Re: Donny Buntball has passed

Wasn't there a joke on the cubs.com board about Augie Ojeda being like his favorite because he seemed to play more than he should? Ojeda and Baylor was Dusty and Macias/Neifi before Dusty/Macias/Neifi was a thing. I could also be totally making this up.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I also enjoy that stuff. And there's plenty of former Cubs abroad: KBO: Jae Kuk Ryu, Brooks Raley, Jake Brigham, Donn Roach, Carlos Villanueva (non-Cubs: Jeff Manship, Alexi Ogando, Anthony Ranaudo) Japan: Casey McGahee, Kosuke Fukudome (yep), Marcus Mateo, Spencer Patton, Jay Jackson, Kyuji Fujikaw...

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Staggeringly small sample size alert, but 2017 pick Ben Hecht, since the promotion to Eugene, has recorded every out via K.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Damn, Fowler, Kaprelian and Mateo for Gray. That's a nice haul for Oakland.

At the same time, Yanks held onto Frazier, Gleybar, Sheffield and others.

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

Kinda bummed to have to deal Paredes here but no doubt Wilson is a good get this year and next. Insurance at closer too if we don't bring back Davis.

I just noticed Paul Blackburn has pitched 32 innings for the A's this year while doing a great Eddie Butler impression (2.25 ERA but with 3.4 k/9 and a 1.20 K/BB)

And Howie Kendrick to the Nats. None of these trades make sense for the acquiring teams. Is this bizarro world?

Oh big time.

I also remember posters there and here mocking my posts because I was a kid (not on skyballer level, tho). To be fair, I had some dumb opinions back them. But also, I'm now 30 so feel free to feel old.
