Re: Regular Season Rumors

I like our rotation as is. Darvish comes back soon. Monty has been an incredible 6th man. I'd like to see Mills get a shot as a spot starter and Butler at some point should be back too. Wouldn't be bad to invest in another starter but I wouldn't give up what it would take to get Bundy, unless he get...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I've liked Lugo for some time too, but for all those same reasons are probably why the Mets won't trade him for anything short of a good haul. They should do some rebuilding and he's controllable and effective.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

I remember Brett at BN had a nice writeup on Amaya a year or two ago and I've kept an eye on him since. Glad to see his raking.

What are the thoughts on Ademan now? He's struggling at the plate but still has loads of potential and is young for the level, right?

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Riley Thompson, 11th rounder: Thompson has an electric fastball. He sits in the mid-90s even late into games and can push his heater up to 98 -- or even 100. His breaking ball can be an excellent pitch, too. But he hasn't had the stats to match the stuff this season, with a 6.82 ERA in 33 innings fo...

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

No Luke Heimlich through two days. Honestly, I'll consider this whole draft a win as long as we don't pick him. The Cubs don't need the bad publicity, but I wonder on a more societal level whether he should forever be barred based on a teenage mistake (his claims of innocence not withstanding). The...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I like Archer. I'm still made we traded him. At the same time, there are better fits vs. what we'd have to give up.

(On the other hand, the Rays traded Colome for much less than expected so who knows)

Projectable but super raw and incredibly overdrafted. We're eyeing someone later aren't we?

Re: 2018 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

I like the Hoerner pick. Some upside and presumable saves some money for later picks. He was a guy I was hoping for if some other things didn't fall into place.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Is Eddie Butler just dead? I know it's not like he's integral to the team but he had good outings earlier and I'd rather see him get another shot before Luke Farrell. Shouldn't he be back from the DL?

Re: Regular Season Rumors

The Rangers have acquired lefty Michael Roth from the Cubs, according to a club announcement. He had been pitching on a minor-league deal. Roth, 28, last appeared in the majors — quite briefly — with the Rangers back in 2016. He has thrown 36 total innings at the game’s highest level. In 29 2/3 fra...

Re: Butler to 10 Day DL (Groin/shenanigans), Luke Farrell Up

I was gonna say "Luke Farrell of all people?" but Mills and Tseng haven't looked great in Iowa so far and they want a longman in the pen and probably wanna see what they have in son of John (otherwise just call up Zastrysny).
