Re: The Des Moines shuttle

Did Zastrysny die or something? Why is Floro constantly getting the call?

There were still a lot questions entering the season but I didn't expect them to be this bad. Basically all their good young SPs took a step back this year and Franco and Herrera have looked lost at the plate.

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

Look no further than Iowa; we just locked up former Nationals great and first round pick Ross Detwiler. Cubs signed LHP Ross Detwiler to a minor league contract. The veteran left-hander was cut loose by the Athletics in mid-May after posting an uninspiring 6.43 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 12/8 K/BB ratio acr...

Is it odd we haven't drafted a single catcher or corner infielder yet?

Re: The Des Moines shuttle

Farewell, Jake Buchanan. Enjoy your WS ring. The Reds announced that they’ve claimed right-hander Jake Buchanan off waivers from the Cubs and designated minor league outfielder Peter O’Brien for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Buchanan, it seems, will be added to the Major League ro...

Re: The Starting Pitching Trade Candidates

My friend who's a Phillies fan is convinced someone is gonna give them a couple of really good prospects for Jeremy Hellickson. Hellickson has a 3.6 (!) K/9 this year. Yesterday he gave up 7 runs on 8 hits and 4 walks through 5 innings and now has a 5.49 FIP. Probably should keep dreaming, buddy. Re...

Re: Fun early season stats (2017 edition)

I'd say Alex Gordon is having a forgettable season:

.175 .294 .212 .505 with no homers and just 5 extra base hits (all doubles) through 39 games.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

The Tigers optioned Anibal Sanchez to AAA.

He has a 9.00 ERA this season and is allowing 14 hits per 9 IP. He has a 5.65 ERA over the last three years.

The Matt Garza trade (the first one) lives on.

Rosscup called up from AAA, Floro back down, 40 man move pending.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Just finished the Verducci book. Really good stuff in there. Some cool stories about the start of the rebuild, Maddon's background, etc. The bit about the team meeting during the rain delay was great.

Re: Stock Up/Stock Down

Is Dillon Maples a stock up guy? His numbers look pretty solid and he's been healthy for the first time in literally forever. Think he gets a bump up to AA to see how he fares?

Re: Eddie Butler Starting Friday

I would really rather them give it to Monty, but at least Butler is a candidate for starts down the stretch and next season. The reports have generally been positive on him this season, no? I'd be annoyed if the start was given to some AAAA scrub.

Re: Fun early season stats (2017 edition)

The Angels are in second place, despite: - After Trout (2.2), the highest bWAR on the team is .8 (career backup catcher Martin Maldonado) - Other than Trout, only two players have an OPS above .680 (Yunel Escobar and 21 at bats from Luis Valbuena) - Injuries to the bullpen have left Bud Norris (yup)...

Re: Szczur DFA; Zastryzny called up

That's.... disappointing.

I know we weren't going to get much but I'd have thought we could at least get an intriguing low-level arm. Not a 26 year old in AA.

Re: The Des Moines shuttle

Is Pierce Johnson on the 40 man? Would be interested in what he could do as a long reliever. Also guessing Butler stays down and Monty joins the rotation?
