Manny Ramirez has worked wonders with the young Cubs hitters at Triple-A Iowa.
The Tigers responded with a big move after the A’s made their own big play earlier.
The White Sox have reportedly added some bullpen help.
The six-year deal is worth $68 million – the largest first-time contract for an international player – MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal of FOX News Tweeted Thursday evening.
When Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the Cubs’ baseball operations, one of their first moves was to dismiss then-manager Mike Quade.
The Cubs have turned their attention to another big piece they would like to flip for prospects.
Free agent pitcher Mark Buehrle will meet with the Florida Marlins in South Florida, according to a report.
When the Cubs dismissed manager Mike Quade in an official release, the team included one other key piece of information.
With the Cardinals taking home the World Series, effectively ending the 2011 baseball season, it is now time for teams to beginning signing their free agents and making plans for 2012.
With the buzz around Chicago all about Theo Epstein, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports joined The Mully and Hanley Show to discuss the Cubs’ acquisition.
As the player’s union challenges the Cubs’ placement of Carlos Zambrano on the disqualified list, fans are wondering whether or not the team’s winningest pitcher over the last 10 years will ever pitch again for the Cubs.
Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says the White Sox still have a chance to win the AL Central Division if their two top hitters improve, but it’s time for the Cubs to look forward to future seasons.
Throughout the season, the White Sox have been plagued with an inconsistent offense and, at times, a shaky bullpen. It’s their starting pitching that’s kept them afloat, and can keep the season alive.
Carlos Zambrano has been the center of several Cubs storylines this season, unfortunately they haven’t been because of stellar pitching performacnes.
Already on the hot seat before the season started, the horrid season for the Chicago Cubs thus far has only increased the scrutiny of the team general manager Jim Hendry put together.
As good as Carlos Zambrano has been for the Chicago Cubs over his 10-year career (3.52 ERA, 121-76 record and 1,497 strikeouts), his frequent outbursts may be pushing the Cubs to try and trade the big right-hander.
After a rough start, the Chicago White Sox have started to turn their season around, and only time will tell if they can climb up the standings and compete for the AL Central title. If John Danks can turn his season around, that climb will be a lot easier.
Through his first 10 starts of the 2011 season, Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks has seven decisions, and they’re all losses. But his 0-7 record is nowhere near indicative of the season that he’s having so far.
As the Chicago White Sox look dig themselves out of a whole and get back in the race for the AL Central title, the team needs to evaluate what players aren’t contributing the way the teams needs.
A columnist warns that firing Cubs general manager Jim Hendry would be a bad move, no matter how the team comes out at the end of the season.
