On Saturday, he sent them another email stating that he would keep the Blackhawks from winning the Stanley Cup, police said.
While being interviewed by authorities, he claimed he also sent a message to Rocky Wirtz, the Blackhawks owner, which saying that if he ever saw Wirtz, he would beat him, according to the police report.

Gerardo Concepcion threw five innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts and two wild pitches, but the Giants rallied for three runs off two relievers and edged the Cubs 5-4 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action this morning at Indian School Park Field #1 in Scottsdale, AZ.
This was Concepcion’s third Extended Spring Training...
Big nights with the bat for Anthony Rizzo and Nate Samson, but not a win in the organization.
@Marlins 5 - Cubs 3; A few brights spots in the game; the bullpen threw 4.1 innings of scoreless ball and they drew 3 walks off Nolasco. But Barney's bases clearing defense-assisted triple was the only big hit of the game and Samardzija was the Samardzija we all know and love. The one...
Iowa It was a sloppy game for the Iowa Cubs as Vitters, Rizzo and Cardenas each committed an error. Brett Jackson went 1-5 with a triple and Nate Robertson continued his inspired campaign to be released within the first month. Smokies Rain Out Daytona There's just no way to sugarcoat it- Hayden Simpson was awful [...]
The Cubs fall to 3-8 and only Peoria manages a win in the organization.
@Marlins 5 - Cubs 2; It appears the Cubs have a script they can follow for the rest of the season, solid starting pitching effort, a pathetic offense, give up some outs on defense and the basepaths, and then watch the bullpen implode and lose the game. Dempster goes 6 innings with 8 K's against just 2 BB...
I've been keeping an eye on the Cubs' bleacher ticket prices for a little over a week now because I got curious about how their dynamic pricing model is actually working out for them. Previously, I had hypothesized that overall revenues would not be taking so much of a hit, because the Cubs would be [...]
After 10 games, the 2012 Cubs are what we thought they were, a poor offensive team with moments of intriguing starting pitching. Here are some rather meaningless numbers I stumbled across...
Cubs 2012 P/PA - 3.71 (Team Leader: I Stewart 4.19)
Cubs 2011 P/PA - 3.74 (C. Pena 4.13)
Cubs 2012 BB/PA - 0.79 (J. Baker 1.76)
Cubs 2011 BB/PA - 0.71 (C. Pena 1.67)
Cubs 2012 SB/CS - 8/11 for...
Iowa Brett Jackson got a double and a walk, Luis Valbuena hit a HR and Josh Vitters has started his annual slide into obscurity as the Iowa Cubs lost 4-6. Jay Jackson continued to be a fantastic 5th starter in AAA. Smokies Game 1 Dallas Beeler worked 5.2 IP and gave away 1 unearned run. [...]
Iowa Brett Jackson drew a pair of walks got a double and stole a base as he continues his impressive minor league career. Right now Jackson is sporting the kind of line that you would expect-mid range batting average, some power, some walks, lots of k's and some stolen bases. Despite all the experts saying [...]
In 2003, the Chicago Cubs drafted center fielder Ryan Harvey with the No. 6 pick in the MLB Draft. Like most Cubs first-round picks, he didn’t even come close to the show, topping off with two and a half years in Double-A before leaving organized baseball in 2010 and attempting to resurface as a pitcher.
And somehow he isn’t even the most disappointing Cub taken in the Top 10...
Dong-Yub Kim blasted a grand slam to cap at five-run 8th, as the Cubs outlasted the Angels 11-8 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action this morning at Fitch Park Field #3 in Mesa, AZ
DY Kim was one of a half-dozen players signed by the Cubs out of South Korea during the years 2006-10, receiving a $550K bonus as an 18-year old in February 2009.
Kim made his U. S. debut...
Is Alfonso Soriano on the verge of resurgence, or is the maligned outfielder's recent success an illusion?
The Cubs stumble into their next opponent having lost all three series so far this year. They'll face the Marlins and their hideous HR structure. Thank DeRosa that this series is being played in Miami and not Chicago – the media firestorm with Ozzie's return after suspension from his recent comments and the mere existence [...]
Garza goes tonight to try and stop the bleeding. And Tennessee plays a doubleheader in the minors.
How many combined caught stealing and...
Sorry, no time for a recap last night as I got caught up in that Cliff Lee vs. Matt Cain epic showdown. Anyway, Cubs lost in every way possible although they manage zero caught stealings or errors. Iowa lost 6-4, Valbeuna hit a home run and a double. Jackson and W. Castillo hit doubles as well. Jay Jackson gave up 5 in 5.2 IP. Tennessee split a doubleheader, each of the 7-inning...
