Mike Olt has a renewed belief and confidence with his vision problems behind him.
As the days get longer and spring evolves into summer, a shorter view of time is in the baseball mirror of Cub starter Jeff Samardzija.
Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer insists the team wants Samardzija if contract numbers work out.
It’s a big day for the Chicago Cubs, and as long as the rain holds off this afternoon, the weather won’t wash away fans’ excitement for the team’s home opener, and the start of a yearlong commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field.
Before the rainbow, there must be rain. And it’s raining right now on Chicago baseball.
Former Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly will work under Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer.
All we know is Rick Renteria is an optimist — which may be all the Cubs need.
After a disappointing 2013 season, 2014 looms large for Starlin Castro.
The young hitters give reason for hope, but quality young arms aren’t arriving anytime soon.
Ho, ho, ho! Baffoe Claus here. I’m way better than Ditka Claus because I don’t smell like cigars, I haven’t been compromised by endorsement commitments (yet), and children are genuinely happy when I show up to their homes bearing gifts (pizza is the greatest gift of all; wine for children, not so much).
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.

To his credit, Theo Epstein has never claimed to be the smartest guy in the room, let alone in baseball.
Former Indians manager Manny Acta reportedly interviewed for the Cubs managerial position Monday.
In order to last 29 years in the booth like Hawk has, you have to be doing something right.
Find the right guy, even if if he’s not the known guy.
When Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the Cubs’ baseball operations, one of their first moves was to dismiss then-manager Mike Quade.
Until a true winning mentality emerges in the front office at Clark & Addison, changing managers on the field doesn’t much matter.
It has been a pretty long-held notion that at a certain point in our lives we are beyond teaching.
