Re: Random Offseason Musings and Rumors

Going off of that, a Phillies beat writer breaks down their 25 man roster and concludes someone probably has to go: http://www.phillyvoice.com/phillies-ope ... l-version/

Alec Asher still has 2 options remaining. Thoughts on him and potentially buying low on Appel?

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

Both got fewer than 200 at bats last year and part of that had to do with Schwarber going down and Fowler missing some time. It really does say a lot about our depth that both guys would barely see the field and could be starters on other teams. That La Stella can only play 2B and 3B hurts, but Szcz...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Obviously they want to get Anderson some starts in while he's healthy and then flip him to a contender during the season.

Re: Random Offseason Musings and Rumors

I'm still a big fan of the quality depth the Phillies have in the upper minors. Most aren't on the same level as those guys but it's a situation to keep an eye on.

That's a shame. Still had hopes to see him get a callup this year/in September.

Re: Is Szczur Gone & 40-Man Roster Discussion

I really like Sxczur (and it also feels like he's been in the organization forever) but without options and guys like Rademacher and Andreoli in Iowa, it makes sense that he'd be a goner.

Re: Cubs Offseason Top Prospects Lists (BA, BP, Sickels, etc)

I agree with Raisin that Callis is still probably the best, at least, as it pertains to Cubs lists. I like that list at first glance ... no real quibbles. Kinda surprised how low these guys are: 22. Alec Mills 23. Rob Zastryzny 24. Pierce Johnson 25. Bryan Hudson 26. Jacob Hannemann 27. Ryan Willia...

Wow. I figured he was good as gone after the season. He'd definitely have made more on the open market. Must love it here and the FO must feel he's 100 percent. I dig it.
