"The chief executive officer of Tribune Company says he won't hesitate to sell the naming rights to Wrigley Field

The Cubs have not won a World Series since they have moved into Wrigley Field - I would think Cub fans would do anything to see a World Series winner. But no, they would rather die than give up the name of the owner that provided them with nothing but a sunburn!

Pedro Martinez, Juan Marichal filmed at cock fight

I think its great that Pedro has taken up a new recreation! Maybe this will relieve the urge that he has to beat up senior citizens.

Leitch: Why Mark Cuban Won't Get the Cubs

Good point whodat! Let Cuban buy the Cubs. First thing he can do is trade for Alex Rodriguez and assure the Cubs of never getting into another World Series.

Baseball GMs Vote in Favor of Instant Replay.

Since only the American League has the designated hitter rule, lets give instant replay only to the National League. In the World Series we can only use it in the National League park.

A-Rod a Mud Hen?

I remember, the A-Rod express is just like the song, "we're on the road to no where".

A-Rod a Mud Hen?

I hope the Mud Hens were aware of A-Rods performance in playoff games! I hate to see anyone not get what they pay for.

A-Rod would be a perfect fit for the Cubs, their used to losing in the playoffs!

Manny Ramirez, as Himself

Interesting article, its reference to "they probably should know better than to worship the forms of the game, instead of its soul". Is that a reference to the Colorado Rockies and their quest to bring religion into the game?

Rockies Place Their Faith in God, and One Another.

Religion doesn't help you hit a 98 mph fastball! Excuse the expression, My God, they play on a field named after a can of beer. Let's play some baseball!

A-Rod caps off winning rally

I think he might hit 70 + home runs. Of course that wouldn't include any home runs he might hit in the playoffs/world series. But then again how many could he have batting his usual .150 when it really counts!

Referee Suspended Indefinitely

Can any one tell me where I can get a pair of those groves ucla was talking about earlier? They sound like they might come in handy.

Veterans Committee picks no one for Hall

I think the Hall of Fame gets it pretty much right. It is an exclusive club and should remain so. They shouldn't have to vote anyone in that doesn't meet a high standard! Even though it seems to work, I don't even agree with the Veterans Committee being necessary - if your eligibility is up, that should be it.

New "toy" to play with at Baseball-Reference.com

Just think of the possibilities, in 1968 Pedro could go out and pick a fight with a much younger Don Zimmer!
