With rumors beginning to swirl, The Mully and Hanley Show spoke with MLB Network’s Peter Gammons to get the inside scoop.
With Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod in charge, the trio is working to build the Cubs into a contender through the draft and through player development.
It may be time for struggling White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy to toss in the towel for the season.
No person knows more people in baseball than Hall-of-Fame writer Peter Gammons. And that means its unlikely anyone has a better idea of who might be interested in the Cubs general manager job.
MLB Network’s Peter Gammons knows Pat Gillick well and believes the longtime baseball executive would have serious interest in joining the Cubs.
In his last 1.1 innings pitched, Carlos Marmol has given up three hits, five walks and seven earned runs on his way to blowing to saves. And as the trading deadline approaches, he recent struggles may not have much of an impact on his trade value.
At this point in the season, it’s pretty clear that the Chicago Cubs aren’t going to be competing the NL Central. But, in preparing to compete in the division over the next few season, the team needs to evaluate which players can be traded for prospects.
The end result of Thursday night’s Cubs win doesn’t come close to tell the story of the game. While the Cubs won 10-9, they were trailing in the fourth inning by a score of 8-0, and starting pitcher Matt Garza failed to get out of the third inning.
Despite playing better as of late, it’s unlikely that the Chicago Cubs will be able to compete for a playoff spot. As the team soon shifts its focus to improving for the future, Carlos Pena might hear his named mentioned in potential trades.
Although it hasn’t been as drastic of a turnaround as last season, the White Sox have stabilized their season after going 10-18 in April. And considering the struggles by some players, the White Sox should feel somewhat fortunate to be only 4.5 games back.
Last week, the MLB Network’s Peter Gammons described Wrigley Field as a dump and said that the Ricketts Family needed to model what the Boston Red Sox did to renovate Fenway Park.
The Chicago Cubs’ season is quickly starting to fall apart. And as it does, the likelihood that general manager Jim Hendry will be shown the door at the end of the season increases. But the problems with the team aren’t necessarily all his fault.
Due to the Chicago Cubs’ struggles on the field, coupled with falling attendance, the Ricketts family has almost no ‘honeymoon’ period to their ownership of the franchise. Two years in, it’s clear the organization needs a lot of improvement.
After sweeping the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago White Sox will return home with a 10-game homestand. They’re coming back to U.S. Cellular Field with a little more hope than they left with, and with a little less pressure on the players’ shoulders.
It’s a well known fact that the Chicago White Sox got off to an unexpectedly bad start to the season, but as a of late they seem to have found the right track. And the return of Jake Peavy may be happening at the perfect time for the streaking White Sox.
Baseball analyst Peter Gammons says he thinks the White Sox have reached a turning point, and should be given credit for their pitching.
It’s has been a tough season so far for the White Sox and their fans. Both thought the team would have a good chance to win the division and make a deep run into the playoffs, but through 32 games Chicago is stuck in last place.
Before last season’s trade deadline, the Chicago White Sox acquired Edwin Jackson from the Arizona Diamondbacks. At the time it was thought that the move was made in order to flip Jackson and get Adam Dunn.
The Chicago White Sox made some aggressive offseason moves to bring in slugger Adam Dunn and retain the services of Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski.
Opening day is several weeks away, as a result all 30 MLB teams are optimistic that they have the right mix of pitching, hitting and defense to clinch their respective division title.
