Harris: On The ‘Other Side’ Of Town

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.

Peavy Feels Fine, Ready For Start Against Twins

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.

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.

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.
