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.

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.

Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita

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.

Kenny Williams

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.”

Schuster: Thoughts On The Trade

Wednesday’s trade sending Edwin Jackson and Mark Teahen to Toronto for right handed pitchers Jason Frasor and Zach Stewart serves two purposes.

Schuster: Pat Gillick To The Cubs?

Major league sources have told me that Cubs owner Tom Ricketts has spoken to Pat Gillick as recently as last week.

Mike Quade

Schuster: Quade Detained And Searched At Airport

What do Mike Quade and Donald Rumsfeld have in common? Both were detained and patted down by TSA officials at airports on Wednesday.

Schuster: Thank Heavens For The All Star Break

Admit it Chicago, you’ve probably never relished the All Star break as much as this year. Mind you, I said the break and not the All Star game itself. The game is a joke but that’s a story for another day. What I’m talking about is having a few days away from the terrible season we are witnessing on both sides of town.

Schuster: White Sox Finally Beat The Twins

For the first time since last August the White Sox finally beat the Twins. Their 4-3 come from behind victory snapped a 9 game skid to Minnesota and they did it with 2 out hits.

CBS Chicago–07/09/2011

Paul Konerko

Schuster: Justice Is Served, Konerko Going To All-Star game

It never should have come to an extra fan vote but Paul Konerko is going to the All Star game anyway. Konerko held off Detroit’s Victor Martinez to win the vote.

CBS Chicago–07/07/2011

Carlos Quentin

Schuster: Quentin Is An All Star And Maybe Konerko Too

Just about everything concerning the Major League All Star game is goofy and if you’re a White Sox fan you can now add to the fact that Paul Konerko was not named (yet) to the team while Carlos Quentin was.

John Danks

Schuster: Danks Goes On D.L.

Opting better to be safe then sorry the White Sox placed pitcher John Danks on the 15 day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Schuster: Danks Injured

The last thing the White Sox could afford on Saturday was a short appearance from their starter but that’s exactly what happened as John Danks left early with an injury.

Gar Forman

Schuster: Confusing Draft Night For Bulls

It was far from sexy but the Bulls came away satisfied with their draft as they landed Nikola Mirotic and Jimmy Butler.

Schuster: Bulls Likely To Use 2 First Round Picks

Try as they might to make a trade, the Bulls will likely end up using both their first round picks. Currently the Bulls have picks 28 and 30 in the opening round, and it’s beyond rare to get an impact player that far down.
