One first-round pick won’t be enough for the Chicago Blackhawks

This season has been anything but great for the Chicago Blackhawks. During an apparent rebuild and reconstruction of the team, one thing is for sure; one first-round draft pick will not be enough. The Blackhawks have one first-round draft pick as of now for the 2021 NHL draft. Hopefully, by the end of the season, […] One first-round pick won’t be enough for the Chicago Blackhawks - Blackhawk Up - Blackhawk Up - A Chicago Blackhawks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Jared Porter was a Cubs executive when he sent unsolicited lewd text messages to a reporter

Jared Porter was a Cubs executive when he sent unsolicited lewd text messages to a reporter

Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports What does that tell us about this team? Late last night as I was fuming about the Cubs‘ inability to sign Jon Lester to a one-year deal (something I’ll write about later this week) I started getting a steady stream of texts, DMs and messages about now former Mets General Manager Jared Porter. The irony of my texts filling up about a guy who, well, sent a bunch of unsolicited texts to a reporter was not lost on me, but what most people are reporting as a story about the Mets is really a story about the Cubs. And as uncomfortable as it...

the Bulls are streaking, are they actually somewhat decent?

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports coaching has made the difference The Bulls defeated pedestrian opponents in their last two games, a Mavericks team missing half its roster and an uninteresting Rockets team without James Harden. But that’s how a bad team becomes an average team: consistently beating the bad teams. While the Bulls 6-8 record won’t impress anyone, most fans would have been thrilled with 6-8 after seeing the opening schedule. It won’t count on the books, but the league’s last two minute report shows the Bulls were definitively robbed in two of...

Cubs Minors: Aramis Ademan facing ‘make or break’ year in 2021?

Rule of 3: Wrapping up a bizarre Chicago Bears season

Photo by Chris Graythen/ Robert, Dan, and Brandon get together to talk about the end of the Chicago Bears’ season — Saints game, post-season presser, and all. It’s another episode of the Rule of 3 Podcast, where Danny Meehan joins Brandon Robinson and myself to talk through the state of the Chicago Bears as they wrap up their season! As we all know, this Bears season has had its ups... but it’s also had its downs. The 5-1 start was awesome, but the six game losing skid that followed was not.

They’ll look to change that on Tuesday when they play the Panthers, the same team Chicago lost to on Sunday night. The first game saw two Blackhawks goals as Alex DeBrincat continued to score and so did the power play (which is now 3-for-10 on the season). Connor Murphy also got his...

Why haven’t the Cubs signed this guy yet, Part 6: Jeremy Jeffress

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ The righthander had a fine year for the Cubs in 2020. Jeremy Jeffress had a fine year for the Cubs in 2020, posting a 1.54 ERA and 0.943 WHIP in 22 appearances. He filled in capably while Craig Kimbrel wasn’t saving games; Jeffress posted eight saves in 10 chances, and allowed runs in only three of the 22 outings. He’s 33 and likely would not be expensive, and the Cubs are apparently talking with him about a return: Jeffress has posted a sub-2.00 ERA and sub-1.000 WHIP in two of the past three seasons (including 2020), ranking 5th among...
