  • Josh McCown was signed by Tampa Bay on Wednesday to a two-year, $10 million contract.

    McCown gets well-deserved paydayMar 13, 2014 12:00 AM
    It's a shame the Bears had to lose QB Josh McCown, but you have to be happy for a good man who's cashed in big in Tampa. Having been picked up off a high-school football field where he was coaching kids, McCown is now a very wealthy man after Tampa Bay signed him Wednesday to a two-year, $10 million contract.

  • With coach Marc Trestman, left, and his high-powered offense in place, it’s refreshing that general manager Phil Emery is able to finally concentrate on improving a Bears defense that was historically bad last season.

    Bears focus on D-line a nice changeMar 11, 2014 12:00 AM
    When the Bears eschewed defense last spring in favor of building an offense, they had to figure it would take years, not days, to put in place a group of players they could rely on to function in a 21st century offense. The fact that it happened so quickly only means that they can now get started on rebuilding the defense.

  • The Bulls’ Joakim Noah has gone from a good NBA center to one of the best players in the game since the trade of Luol Deng to Cleveland.

    Noah’s rise gives Bulls much to considerMar 10, 2014 12:00 AM
    Has Joakim Noah’s recent play convinced Bulls management that Carmelo Anthony is worth sacrificing players the Bulls would have never previously considered dumping in order to put Anthony, Noah and Derrick Rose together?

  • The Knicks' Carmelo Anthony reacts after scoring during the first half against the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

    Can Bulls really recruit Carmelo?Mar 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    While highly entertaining, the Carmelo Anthony conversation is at best a reach unless Bulls management is willing to move some players it considers part of the core. Bulls execs don't tend to move their guys under far less crucial circumstances than these, so unless there's a change in philosophy, it seems unlikely the Bulls would be able to create space for a $20 million salary.

  • Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman is happy with his roster as it gets ready to defend its Stanley Cup victory.

    Post-deadline, Blackhawks’ Bowman likes his teamMar 5, 2014 12:00 AM
    Being up against the cap meant little chance of the Blackhawks making a huge move Wednesday unless a major player was dealt off the roster, and there was no chance of that happening since the Hawks love their team as is.

  • Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is one of the team’s many big-time prospects at spring camp this year.

    Cubs must know which can’t-miss will missMar 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Cubs’ farm system is loaded, but the key is being able to scout your own players, evaluate honestly without falling in love, and then figuring out before anyone else does which ones will make it, and which ones won’t.

  • The Hawks continue to tinker with their second line, trying to maximize the scoring talents of linchpin Patrick Kane.

    Hawks’ No. 2 line work in progress againMar 2, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Blackhawks continue to search for a second line down the stretch, as Patrick Kane finds a way to make it work with whomever he draws.

  • Fireworks go off after the national anthem during the NHL Stadium Series between the Blackhawks and the Penguins Saturday at Soldier Field.

    Once again, Toews upstages CrosbyMar 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Winter it most certainly was. Classic it was not. Amid blizzard conditions, the NHL Stadium Series probably looked beautiful on TV Saturday night when the Blackhawks hosted the Penguins, but it was anything other than cute for the players trying to secure a pair of important points.

  • Michael Sam

    Why Michael Sam mattersFeb 27, 2014 12:00 AM
    There’s more than enough proof of contempt for anyone that is different, that bigotry is alive and well and festering in the homes of millions of Americans. That’s not going away any time soon -- and that is precisely why we are talking about Michael Sam and Jason Collins, just as we still talk about Jackie Robinson.

  • USA forward Patrick Kane reacts after missing a penalty shot against Finland during the Sochi Olympics bronze-medal game.

    Blackhawks begin sprint for Stanley CupFeb 27, 2014 12:00 AM
    Now begins the NHL Sprint Cup, a torturous 22 games in 45 days for the Blackhawks. Joel Quenneville is tasked with trying to keep the Hawks near the top of the Western Conference, but knowing he can’t burn out his players before the postseason, a concern much greater than their place in the standings.

  • The upcoming season is a pivotal one for Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, not only for him but for the entire organization.

    Big season crucial for Castro, CubsFeb 26, 2014 12:00 AM
    On Opening Day, Starlin Castro will be 24 years old. It's difficult to remember at times, since he's already played just shy of four full big-league seasons, and more than 600 games. But, yes, he's still a young player and learning the game at the major-league level, which is hardly the ideal location for an education.

  • White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko fields a ground ball during baseball spring training in Glendale, Ariz., Saturday.

    Long goodbye begins in earnest for KonerkoFeb 23, 2014 12:00 AM
    Paul Konerko wanted one more chance to see a few places and a few people he would not have had the chance to see again had he not signed on for one more season. The White Sox have given him that gift.

    Bears’ LB experiment worth a shotFeb 20, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Bears’ move of Shea McClellin to linebacker seems desperate or even goofy, until you listen to Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin. Then, suddenly, the Bears sound logical.

  • Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau knows exactly what he’s doing when he talks about his future with the team, and so do his bosses.

    Thibodeau continues to needle Bulls bossesFeb 18, 2014 12:00 AM
    John Paxson knows what Tom Thibodeau is doing. He’s poking and prodding Paxson at every turn, trying to force the Bulls to let him go, make them so miserable that they have to get him out of town.

  • Team USA forwards Patrick Kane, left, and Zach Parise team up on Slovenia’s Jan Urbas during Sunday’s 5-1 victory for the Americans to close their preliminary-round games. Team USA advances to the elimination round as the No. 2 seed behind Sweden.

    Will it be USA-Russia rematch for gold?Feb 16, 2014 12:00 AM
    As is always the case in a world tournament, the top prize is there for Canada in Olympic hockey. They always have the best team and they always have the best chance to win, but right now the Americans are playing much better, and the two seem headed for a semifinal showdown.

  • Even when it became clear that tackle Jonathan Martin couldn't or didn't know how to stand up for himself, nobody with the Miami Dolphins had the courage to step in.

    NFL must address this sad lack of leadership Feb 16, 2014 12:00 AM
    The report on Richie Incognito's abuse of Jonathan Martin reveals a failure of NFL leadership, a failure of friendship and a failure of men to act like men. It's despicable.

  • Michael Sam will have to find a team with a strong locker room filled with leaders and a coach willing to overcome whatever distraction might be caused by having the first openly gay NFL player on his roster.

    Football reality setting in for Michael SamFeb 11, 2014 12:00 AM
    Michael Sam will have to be on a team with a strong locker room, with leaders who can control a clubhouse, and with a head coach willing to overcome whatever distractions are caused by increased media presence. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick come to mind.

  • Missouri senior defensive lineman Michael Sam says he is gay, and he could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL.

    Michael Sam more than right man at right timeFeb 10, 2014 12:00 AM
    From the utter depths of despair, the mind-numbing pain of childhood heartbreak, this extraordinary man, Michael Sam, has arrived and thrived and presented himself to the world. This can't be an accident. This can't be coincidence. There is a reason it is him and it is now.

  • Patrick Sharp (10) and right winger Marian Hossa (81) celebrate a goal by center Jonathan Toews (19) against the Anaheim Ducks in the third period on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014. The Blackhawks have 84 points through 60 games, better than all defending champs to this point in the season since 2007 except the 2009 Red Wings.

    Blackhawks living up to post-Cup promise Feb 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    After winning it all last June, the Blackhawks promised each other that they would be ready to go when the season began. They didn't want a repeat of the miserable season that followed their first Stanley Cup win. And they have lived up to their promises. “We made a commitment,” said Patrick Sharp. “We knew it was a short summer and we knew with the Olympic break that there was going to be a lot of games coming at us fast.”

  •  Somebody with the Cubs passed out bad information concerning the teamís pursuit of pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, who ended up agreeing to terms with the New York Yankees.
