    CHICAGO – We’re just nine days away from the start of the Cubs and White Sox season, and like usual, we’re previewing the American and National Leagues on Sports Feed. Unlike past years, however, we were a little tight on time thanks to show schedules. So instead of breaking it down over a couple of days, Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman did so in one.

  • Watching Cubs’ Kris Bryant try to dunk is giving us life

  • Robin Lopez’s strong play continues in the Bulls’ win over the Suns

    PHOENIX – About a month-and-a-half ago, many expected the center to be playing a role on a contending team. That’s because the Bulls were expected to either trade Robin Lopez or release him around mid-February’s trade deadline. Instead the veteran is in Chicago, and lately has been playing some of his best basketball since joining the team in 2016. Monday night was another one of those examples as the Bulls faced the short-handed Suns in Phoenix. That’s when Lopez hit […]

  • Consistent punter Pat O’Donnell gets a new contract from the Bears: Report

    LAKE FOREST – To say there has been a revolving door in a figurative “kicker” room at Halas Hall would be both correct and incorrect. Yes, since Robbie Gould was released before the 2016 season, there have a number of kickers who’ve cycled through to fill the role. From Connor Barth to Cody Parkey, the inconsistency has been a stain on Ryan Pace’s resume. But the other guy handling the kicks for the Bears has been rather consistent in the […]

    CHICAGO – He’s not been on the Blackhawks for a couple of months now, but that hasn’t erased a decade of memories he made with the team. A lot of that came flooding back this Sunday when Joel Quenneville gave his first interview since being fired by the Blackhawks in November. When asked about their former coach at morning skate on Monday, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane reflected fondly on “Coach Q.” That was one of the topics of discussion […]

  • White Sox name Carlos Rodon their 2019 opening day starter

    GLENDALE, Ariz. – Over the past half-decade, the White Sox franchise has been one in transition. From competing immediately to rebuilding, there has been plenty of change for the team, from philosophy to players. This has been reflected in their opening day starters, who’ve changed every season since 2015. That’s a trend that continued on Monday.

  • Even in different circumstances, the Kings blowout the Bulls again

    SACRAMENTO – The last time these two teams met, the Bulls appeared on the brink of a mutiny. That’s back on December 10th, not long after Jim Boylen took over the team from Fred Hoiberg. Following a franchise-worst 56 point loss, the new coach called practice after back-to-back games. So upset, some players threatened to boycott the workout until cooler heads prevailed. The Kings crushed the bumbling Bulls 108-89, which was apart of a rough transition for Boylen to the […]
