It was the Ozzie Guillen, Carlos Zambrano, and Mark Buehrle show before the Cubs/Marlins game tonight at Wrigley Field, and the sweaty-hot, filled to capacity Marlin dugout wasn’t my assignment.
As the White Sox were busy regaining first place in the AL Central, management was busy filling a hole at third base via trade. Former Red Sox, now White Sox, third baseman Kevin Youkilis was dealt during the eighth inning of the White Sox/Brewers pitchers’ duel.
The White Sox won 18 of 18 in May, but have only won one series in June. This back and forth leaves Jake Peavy searching for his team’s definition.
Both the Cubs and White Sox have nothing to do with each other, except for the six times they play a year.
Monday night was all about fun for the White Sox, as various players and coaches took to the hardwood, bowling for charity at the Third Annual Celebrity Bowling Classic. The “fun” however, carries over to the field and has been a main reason the Sox are in 1st place.
Chris Volstad continued his dissapointing season with the Cubs today. Cubs lose 5-1.
Tom Thibodeau has shown many great things in his short stint as a head coach, but his management of minutes in this shortened but more compact NBA season has not been good.
Joe Paterno’s drawn out funeral services this past week opened my eyes to the blind and ignorant support fans have for their college football programs across America.
There are many indications of change taking place at Wrigley Field that show Tom Ricketts’s dedication to winning.
Cubs President Theo Epstein and General Manager Jed Hoyer stood in the back of a cramped PNC Club at Wrigley Field Monday night as the Chicago media fired questions at current Milwaukee Brewers Hitting Coach Dale Sveum.
The Red Sox enjoyed two championships because of the hard work and insight of their General Manager Theo Epstein. Now the Cubs hope to experience the same fruits of labor, but it will take the right amount of time and the correct Theo Epstein.
Mike Quade is a nice guy, a good talker, and is very personable. Frankly, I like him, but not as an MLB manager.
Even after the day Derek Jeter he had on Saturday, getting his 3,000th hit via a home run and going 5 for 5 fans still find reasons to hate him.
I have written many blogs on this web site over the past year and a half praising and defending Lebron James’ greatness and talent, whether it be physical or mental. Today I cannot do that, as I am at a loss for words.
In the second inning of Saturday night’s game at Fenway park, Chicago Cubs outfielder Marlon Byrd was hit by a pitch under his left eye. It was a scary situation for Byrd and his teammates, but looking back on it, Byrd may actually be lucky.
Marlon Byrd is now on the 15 day DL after being hit in the face with a pitch in the second inning of Saturday’s Red Sox/Cubs game.
Not even a Cubs’ come from behind win late could take the team’s focus on the status of Marlon Byrd who was hit in the face with a pitch in the 2nd inning tonight in Boston.
Cubs starting pitcher Matt Garza has some elbow tightness and will not start in Sunday night’s series wrapup in Boston.
The atmosphere is electric here at Fenway Park, and that is no exaggeration.
The Red Sox piled on 19 hits and didn’t exactly welcome the Cubs back to Fenway Park tonight from a 93 year absence with open arms as they beat the North Siders 15-5.
