I have been covering the local sports scene for the last 30 years and in that time have seen more games and events then anybody. I’ve been privileged to have covered 9 local championships (6 by the Bulls, and one each by the Bears, White Sox & Blackhawks). I have also covered 3 no hitters and one perfect game and had the honor of covering the best basketball player ever on a daily basis. Not only do I love reporting on sports but I equally enjoy participating (Basketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis…etc.) You name it and I love it. I’m a huge movie goer who also likes to travel and I own a piece of a local minor league baseball team as well as a piece of a local restaurant.
Tom Ricketts usually makes himself available to the media one time during Spring Training, and that one time was Friday.
It wasn’t exactly an interrogation, but reporters finally got a chance to speak with Starlin Castro Friday.
In order for the White Sox to make any noise this upcoming season they will have to get major contributions from their starting pitching staff.
One thing is for sure, it will be a lot quieter at White Sox camp this spring.
Though Reed is the youngest and least experienced of the three, he likely is the leader for the job going into Spring Training.
General manager Jed Hoyer was glad that this four-month story finally came to a conclusion.
Brett Jackson is the future for the Cubs. The question is, when is that future? Is it near or is it far?
Samardzija is coming off his best season as a professional notching eight wins in 2011 to go along with an era of 2.97.
Matt Garza opened up on a lot of subjects Sunday as pitchers and catchers went through their first workout at Cub’s camp.
Theo Epstein was almost giddy talking about the beginning of Spring Training. The Cubs President said this has been a long time coming.
Marlon Byrd filled up the reporter’s notebook on Saturday. The first thing you noticed seeing is that there is less of him…20 lbs to be exact.
Coach Tom Thibodeau has constantly stated that if a player says he can play he will. But there are times when a coach has to take control and say no.
The Bulls confirmed that Luol Deng did indeed suffer a torn ligament in his left wrist but Deng said he is opting not to have surgery.
What are the Bulls waiting for in signing Tom Thibodeau to a contract extension? Yes, he does have a year plus left on his current deal but if they don’t show him some love soon he could be gone at the end of that deal.
Jimmy Hayes and Andrew Shaw have received a lot of praise lately (and rightly so) but Jonathan Toews has been consistent all season long.
The Bulls tonight begin a crazy schedule that calls for them to play 3 straight nights and 7 games over the next 9 days. Crazy? You bet. But all the NBA teams are facing nutty schedules like this due to the shortened season.
If you hadn’t seen the Bulls over the last season plus and just watched them the first 3 quarters Tuesday night you would have thought this was the worst team in the NBA.
Daniel Carcillo was acquired by the Blackhawks for his grit and rugged play but he went way overboard Monday night and it cost his team a victory.
The scene in the locker room after the game here at Lambeau Field wasn’t nearly as bad as I feared. I anticipated a lot of long faces and angry scowls on the Bears player’s faces but instead was met with resignation.
It seems that the Bears and the Bulls have been trying to follow the same floor plan the last few years as far as building their teams.
