David Schuster is an on-air reporter, update anchor and part-time host for 670 The Score.
He’s been covering the local sports scene for more than 30 years. He’s been privileged to have covered 10 local championships (six by the Bulls, two by the Blackhawks and one each by the White Sox and Bears). Schuster’s also covered three no-hitters and one perfect game and had the honor of covering the best basketball player ever on a daily basis.
Not only does Schuster love reporting on sports but he equally enjoys participating, be it basketball, baseball, golf or tennis. He’s a huge movie goer who also likes to travel, and he owns a piece of a local minor league baseball team as well as a piece of a local restaurant.
Following a near-perfect regular season and a first round playoff win over Minnesota, the Blackhawks for the first time are facing adversity.
If I had a nickel for every time we have asked Tom Thibodeau when Derrick Rose is coming back, I would have a whole lot of nickels (which still doesn’t amount to much).
A few days ago the veteran left-hander experienced a twinge of discomfort in his throwing elbow during a bullpen session and immediately was checked out by medical personnel.
As a free agent, Scott Hairston had options, but there was no question in his mind that he wanted to play for the Cubs.
Talk about a swing man on your pitching staff. That’s exactly the role that Hector Santiago will fill on this year’s White Sox team.
The Cubs left-fielder had medical reasons for turning down a trade to San Francisco last year.
ubs owner Tom Ricketts would make an excellent politician because he can talk a long time without saying much. That was the case Sunday when Ricketts met the media and pretty much brushed away all questions regarding a deal with both the city and the neighborhood involving Wrigley Field.
Paul Konerko is the last of the Mohicans, meaning he’s the final member of the 2005 World Series championship team that is still playing for the White Sox.
Brent Lillibridge only signed a minor league deal with the Cubs, but he has a very good chance of making the Major League roster.
The news that Robin Ventura had turned down a one-year contract extension really didn’t surprise insiders.
Say what you want about Tuesday’s story about Derrick Rose potentially not playing this season (and I don’t believe that for a moment) but the part that upset me is that Rose granted an interview to a reporter from the national media.
There’s an adage in baseball that you’re only as good as your bullpen. If that’s the case, then the White Sox have a chance to prove a lot of the so called experts wrong.
Since its inception, the publication Baseball Prospectus seems to pick the White Sox to finish at the bottom of the standings each season.
Carlos Marmol says he’s completely innocent of the accusations that have been levied against him.
There was an influx of both Chicago teams needing third basemen, and players available coming into Baseball’s Winter Meetings, and on Wednesday the logjam opened up.
“He got the bird but he also got me. It happens more often then you think”, said Sveum.
WSCR’s David Schuster checks in from the Winter Meetings.
If you didn’t know any better, you would have thought you were at Rudy Jaramillo’s press conference to announce a contract extension instead of his firing. The way Cubs president Theo Epstein was gushing about Jaramillo, you had to remind yourself what was really going on.
Just 24 hours after taking a 90 miles per hour pitch to the face, Paul Konerko talked about how he was doing, “I feel good but obviously I have a black eye and it’s really swollen, said the Sox 1st baseman. “It’s just a matter of getting the swelling down but fortunately there was no fractures or any other damage”.
As I sit here at the Bulls practice facility I can’t help but think back to the aftermath of yesterday’s playoff game vs. Philadelphia.
