The easiest thing for the Cubs to do would have been to let the Astros make their pick for them. But it's a disappointing night at the theater when easy stands in for best, and President Theo Epstein's stable of scouts doesn't work 20-hour days to go...
There is one benefit to losing 100-plus games. The Cubs will experience it Thursday night, and hopefully for a decade or more. They need to be like the Tigers, Rays and Nationals, who built perennial contenders on the backs of franchise players they...
Talking baseball while hoping the Bulls can avoid leaking talent in the off-season. The White Sox have a new rallying cry, and it’s silly. Hey, we’re 17-21, look at us now! That was the talk coming out of the clubhouse and the broadcast...
