Tribune staff reporterNomar Garciaparra was all smiles before Wednesday night's game in Busch Stadium, seemingly relaxed and happy in spite of a rough start to his 2005 season. But Garciaparra's season hit a low point in the Cubs' 3-1 victory over St. Louis when he...
Special to the TribuneAnother day, another Cubs crisis. Or maybe this one should be labeled a mini-crisis. We'll know for sure in another six days if Kerry Wood can't make his next scheduled start Saturday in Houston. Right now, plans are for him to start. But Wood is back...
The 2003 salaries for the 827 major league baseball players on opening day rosters and disabled lists. Figures were obtained by The Associated Press from management and player sources and include salaries and pro-rated shares of signing bonuses and...
Special to The TribuneNeifi Perez doesn't hit home runs very often, so Dusty Baker must really feel picked on. "Nothing personal, I hope, but he hurt us in Colorado a few times like that in the clutch," Baker said. In 1998 Perez hit a walk-off home run for the Rockies that...
Tribune staff reporterAfter LaTroy Hawkins' latest implosion, the Cubs planned on going with a modified version of a closer-by-committee with Chad Fox as their primary go-to guy. But manager Dusty Baker's best-laid plans fell apart in the ninth inning of Monday's 10-6 victory...

Special to the TribuneSometimes you win, and sometimes you lose. Friday, the Cubs did both. They beat Colorado 10-3 with a rare offensive explosion, but they may have lost pitcher Mark Prior for at least two months after a Brad Hawpe line drive smacked him on his right...
Tribune staff reporterIf the Cubs lose a chance to go to the postseason, they will spend a long winter thinking about all the squandered opportunities and all the runners thrown out on the bases. They blew a chance to overtake San Francisco in the wild-card chase Saturday...

Tribune staff reporterWith a sellout crowd of 39,078 on its feet and screaming, Derrek Lee came up with the biggest clutch hit of the season Saturday, capping a perfect afternoon at Wrigley Field. Lee's three-run, eighth-inning double off Florida reliever Rudy Seanez gave the...
Special to the TribuneIs this the start of something big, or is it just another false start? The Cubs keep talking about stringing together a stretch of winning games, but lately they keep throwing in clunkers. Well, now they have a chance again, following Monday's 7-2...
