Joe Maddon is at it again. With his pitching staff depleted following an epic five-game ALDS against the Nationals, the Cubs skipper has named infielder Javy Baez the NLCS Game 1 starting pitcher in Los Angeles Saturday night.
"Look, we'd love to start the series right away, we really would," said a champagne-soaked Joe Maddon, "but at this point we've got to get our guys fully rested if we want to compete with the Dodgers."
The Cubs' path to the NLCS just got a bit easier after Nationals' superstar, Bryce Harper, was scratched from the lineup for game 4 Tuesday after sustaining a shower-related injury in which he used shampoo that didn't contain conditioner.
The hoards of Bears fans eagerly awaiting the eventual debut of first-round draft pick Mitch Trubisky will be in for a huge disappointment. Reports from those close to the organization indicate the young QB is becoming "much, much worse at football" just by being in the presence of struggling starter Mike Glennon.
The Bulls today announced the hiring of Doug Collins as a senior advisor of basketball operations and -- perhaps more importantly -- as a backup shooting guard.
Interim Bears starting quarterback, Mike Glennon got in a heated argument this week with the owner of Chen's Chinese Restaurant in downtown Chicago. It had nothing to do with the Kung Pow Chicken or quality of service, but rather the zodiac paper place mats on the dining room tables.
