Levine: Cubs Offense A Real Issue

Cubs manager Rick Renteria knew run production would be an issue in 2014. Plenty of good starting pitching has been wasted in the team’s 4-10 start to the season.

Shepkowski: Samardzija Worth More To Someone Else

Many believe/hope the Cubs compete for a playoff spot in 2015. With that actually being pretty unrealistic it’s the wrong time not to shop a soon to be 29 year old starting pitcher.

Wisch: The Cubs’ Managerial Mess Is Their Own Creation

When Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the Cubs’ baseball operations, one of their first moves was to dismiss then-manager Mike Quade.
