Okay, here's the bare bones:
Bears are 3 and 1. They looked terrible in Week 4 but not bad in weeks 1 through 3. Cutler got a concussion in their loss after being sacked an NFL record 9 times in one half.
Bulls opened their preseason, and Carlos Boozer, their big signing, is already out for 8 weeks with a broken hand. They did NOT make a trade for Carmelo Anthony, and they DID sign Joakim Noah to a 5 year, 60 million dollar contract extension. Derrick Rose will come up soon enough; he'll likely command a max deal.
Cubs won a lot more under Mike Quade than they did under Lou Piniella, but still were under .500 and have a lot of question marks to address in the offseason. More about that, hopefully, as the year goes on.
Sox couldn't make that final push to stay in front of the Twins, and fell off at the end of the year. Still, not a terrible season for them. They have a couple things to address in the offseason, but they should be strong next year.
Black Hawks have a very new look except for their stars, and have not looked bad in the preseason. But they haven't looked unbeatable or anything, either. Season starts tomorrow.
And that's a wrap for today!
