Bernstein: Good Riddance To A Big, Stupid Baby

Go away, Carlos, and take the whole act with you. Pack up all your stomping, snorting, outsized machismo and sell it somewhere else.

Wisch: Count Out The Cubs, But ‘Q’ Up The Nicknames

In case you haven’t been paying much attention to the Cubs this season Quade has a curious way of calling almost every guy on his team by a name that they weren’t born with.

Wisch: What’s ‘Z’ Deal? Keeping Zambrano Makes More Sense

If the Cubs trade Zambrano and still have to pay the majority of his freight – as was rumored in the proposed deal with the Yankees – then how does that help the Cubs?

For both the Cubs’ Mike Quade and the White Sox’s Ozzie Guillen, I think their time in the Windy City is up.

Bernstein: If Cubs Hire Gillick, Everyone Else Must Go

It has to be over for the current regime. Not just double-checked, monitored and supervised, but over.

Harris: This Job Is Too Big For Quade

Mike Quade is a nice guy, a good talker, and is very personable. Frankly, I like him, but not as an MLB manager.

Wisch: What Exactly Is Wrong With Carlos Marmol?

A year ago, Carlos Marmol was virtually un-hittable. Now he’s Mel Rojas. And the mighty struggles of the Cubs’ once mighty closer seems to have everyone asking questions.

2011 MLB All-Star Game

Bernstein: The All-Star Game Nobody Wanted

By gametime, I won’t be surprised to see that Adam Dunn and Randy Wells have been added to the rosters. I was initially taken aback by Aramis Ramirez’s decision yesterday to turn down an All-Star invitation, but now I’m with him.

Schuster: Thank Heavens For The All Star Break

Admit it Chicago, you’ve probably never relished the All Star break as much as this year. Mind you, I said the break and not the All Star game itself. The game is a joke but that’s a story for another day. What I’m talking about is having a few days away from the terrible season we are witnessing on both sides of town.
