Like any 101-loss team, the Cubs have a few holes to fill. And after spending their first year tearing down the building, Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod head to the general managers meetings in Palm Springs, Calif., on Tuesday to lay the...
In a perfect world, Brett Jackson would be the Cubs’ starting center fielder for 2013 and years to come. That was certainly the idea when Jackson was brought up from Triple-A Iowa in early August, but the former first-round draft pick fizzled in...
The Cubs couldn’t find a way to replace Aramis Ramirez at third base this year, and have to go back to the drawing board in 2013. They tried Ian Stewart, Luis Valbuena and Josh Vitters for the most part, with Joe Mather filling in occasionally, and...

The Cubs celebrated the end of their season like a victory in a World Series game Wednesday, rushing out of the dugout to mob Bryan LaHair after his walk-off, RBI single in the ninth inning of a 5-4 victory over the Astros. It was just another bizarre...

The new Cubs regime has wiped the Jim Hendry era off the map over the last 10 months in one of the quickest and most telegraphed house cleanings in club history. Among the Hendry loyalists the Cubs waved goodbye to are Aramis Ramirez, Carlos Pena, Mike...
On June 14, Bryan LaHair was hitting .303 with 12 homers and 26 RBIs and was earning enough respect of peers to later be voted onto the All-Star team. In the six weeks since, LaHair has hit .202 with two home runs and five RBIs. His last homer was July...

Talking baseball while hoping the Bulls can find some instant offense in the draft: 1. The White Sox arrive in New York with the Yankees reeling from the kind of day every big league team dreads. They put CC Sabathia on the disabled list because of a...
Matt Garza did nothing to help his trade value in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Astros, but he didn't hurt it either with his fourth victory of the year, this one courtesy of Anthony Rizzo. With a month to go before the trade deadline, Garza (4-6)...

PITTSBURGH — With a 12-game losing streak on their resume, the Cubs return to Wrigley Field on Monday for a three-game series against the Padres before departing on a 10-game trip. Memorial Day is traditionally the start of the "tourist" season...
