David Schuster

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.

Albert Pujols

Schuster: Don’t Believe Everything You Read

A report this morning out of the St. Louis Post Dispatch said that the Cubs have made a qualifying offer to Albert Pujols. The Cubs themselves had “no comment” on the report, but let’s look at this realistically.

Schuster: Cubs And Sox Are Quiet So Far

A lot of talk on day 1 at the Winter Meetings down here in Dallas but no action for either the Cubs or Sox….yet.

Schuster: Santo Gets In, Minoso Has To Wait

The city of Chicago dominated the opening of baseball’s winter meetings. The first thing on MLB’s agenda was the announcement of the Veteran’s Committee on who was going into the Hall of Fame. The announcement came early in the morning with former Cub Ron Santo getting in while former Sox player Minnie Minoso fell short.

Derrick Rose

Schuster: They’re back

To no ones surprise the first player to show up at the Bulls practice facility on Thursday was Derrick Rose. And to even less less surprise Rose said he’s ecstatic to be back and still blames himself for last season’s playoff loss to Miami.

Schuster: Idiotic Play Calling Contributes To Bears Loss

You hate to pin a loss on one play but it would be easy if you want as the Bears lost to the Raiders 25-20 out here in Oakland.

Chicago Cubs Introduce New Manager Dale Sveum

Schuster: Time Starts Now For Epstein And Co

Now, Epstein will work hard to get his new organization to the top of much more important categories. The Cubs President will now pretty much go underground as he tries to rebuild the franchise.

Schuster: Looks Like It’s Sveum

From all appearances it looks like Dale Sveum will be the new Cub’s Manager. All indications point to that following a series of events from Wednesday.

Schuster: A Lot Of News From GM Meetings

After sitting around the Phister Hotel up here in Milwaukee most of the day we finally got a chance to talk to the various General Managers. It actually was sort of funny because when they came into the ball room it was like feeding time at the zoo. We pounced on them and barely let them up for air.

David Stern

Schuster: Will The NBA Return Next Week Or Are We Being Teased Again?

If any of you have followed me on the station, or Facebook or Twitter you know that I am a die hard hoops junkie. All levels of the sport are cool but the ultimate for me is the NBA and I have been going crazy without it during this prolonged lockout.

Schuster: Cubs Should Hire Mike Maddux

Maddux came off incredibly impressive in his press conference with the media on Wednesday and I’m told he was just as impressive when interviewing with the Cubs’ brass.

Schuster: The Cubs Front Office Sure Looks And Sounds Impressive

One lesson my dad taught me at a young age was not to get over impressed by looks, but it’s hard not to be impressed by the Cubs new front office.

Schuster: Epstein Wins Press Conference

There’s no doubt that Theo Epstein gives the Cubs their best chance for winning in a long time…like say a century.

Schuster: Hull & Mikita In Bronze Forever

Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita met over 50 years ago and have remained close all these years. And with the unveiling of their statues Saturday night they will remain side by side for eternity…in bronze

Schuster: I Want (and Need) The NBA

For weeks I continued to say that the NBA would start on time. All my peers said I was crazy but I stuck to my guns thinking the two sides would work it out. Boy was I wrong.

Schuster: So Long Buehrle?

In a dismal filled baseball season for the White Sox, the ovation that Mark Buehrle received when he came off the field Tuesday night had to be the hi-lite.

Juan Pierre

Schuster: Juan Pierre Collects His 2,000th Hit

Juan Pierre reached a milestone of 2,000 hits Thursday night but also has been one of the more maligned players in Chicago history. Both Cub and Sox fans have taken turns ripping this guy since he has played on both sides of town

Schuster: Congratulations To Richard Dent

Richard Dent thanked just about everybody in North America when he finally got up and spoke to the gathered audience here at the Hall of Fame on Saturday. He was told in advance that his speech should go no longer than eight minutes.

Paul Konerko

Schuster: No Timetable For Konerko’s Return

Initially Konerko’s injury was diagnosed as a bruised calf but it has now been expanded to a deep bone bruise and it’s actually closer to the knee.

Schuster: Chances Of Additional Sox Trade ‘Slim’

Never say never, but it looks like White Sox General Manager, Kenny Williams is done dealing. Prior to Saturday’s game vs. Boston, Williams said the following, “I would say the chances of anything additional is very very slim.”
