This is the hardest series preview I’ve ever had to write.
It’s also the third series preview I’ve ever had to write, but even if it were the 287th, I’m pretty ...
Cubs Legend Todd Hollandsworth shot his mouth off on the radio today (recap at HBT).
Then you bring into question effort and that’s one thing in the game of baseball that really ...

I’m surprised to see the White Sox with a near-.500 record. Last I remember seeing any news of them, they were mired in a crappy start to the season, and new acquisition Adam ...
