of the Monsters of the Midway with the only other year spent last season as a member of the Carolina Panthers. In 2003, the Bears drafted him in the second round out of Louisiana-Lafayaette. Tillman went on to be ...
