Just like his large cadre of rookie pitchers, Robin Ventura experienced growth during 2012.
Turns out Andre Dawson wasn’t talking out of unlit regions.
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.
LOS ANGELES | Joe Mather was playing at Dodger Stadium for the first time in his career, and his timing couldn't have been worse — in more ways than one.
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.
ATLANTA | The Atlanta Braves are falling deeper behind NL East leader Washington, thanks in part to their difficulties against the Cubs, the last-place team in the NL Central.
ATLANTA | The Cubs hoped Chris Volstad would return from the minors a better pitcher, more mature and better equipped to avoid big innings.
