Will a little magic help the Chicago Cubs offense? And maybe Kyle Hendricks, too?

When your offense disappears, it's only logical that a magician might have some idea of how to go about finding it. Most of the talk surrounding the Chicago Cubs' 1-0 win over the New York Mets concerned the magician Joe Maddon brought in for a little pre-game entertainment.

Sox Split Series With Mets

Well isn't that the 2013 White Sox for you. They take a series in which on paper they should win easily and blow it on the field. Too bad.

Series Preview: White Sox @ Mets

This is the first time the White Sox ever play an interleague game in New York (credit: @SoxNerd).

Just because the Sox are only playing two games does not mean that they should take this series lightly.

Mets, Phillies Won’t Trade For Lilly

Go ahead and take two teams off the list of possible Ted Lilly destinations. With the Phillies about to trade for Roy Oswalt (pending his approval) they are off the board. Ted had them on his no-trade list anyway, so it would have been hard to get him there. The Mets were an ideal landing spot, but the New York Post says they won't be trading for Ted. Given the Mets free fall in the standings this week that ...
