  • Javier Baez made his moment memorable Aug 6, 2014 7:08 AM
    Javier Baez began his career with a strikeout and many more firsts were destined to follow. When a player is this hyped, everything he does is historic. This was Baez's moment, and he made it memorable, though it took nearly until midnight Chicago time.

  • Baez just the boost Chicago baseball needed Aug 5, 2014 6:42 AM
    Sports have become event-centric. Bucking the trend, Major League Baseball has become eventless, and Chicago baseball is even less than that this season. Well, starting Tuesday night that changes for the Cubs, though perhaps only temporarily: Fans will be able to watch on TV as super-hyped super prospect Javier Baez debuts at Denver and then in person Friday when he arrives in Wrigley Field to play Tampa Bay.

  • No way Bears avoid injury bug a second straight season Jul 24, 2014 5:30 AM
    Can the Bears' offense stay remarkably healthy and remarkably effective for a second straight season? History advises to believe it only when you see it.

  • Who knew Maddux would be such a freak? Jul 22, 2014 8:30 PM
    Sunday encapsulates the Cubs' 106 years of futility when Greg Maddux joins Lou Brock in baseball's Hall of Fame. Maddux is a physical freak and this franchise always bets on the wrong freak.

  • Enough already with cuddly Bears mascot Jul 21, 2014 7:53 PM
    The Bears could learn something from the Cleveland Browns, of all people: Replace their cuddly bear of a mascot with a real bear that is menacing like real football players should be.

  • Golf’s next big thing might already be here Jul 20, 2014 8:19 PM
    Golf enthusiasts can quit worrying about the future of competitive golf. The next big thing will come along to replace Tiger Woods. Maybe he already has in Rory McIlroy.

  • Must be great to be young faces of the Blackhawks Jul 16, 2014 9:33 PM
    Judging by the Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane news conference, it's great to be young and a Blackhawk these days. They're healthy wealthy and should contend for Stanley Cups the next decade or so.

  • Yankees’ Jeter true star of stars Jul 15, 2014 10:00 PM
    Very few athletes have had the combination of attributes that it takes to earn the respect and reverence that Derek Jeter received in his final All-Star Game before he retires this fall.

  • The $1 million solution to All-Star Game woes Jul 15, 2014 5:28 AM
    Baseball is having a difficult time squeezing into the public consciousness these days. About all there is to say about baseball is that the All-Star Game – the latest edition scheduled for tonight in Minneapolis — is broken. The solution: Offer $1 million to the manager that manages to manage a victory.

  • Scout’s honor: The crystal ball’s always cloudy Jul 13, 2014 7:06 PM
    The Braves right fielder and a new book combined Sunday to indicate just how difficult it is to project the careers of baseball prospects. Cubs and White Sox fans should take note.

  • What’s up with Cleveland being so forgiving? Jul 12, 2014 11:59 PM
    If Michael Jordan abandoned the Bulls after a few years to play for another team, would fans here have welcomed him back like Cleveland welcomed LeBron James back? Hopefully not.

  • Disconnect between athletes, real world gets stronger Jul 9, 2014 9:53 AM
    Money! Money! Money! The pursuit of Carmelo Anthony makes it difficult to ignore how disconnected sports is from the real world. USA Today ran a story this week on the estimated annual cost of the American dream for a family of four. Categories were essential expenses, extras and taxes/savings: The total came to $130,357. Any prominent sports figure worth his weight in gold nuggets spends that amount of money on wine … weekly.

  • Who’s more valuable to Blackhawks? Toews or Kane? Jul 10, 2014 5:30 AM
    The question could be asked for decades: Who was more valuable, Stan Mikita or Bobby Hull. Now it can be asked of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane after they signed equal contracts.

  • White Sox’ Abreu one very special free-agent signing Jul 7, 2014 11:30 PM
    Jose Abreu has the potential to supplant Marian Hossa as the best free-agent signing ever by a Chicago sports team, or at least the best in the past quarter-century.

  • Did Cubs’ Epstein get taken for a ride? Jul 6, 2014 5:49 PM
    Not everyone believes the Cubs made a great trade while sending Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland. Some insist the exchange rate would have been higher by trading the two pitchers separately.

  • Rose the reluctant recruiter Jul 2, 2014 6:40 PM
    All sorts of questions are swirling around Derrick Rose's participation in the Bulls' pitch to Carmelo Anthony. Did he do this or did he do that? The answer is he should have done everything possible.

  • U.S. soccer loss or not, things are different now Jul 2, 2014 6:08 AM
    Belgium eliminated the United States from the World Cup. Soccer, however, gained so much momentum the past couple weeks that indications are that it isn't about to retreat into oblivion again. This isn't a time even as recent as 2002 when soccer essentially went away again after the U.S. lost in the quarterfinals.

  • Bulls need a splash, and Anthony is just that Jul 1, 2014 7:37 AM
    No excuses this time. The Bulls need to make a splash. Management has identified Carmelo Anthony as that guy and has to figure out a way to close the deal to get him. Something has to happen that identifies Chicago as a destination again for premier NBA players, yet we’re already being told that nothing can be done if a player wants to stay where he is or wants to go someplace other than Chicago.

  • This pendulum has swung Rizzo’s way Jun 29, 2014 8:45 PM
    In the latest update on the Anthony Rizzo-Andrew Cashner trade, the pendulum has swung in favor of Rizzo, the Cubs and Theo Epstein. Stay tuned for futher developments.

  • Americans as underdogs a different dynamic Jun 25, 2014 6:17 PM
    The United States normally is under immense pressure to be the best at everything and cure all the world's problems. In that context, it's kind of refreshing for the U.S. soccer team to be underdogs in the World Cup.
