Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Don't know if this was posted anywhere.... Eddie Butler was a bust in Colorado. The once highly-regarded righty went 6-16 with a 6.50 ERA in parts of three tumultuous seasons. He wasn’t much better during his stints in the high minors, putting up subpar numbers in both 2015 and 2016. Skeptical that ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-23-17

Hudson is left-handed Chris Volstad, right? Huge dude that looks like he should bring it but throws with less than impressive velo? Unless he shows he's moving towards Hendricks level command/control he's a nothing to me.

With Votto not holding Heyward I was pretty surprised he wasn't stealing 2B

Re: 4/22 World Champion Cubs (Arrieta) @ Reds (Reed) 12:10 ABC 7

I suppose he did trade LeMahieu for Stewart, which didn't work out. I said it somewhere in the offseason, but LeMahieu is basically Theriot with a little more BABIP and slightly more power both of which way may Coors Field aided, losing him is such a wet fart of a move that guys like Jesse Rogers l...

The only scenario I want him to opt out under is if it means we can get Harper.

Re: 4/22 World Champion Cubs (Arrieta) @ Reds (Reed) 12:10 ABC 7

RHB's against this Reed fellow, in his brief MLB career, are hitting .299/.381/.557 with 53 total hits, 11 HRs, 11 2Bs and 19 BB in only 43.2 innings. On top of allowing 4 or more runs in 7 of his 10 career starts and only going more than 5 innings 3 times. So yeah.... Good luck, guy.

A noon game on a Saturday seems weird for non-Wrigley field games. Usually these are always night games on the road.

Re: 4/21 World Champion Cubs (Lester) @ Reds (Adleman) 6:10 WGN

It looks like Dodger Stadium, maybe the Adrian Gonzalez play at the plate he still was bitching about like last week? that was my first thought, but wasn't it still kind of light out when that happened? Lester wasn't pitching in that game. I looked up the box score..... it was a challenge on Howie ...

Great win. Only a matter of time until Super Cubs return. For now we just have to put up with pretty good Cubs.

Only let Billy Hamilton get on base 2 times in 6 PAs tonight. That's maybe his worst game ever vs us

Wonder if Zobrist has a minor injury. Didn't play Wednesday and seemed like a better option for PH in multiple spots tonight

Why doesn't Hector go out of the wind up anymore with the hands over the head deal? He was doing it last year, wasn't he?
