Abbatacola: 8-8 Is In Bears’ Future

Think about it this way: It took a historic performance by a backup QB in 2013 to get to .500.

Oh, poor Tom Ricketts. All he wants to do his fix his broken toy and the big bad politicians of Chicago won’t let him.

Abbatacola: Penn State, Do The Right Thing

Penn State officials have the opportunity to speak for the victims of the Jerry Sandusky child-sex scandal. PSU must make the changes.

Abbatacola: Walk Away, Cubs Fans

I am giving you permission to “take a break” from your team. How long? You should walk away for as long as you need.

Abbatacola: Aramis Ramirez Deserved Better From Fans

When Aramis Ramirez came back to Chicago for the first time since leaving for the Milwaukee Brewers and a 3-year, $36 million contract, I expected him to receive a warm welcome from Cubs fans.

Quade: ‘I’m Going To Be Back’

Mike Quade sat in the home dugout at Wrigley and met with the media for the last time in 2011 and maybe for the last time as the Cubs’ manager.

Abbatacola: Cubs Wasting Away In Wrigleyville

The Cubs have six home games remaining in the 2011 season. If you plan on coming out to a game, don’t expect to see anything different from their first 75 contests at Wrigley Field – bad baseball, cold beer, and an overly optimistic manager who is still trying to win something this year.

Abbatacola: Don’t Expect Much From September Call-Ups

Mike Quade has a tough road ahead in trying to find the proper balance of winning and developing unproven talent that may affect the organization’s future.

Abbatacola: Castro Gets A ‘Mental Day’ Off

Tom Ricketts

Abbatacola: Right Move, Wrong Time

Tom Ricketts confuses me. I want to believe that he is a smart business man and will grow into a great owner in baseball, but sometimes he makes decisions that raise more questions than provide answers.

Abbatacola: It’s All About The Pitching
