Re: Darvish to DL, Tricep Tendonitis

If it’s something serious I hope he/they don’t horsefeathers around with it though and try to do that PRP injection stuff and just opt for surgery to get it out of the way. I know it’s easy to say on a message board to “just get surgery” but that injection procedure never seems to work . Bartolo Co...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-26-18

Erich Uelmen is joining Thompson and Lange among 2017 draftees having their best pro starts this weekend...5 shutout so far for South Bend with 8 Ks, 1 BB, a 6/2 GO/AO, and 3 hits allowed.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-24-18

I'm glad I don't hate his delivery. The combo of health, spin, and better than expected control and command keep me optimistic about Lange's summer velocity.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-25-18

Nice to see Ademan string together a couple games. There's some swing and miss early and he's not hitting for much power so far, but there's plenty of ball left and contextually as a 19 YO SS in proooobably the toughest park to hit in the system he could be doing worse. I think the wOBA on the seaso...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

I like Hannah a bunch. If we were going to under slot a college guy in the 1st, I think he's my top choice. I might agree with this since intuitively it seems like he has more starting potential than say a Larnach due to bringing speed and defense to the table. Larnach strikes me as a Seth Smith ty...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Well of course he is. I wasn't comparing Rolison and Zastryzny as prospects, but comparing the situations. (i.e. a guy who wasn't great most of the year, but who happened to have a terrific start in his conference tourney in front of the FO; leading them to select him) I don't buy it. Rolison was a...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-23-18

Lange’s start took him up to a 16.8% K-BB rate on the season to go with 0 HRs allowed in 42 IP. Fangraphs has him with a 49.2% GB and 25%(!!) IFFB rates, though I don’t know how accurate these are.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-23-18

Lange's throwing his changeup with success again so far tonight. I know this isn't the first start he's used the pitch aggressively along with the breaking ball this year. He came into the year with questions about a third pitch, his ability to throw strikes, and (since he was and is a flyball pitch...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Those are the kind of prospects that fill out of a draft behind some big spending up top. Lopez is perfect for that kind of draft in the rounds 3-10 range, college arm that can start in the lower minors to gain experience and innings before converting to a reliever with an interesting arm angle from...

Heck, if I'm being fair ... I'm not so sure the Cubs future is necessarily better than the Nationals. I really love Soto, and a core of Soto/Robles/Turner/Rendon plus Scherzer/Strasburg in the short term, and an ownership that you know will spend ... is very, very tantalizing. Sure, KB/Rizzo/Contre...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

Murray's something like 5'10" and maybe he's up to 200 pounds. Next year, 5 years removed from HS, he'll be 22 in August and a one year quarterback at a Big 12 school. That's a 6th-7th round pick if some NFL GM is feeling nuts and really closer to UDFA material. There's few real doubts what pro...

Water gun to face I would take Rolison over Gilbert. RHs with Gilbert’s stuff are a dime a dozen....Neither guy does it for me at 24 as the Cubs don’t *need* anything more from the farm this decade, but Rolison’s got the pitches to do what Little was probably hoped to do last year I think Gilbert en...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

I’d eat a half gallon of almond milk ice cream to get Callis’ Rocker mock or that Weathers mock to come true

I like Ryan Rolison, a healthy college lefty with 95 and his breaking ball is pretty rare, but he’s the kind of guy I’d ve ecstatic to land at 63 and meh at 24.

Uh, I responded to what you SAID. YOU SAID they hadn't spent big on pitching. Concepcion was 6 mill. Albertos got 1.5 which was definitely a top 3-5 bonus that year for pitching.
