Juwan Howard thinks Rose is MVP over LeBron

It seems Chicago roots have a stronger pull than NBA teammates. Juwan Howard plays for the Miami Heat, but his vote for the NBA's MVP is the Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose.

"Derrick Rose has done a phenomenal job this year for his team," Howard said. "Even though LeBron is my teammate ... honestly, I'll give it to (Rose). If he stays on this pace that he's on right now, he's got my vote." (Chicago Breaking Sports)

Sale and Morel make Baseball America prospect list

Two Chicago White Sox prospects have made Baseball America's Top 100 prospect list. Left-hander Chris Sale and third baseman Brent Morel were the only Sox players on the list.

Sale was listed as the 20th and Morel was ranked 85th top prospect by the publication.

Washington's Bryce Harper came in at the top of the list. (Chicago Breaking Sports)

Tommie Harris' time running out with the Bears?

According to Brad Biggs, the Bears appear to be at a crossroads with defensive tackle Tommie Harris. He's due a roster bonus in June of 2.5 milion and has a workout bonus of 500,000. With a base salary of 2,312,500 for 2011, it's unlikely he'll be around, especially for that price.

For the second straight year, Harris made a late-season push that drew praise from coaches and teammates. But the team isn't certain yet what will happen with offseason bonuses in the event of a lockout. (Chicago Breaking Sports)

Dusty Baker says "don't blame me"

After news broke that St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright suffered a possible season ending elbow injury, Reds manager Dusty Baker cleared the air. He has been accused of ruining pitchers' arms when he managed the Chicago Cubs.

"Who are they going to blame for that one?" Baker asked. (Dayton Daily News)

Duncan Keith isn't quitting his day job anytime soon, but maybe he can moonlight as a Russian singer.
