What is the Cubs rotation going to look like next year? Since Theo Epstein and his crew took over four years ago, the Cubs rotation has been a rotating door of players and next season might be the first year that players leave midseason.

The Cubs Top Fantasy Players in 2013

Unfortunately for Cubs faithful, 2013 doesn’t have the most promising of outlooks. As the rebuilding project continues, us Northsiders need distractions to make the 162-game season seem, well, not as soul-crushingly long. Is ‘soul-crushingly’ even a word? It is now.

Sox Stomp Tigers

In game 1 of the 4 game set and the first of today's day/night doubleheader, the Sox dropped the hammer on the rival Tigers.  A 12-2 score leaves the Tigers gasping for air as game 2 is on the horizon, as well as sinking very quickly in the division as they now stand 8 games out. The Sox have a great opportunity this week to make some headway not only on the Tigers, but also on the Twinks.  With the Twink l ...
