It's up to the Cubs players to control their fate before it’s out of their hands. → Read More

Column: Theo Epstein needs to make bold moves — such as trading Kyle Schwarber or Addison Russell — if the Cubs hope to make a playoff run

The Cubs aren’t going to win a World Series with their defense. Or their erratic baserunning. Or their inability to manufacture runs. Theo Epstein needs to act boldly. → Read More

Cubs employees with cerebral palsy are just part of the team at Wrigley Field: 'Almost every day I prove people wrong'
