Ten Foot Mailbag: It’s About Time, Kerry

Kerry Wood is supposedly retiring. I’m not surprised at the decision, though I am at the timing. Sort of out of nowhere, even though anyone who has played tee-ball could see Wood just doesn’t belong in the game anymore.

Wisch: Trading Sean Marshall Was A Mistake

I’ve heard all the arguments for why the Cubs traded their best reliever, and none of them has been compelling enough for me to get on board.

Wood needs to be careful if he wants his post-career vision to be realized, and actual baseball is only a part of it.

Wisch: A Great Start, But Do Cubs Need Samardzija In The Pen?

On Sunday, the onetime wide receiver strung together a series of goose eggs on Easter to dazzle in his 2012 debut and make it appear as if that day has perhaps finally arrived.

Schuster: Same Old, Same Old For The Cubs

Well so far the new Cubs regime looks a lot like the old one. More losses, and ugly ones at that. Yes, it’s only two games into a long season but it’s awfully deflating when the two losses have come the way they have, so far.

Bullpen Blows Lead Again, Cubs Fall To Nats 7-4

Carlos Marmol insists it’s too soon for him to be frustrated. Cubs fans sure are, though. Adam LaRoche homered and matched a career-high with four hits, and the Washington Nationals again rallied late against Kerry Wood and Marmol, scoring five runs in the eighth to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 on Saturday.

Stop attending team fan conventions. They are the equivalent of a Justin Bieber concert, and you, convention-goer, are the screaming, crying, fainting tween girl.
