After staring at a blank computer screen for quite some time trying to find the words to describe this season thus far, I realized that a blank piece of paper sums up the Chicago Cubs’ first 13 games better than anything else.
Seriously though, the team is bad. I have just one question. Did any of you think something else was going to happen? We all knew this team was the opposite...
I really don't know why this is news at this point, but Kerry Wood has returned to his home on the disabled list. Here's a news headline for you: Kerry Wood is healthy. Seriously, it's like his 97th time on the DL. Below is a pie chart showing the amount of time Wood has spent [...]

According to MLB.com, the Boston Red Sox have acquired Marlon Byrd and cash from the Chicago Cubs in a trade. The Cubs receive Michael Bowden and a player to be named later.
