  • 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.

     
  • Most powerful man in sports will stay in Miami Jun 24, 2014 9:25 PM
    LeBron James opted out of his contract with the Heat. Don't expect him to play for the Bulls next season, however. He'll say in Miami and be acknowledged as the most powerful man in sports.

     
  • Title over millions better choice for Anthony Jun 23, 2014 8:51 PM
    Carmelo Anthony's wealth manager should advise him that he'll be worth much more to himself and everyone else if he wins an NBA title with the Bulls instead of taking an extra $40 million in pocket change from the Knicks.

     
  • At least World Cup worth a watch Jun 11, 2014 8:41 PM
    The World Cup is about to begin again. Even if the United States’ bracket is being called the “Group of Death” because it includes Portugal, Germany and Ghana, the pageantry, the rituals, the fans’ costumes, the quality of play and the high stakes might make up for it.

     
  • Third option might be best one for Cubs Jun 10, 2014 9:03 PM
    The debate is whether the Cubs will re-sign Jeff Samardzija or trade him. Maybe the appropriate option is behind Door No. 3.

     
  • White Sox still seeking their identity Jun 10, 2014 12:44 PM
    While trying to figure out what this week's four-game series with the Tigers means in the wider scope of the season, the White Sox won the opener to pull within 3.5 games of first place.

     
  • Ill-timed comments tarnish Chrome’s run at history Jun 8, 2014 11:37 PM
    Horse racing is capable of turning horse radish into horse manure. That appears to be what happened over the weekend when California Chrome's co-owner went on nationally televised rants.

     
  • Short trip up the dial for Cubs fans Jun 4, 2014 9:55 PM
    Cubs' fans should be smart enough to find games on the radio next season despite the move from WGN to WBBM ... plus some additional random thoughts on other local baseball developments.

     
  • Not exactly a hairy situation for White Sox Jun 3, 2014 11:03 PM
    Throwbacks are all the rage in professional sports. That's the only possible explanation for why the White Sox asked Chris Sale to trim his beard, as if this were the 1950s all over again.

     
  • A lot of pride and a little spare change Jun 2, 2014 8:36 PM
    Just this side of the glamorous, prosperous world of sports sits a proud man in a wheelchair asking for spare change or perhaps even a spare dollar bill. Outside the United Center recently his name was Willie.

     
  • No real good reason to be hard on Hawks Jun 1, 2014 11:59 PM
    A question has been lingering ever since the Blackhawks fell behind early in the Western Conference finals. What should the response be if the Kings eliminate the Hawks from the Stanley Cup playoffs? Well, there's no reason to be hard on a team that ran into another champion at the wrong time.

     
  • There almost had to be a Game 7 May 31, 2014 12:01 AM
    If you think the Blackhawks-Kings series has been entertaining through six games, it might be that you haven't seen anything yet. There's nothing in sports like a decisive Game 7.
