According to Greek mythology, Achilles was an invincible warrior during the Trojan War.
MESA, Ariz. | Cubs manager Dale Sveum knows exactly what he'll say about last year's 101-loss season when he meets with his team for the first time this spring.
CHICAGO | Nothing wrong with the number 101, if the subject is Dalmations.
LOS ANGELES | Top draft picks Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters got a typical Cubs' welcome to the major leagues: Chicago blew three leads and lost 7-6 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
CHICAGO | Despite another huge game from Kevin Youkilis, the White Sox failed to pull this one out.
LOS ANGELES | Now that the non-waiver trading deadline has passed, one thing is certain for the Cubs: The final two months of the season are going to seem interminably long.
CHICAGO | All the Cubs could do was give credit to A.J. Burnett. Considering he nearly pitched a no-hitter against them, what choice was there?
CHICAGO | Anthony Rizzo checked off another milestone as he continues to live up to the hype.
CHICAGO | Reed Johnson saw only one pitch in the game, and that was all he needed to have a big impact with a little hit.
CHICAGO | Travis Wood was consistent.
ST. LOUIS | Matt Garza made such an early exit, there was speculation in the stands and on the Internet that he'd had been traded.
ST. LOUIS | The next time he starts, Ryan Dempster could be wearing a different uniform. Still, he joked that when the phone rings, he's not worried it's the Cubs telling him he's been traded.
CHICAGO | Travis Wood was sailing along. Then, in a flash, that changed.
CHICAGO | The starting rotation is on a roll and the question is whether the Cubs can keep it going.
CHICAGO | As Ryan Dempster keeps extending his shutout streak, the question remains: Will the streak continue with the Cubs?
CHICAGO | After four days off and then a nearly four-hour rain delay, Alfonso Soriano came out swinging.
NEW YORK | If he could take back a pitch or two, Jeff Samardzija might be headed into the All-Star break having won two straight starts.
NEW YORK | Carlos Marmol's high-wire act almost undid a game the Cubs ultimately won behind two young players full of promise.
CHICAGO | Joe Mather homered and Travis Wood outpitched Johan Santana, leading the Cubs to a 6-1 victory over the New York Mets on Monday night to snap a four-game skid.
Jeff Samardzija pitches tonight indoors away from the Phoenix heat, charged with dual mundane tasks: stopping another Cubs loss from mushrooming into 2012’s umpteenth mega-skid and getting his 5-5 record above .500.
