Sun reporterOn a perfect summer evening for baseball, in the sport's most venerable cathedral, with nearly 50 of its all-time greats looking on, the 79th All-Star Game simply didn't want the good times to end. The longest midsummer classic, time-wise, in history...
Here's my problem with Konerko -- he doesn't try anything different. Same stance, same swing, same result. His bat looks a lot slower. Yet his stance still has the bat angled at 2 o'clock. Why not start with the bat at 12 o'clock to see if that speeds...

Tribune staff reporterDerrek Lee isn't thinking about it, and no one is saying he can keep it up the entire season. But after the first two months of 2005, Lee was the National League leader in batting average, home runs and RBIs, putting him on an early pace to become the...
Tribune staff reporterDusty Baker walked around Wrigley Field at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, taking small handfuls of a dirt-like substance from a bag and spreading it throughout the infield and outfield, sort of like Dusty Appleseed. Baker wouldn't reveal the bag's contents or...
Tribune staff reporterMany pitchers throw faster than Jon Lieber. But none throw as quickly. Cubs manager Don Baylor should know that by now. But after Lieber (6-4) breezed through the Cardinals' lineup Friday in a 2-1 victory that lasted just one hour 49 minutes, Baylor...
