  • Big-name managers don’t always work out for Cubs Oct 31, 2014 5:18 AM

  • Spellman’s Scorecard: Maddon hiring will be a real treat Oct 30, 2014 9:28 PM

  • Indications point to Maddon, but Cubs mum Oct 30, 2014 5:44 AM
    Although a report surfaced Wednesday afternoon saying the Cubs had hired Joe Maddon as their new manager, the Cubs and other sources were busy saying no deal was done. The Cubs and other teams have serious interest in Maddon, the former skipper of the Tampa Bay Rays.

  • Rozner: Cubs’ pursuit of Maddon strictly business Oct 30, 2014 12:46 PM
    It was cruel for the Cubs to leave Ricky Renteria hanging while they waited to see whether Joe Maddon wanted to manage in 2015, but this is business and in business people sometimes get a fastball to the ear flap.

  • Cubs’ Renteria makes it clear he wants to stay Oct 27, 2014 7:33 PM
    All has been quiet in Cubs camp regarding the pursuit of big-name manager Joe Maddon. However, incumbent manager Rick Renteria issued a statement Monday expressing hope of staying on and pursuing a championship in Chicago.

  • Miles: To be fair, Cubs owe Renteria a quick answer Oct 25, 2014 8:06 PM
    While the Cubs presumably pursue Joe Maddon to be their manager, current field boss Rick Renteria has been left to twist in the wind. Daily Herald Cubs writer Bruce Miles says, for the sake of Renteria, the Cubs should reach a swift conclusion to their managerial situation.

  • Not much ‘zazz’ at Wrigley since McDonough left Oct 24, 2014 8:17 AM
    Doesn’t it seem like there’s been something missing around Wrigley Field for quite a while? And I’m not talking wins. Or even the bleachers.

  • Imrem: Sox, Cubs need Maddon if they want to win Oct 24, 2014 3:16 PM
    How hard the Cubs and White Sox pursue available manager Joe Maddon will indicate whether they are as committed to winning as they say they are.

  • Cubs should go after Maddon — and quickly Oct 24, 2014 3:15 PM
    With Joe Maddon having opted out of his final year as manager of the Tampa Bay Rays, speculation heated up immediately that Maddon could be headed to the Cubs. Daily Herald Cubs writer Bruce Miles said it makes all the sense in the world for the Cubs to look into that possibility.

  • Rozner: Like Cubs, Royals patiently built from bottom up Oct 19, 2014 7:30 AM
    It never happens as quickly as you hope, and there’s never a guarantee the plan will work, but the Royals -- as the Cubs are doing now -- built a winner from the bottom up.

  • Spellman: What a move to bring in Coach Q Oct 17, 2014 10:37 PM
    Joel Quenneville's accomplishments include being one of only three coaches to reach the 700-win plateu, or his 270-127-60 regular season record with the Hawks or his .606 postseason winning percentage since arriving in town. I guess what I’m trying to say is simple: the guy’s a treasure.

  • Mike North video: KC proves bullpen is the key Oct 16, 2014 11:03 AM
    The Kansas City Royals are going to the World Series, in large part due to a great bullpen. Mike North thinks the Chicago Cubs and White Sox should concentrate on that part of the game a little more.
