Re: RE: Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

Weird, guess who is currently 4th on the team in PA, and about to pass up Willson... Never would have guessed that after the demotion and sitting against lefties, but after you think about who else it could be, it makes sense. I probably would've guessed Baez. although he gets somewhat shielded aga...

i can't believe he actually just said neo-nazis have been treated unfairly. At work so unable to check awhile, but did he actually say this? not those exact words. basically that there are 2 sides to every story and nobody is assigning any fault to the 'alt-left'. Oh and that there were good people...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-10-17

Not a big deal , but DSL 1B Luis Hidalgo made his stateside debut tonight for Mesa going 1-for-4 with a double and 2 Ks. The 21-year-old hit .353.419/.521 with 5 HRs and 16/21 BB/K for DSL1 this season. Between 2 VSL and 2 DSL seasons he's hit .282/.361/.431. I'll say. However, if we could somehow ...

i like when he rattles off a list of outfield prospect flotsam as support for the idea that the cardinals OF outlook is better, as if we don't have a bunch of fungible outfielders throughout the minors too. imagine using DJ Wilson, Charcer Burks, Mark Zagunis, etc. as backing for, well, anything to ...

man, fans of other teams in the division are going to be so pissed when some of our lower level players turn into legit prospects in a year or two. And when we can blow past our limits in IFA in a year or two and Theo finds 1-3 more Eloy's, Torres', etc. isn't that no longer an option under the new...

Re: Cubs Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario, Paredes & PTBNL/Cash

I still have a fundamental issue with making trades for the playoffs, as though they aren't only marginal improvements in the crapshoot... but, whatever, it worked out last year. Wilson's around next year, too, though. going into the offseason with CJ, Wilson, Strop, Rondon & Monty (if he's not...

lmao "our team is in free fall and has surrendered eight games in the standings in three weeks but at least we got the cubs to trade a borderline top 100 prospect to make their team better." yikes. aim higher, brewers fans.

Re: Cubs Reportedly Acquire Justin Wilson & Alex Avila for Candelario & Paredes

i'm a bit bummed to see Paredes go, but this is exactly the type of trade to use Candelario on. pretty happy about this. there's so much depth that even if two relievers randomly die like Strop and Rondon did last year, there are enough other options that Maddon shouldn't feel forced into a situatio...
