Tribune staff reporterThe boos finally rained down in the fourth inning after former Cub Benito Santiago lined a double to left field. The jeers were long overdue but not as overdue as some decent baseball from the home team. The Cubs fell to 2-7 at Wrigley Field Tuesday...

Tribune staff reporterCorey Patterson made a good point about being shifted to the leadoff spot. "There's really no big difference," he said. "You only bat leadoff once, really. And that's in the first inning." True, but if Patterson had been in his customary No. 2 spot,...
Tribune staff reporterJuan Cruz pitched so well and Jason Bere so poorly in Tuesday's doubleheader that Cubs manager Don Baylor is considering going back on his decision to send Cruz to the bullpen. Baylor had said Cruz would lose his spot in the rotation once Mark Prior...
Tribune baseball reporterIn one of the classiest mea culpas imaginable, Moises Alou fell on his bat after the Cubs went down again. He accepted responsibility in an almost noble way. "Everybody is trying to help me, and I appreciate that, but I have too much in my head," Alou...
Tribune staff reporterCubs manager Don Baylor summed it up very simply. "Pitching," he said of Kerry Wood, "was real easy for him today." Hitting wasn't much of a challenge for Wood, either. He singled twice in four at-bats to provide the frosting for the Cubs' 8-0 victory...

Tribune staff reporterEric Karros' return to Dodger Stadium on Friday night would have been big local news if the city wasn't so obsessed with the latest developments concerning Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kobe Bryant. Karros received a warm reception in his first game back...
Tribune staff reporterIt figured that Fred McGriff's milestone day would come in a loss. This Cubs team is so inept it could spoil a white Christmas. McGriff became the first player in baseball history to hit 30 homers in a season for five teams: Toronto, San Diego, Atlanta,...
Tribune staff reporterThe inning that wouldn't die started with Moises Alou's double and ended with a groundout by Fred McGriff. In between the Cubs benefited from two bloop hits, one Paul Konerko error, one Jose Valentin misplay and plenty of feistiness against three White...
Tribune staff reporterGrammatically or literally, it may not be possible for two guys to win the same game single-handedly. But that's the way tough-luck loser Matt Clement viewed the Cubs' 2-1 loss Saturday to the Colorado Rockies. "Basically we were beaten single-...
