Re: Allen Webster up, Morrow to 60-day DL

I've been wondering if they'd do this.

Quite a journey he's had. Once a top 50 prospect, traded to the Red Sox as part of that insane Crawford/Gonzalez/Beckett deal. Fell apart, pitched in Korea, now pitching mostly out of relief, he's regularly in the mid-90s.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Some housekeeping:

Jaime Garcia added to the 40 man, Zagunis put on 60 day DL to make room.

The Angels claimed Luke Farrell off waivers. We DFA'd Mazzoni and Zastryszny but they cleared waivers and were kept in the organization.

Re: Cubs likely to sign Jaime Garcia

He's been ass this year but has been good in the past and it can't hurt to have another lefty who isn't Brian Duensing/Randy Rosario.

Re: Cutch to Yankees

It's crazy to me that Cutch is still just 31.

Also before this, the Yanks were giving outfield innings to Shane Robinson and Neil Walker so I guess this counts as an upgrade.

Also I'd much rather have Bote get regular at bats than have this bigot in the lineup.

Re: Monty to DL

Not sure what sucks more, Monty to the DL or Chatwood taking his start. I'd rather have Underwood or Mills get a spot 3 inning start. And Rosario has been ass recently. Would rather see someone else get the call up but our depth is dwindling. I almost expect another trade before the August 31 deadli...

Re: Cubs get their speedy playoff pinch runner guy

Including the playoffs, he's 0-for-11 with 16 runs scored and 25 stolen bases.

Maybe he gets a couple at bats in September but that doesn't really matter. Having a speedy threat on the bases will be a nice luxury in the playoffs.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

Odd trade. They get a good bench bat but give up an interesting young arm. Bour has nowhere to play really. Santana at first, Franco at 3rd, Hoskins and Nick Williams on the corners. Certainly gives them good insurance/offense off the bench though. They also DFA'd Jake Thompson and I wouldn't mind g...

I can't say I really like this quote from Kohl Franklin btw: I feel like I am 10 times younger than everyone, and it’s just a culture change honestly. There’s a whole lot of Latin Americans on the team, different than what I’m used to. Doesn't mean he's racist, but it certainly doesn't sound great....

Re: Cubs Trade for Brandon Kintzler

I like it, depending on the prospect.

He's not flashy or exiting but gets results. The fact that he gets groundballs and soft contact really helps with our defense. Also nice that he has a low walk rate, considdering some of our other pitchers.....

Re: Sources: Cubs have a deal in place for Cole Hamels

That's a pretty fair deal. Butler is whatever and one of Rob Z/Underwood/Mills could replace his production (heck Farrell and Bass were doing just that while he was on the DL). Lacy is having a nice year but we have other pitchers similar to him so he's not a big loss. I'd still like to add another ...
