Cubs Season Preview: Third Basemen

The biggest position battle taking place this Spring comes at the hot corner. Ian Stewart and Luis Valbuena, the two candidates for the job, are both short term options, with the Cubs looking at Junior Lake or Javier Baez as the long term third baseman.

Cubs Season Preview: Shortstops

  Entering the 2013 season, the face of the Cubs franchise is Starlin Castro.

Just Don’t Get Swept

Game 1, not so good for the White Sox.  But games 2 and 3 can go a long way to erase the debacle of tonight. But in order for the Sox to turn this series around, someone is going to have to step up.  Coming off the atrocious showing in Baltimore in which the South Siders dropped 3 games out of 4 to the worst team in baseball, game 1 of 3 in Minnesota is not what the Sox were hoping for.  However, the pitchi ...
