Looked up the pbp - it was a catcher: Braeden Schlehuber.

Schlehuber even sounds like it should be a brand of some kind of extra viscous liquid.

Baez's RBI single, scoring Scczzrruurr: http://www.milb.com/multimedia/vpp.jsp?content_id=29466883&sid=milb I saw the little hitch at the top where the bat pointed back toward the pitcher and thought "too loopy"...and then there was a blur where I assume the bat was supposed to be and ...

For what it's worth - I'd be really surprised if it's 5 for 1:

Matt Garza to the Rangers is 99.9% done. Finishing medical records right now. Cubs get Olt, CJ Edwards, Neil Ramirez & 2 more.

But...I guess they're only 4.5 out. The more the merrier. If we wind up with Olt and throw in arms, I'll be a sad panda.

Re: Garza to Rangers close?

Also, people had legitimate reasons to really like Olt last year... b) His K% was the only serious red flag in his game, as he was able to hit for modest average, hit lots of homers, draw lots of walks, and play plus defense at a premium defensive position. Add in the fact that we now have Kris Bry...

Re: Garza to Rangers close?

Well, my guess is nothing goes down tonight or tomorrow, due to Selig not liking interruptions and all. I'll stick to my prediction that if its the Rangers, it'll be Olt, Luke Jackson, and Neil Ramirez. luke jackson PROS throws hard, strikes out lots of guys CONS walks lots of guys, suffers from ea...

Went and looked up the probable pitchers and Cubs have Berken, Volstat, and Wood. I think we'll be fine Our hitters also look like they've checked out, so you're prob...

Re: 2013 Draft Discussion

I'm resisting starting up one of my reverse pennant race threads because it jinxed us last time. We rocketed up the standings, much to my dismay.

We can do this. Screw Minny and Colorado - I want to set our sights on the Astros, even if they're hell-bent on having a negative payroll.

Re: The Catch-All Trade Deadline Thread...

If I'm the Red Sox, I'd let AGon go if I could get reasonable value. Reasonable would have a good bit of cushion.

I'd let Beckett go yesterday.

Re: Carlos Pena claimed on Waivers

I'd rather pay Zambrano full price to not be here than have to play Burnett. He's a clubhouse destruction set in his own right, and he's a sub-.500 pitcher in his 3 seasons on a team that was way above .500. Nobody's taking Zambrano at this point, anyway, but I'd give anyone Pena and Zambrano and pa...
