Cubs

Ernie Banks did it his way. That usually implies a bully with a big ego, a loner making enemies while getting ahead. But for Mr. Cub, this always meant killing them with kindness.
Times and locations have been announced for memorial services honoring Cubs legend Ernie Banks, who passed away on Friday at the age of 83.
The Cubs and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office began to unveil plans for an Ernie Banks tribute on Sunday. The city will celebrate Banks’ extraordinary life with a public memorial at Daley Plaza.

Team talk

  • 3y
    The timing was perfect for Dale Sveum, who will now try to direct to the Cubs to a World Series championship. Sveum was introduced at a Wrigley Field press conference earlier today.
  • 3y
    Now that the front office staff is in place and the Cubs have their new manager, when the heck will they start upgrading the roster in an attempt to turn the franchise around?
  • 3y
    Dale Sveum has had a front row seat to almost every game of Prince Fielder's career and has received a glowing recommendation from the slugger. But is that enough to lure the big man to Chicago?
  • 3y
    The Cubs announced Dale Sveum as the new manager Thursday afternoon. The introductory press conference will be tomorrow at 9 a.m. and will be streamed at CSNChicago.com.
  • 3y
    According to SI's Jon Heyman, the Cubs have offered their manager job to Dale Sveum, which comes on the heels of CSN's David Kaplan reporting Mike Maddux will likely not pursue the opening.
  • 3y
    CSNChicago's David Kaplan is reporting the Cubs will re-sign Kerry Wood, possibly to a two-year deal, barring an unforeseen development.
  • 3y
    Despite being interested, Mike Maddux does not appear willing to pursue the Cubs' managerial position, meaning the team's next manager very well could be Dale Sveum.
