Re: 2018 AFL

Bailey Clark is now in the game. And getting rocked. I was disappointed with FB velocity only being in the 94-96 range in a short burst. And thought his infield defense could’ve helped limit some of that damage. Yeah he was throwing some heat but not well commanded tonight. Almost threw two over th...

Re: 2018 AFL

Yeah, and Statcast isn't perfect either. I mean that guy isn't running in a straight line out there. How are those computers supposed to tell? You simply cannot accurately identify the speed of a two different moving objects. Baseballs are round and small. Human beings are a completely different sha...

Regular Show wrote:Nico seems to have adapted to the better pitching in the AFL. Not saying I would do this or Cubs management, but he could start next season at AA.

Most likely he starts at High-A alongside Ademan and Amaya.

Don't know what the FO is thinking, but I'd have no problem that.

Re: Minor League Musings place holder.

Did I miss something? Alzolay had a lat injury and that was it, to my knowledge. Yeah, what is he talking about? He hurt his arm and has to rehab? What? I'm pretty sure he's fully healthy now. The only mention of this injury to Alzolay has ever been a lat strain. This spring he did injure his ankle...

Phil's announcement must have been a little late. Simon and Jaramillo we knew about. Both played in the DSL this summer, but ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-29-18

Austins Upshaw and Fillere sure fell off the map the season. Still not sure what the Cubs have in Erick Leal, but the numbers sure are encouraging. That AA rotation next year should be fun. Lange, Abbott, Miller, Leal and Clark could all be in that rotation. Due to the logjam in Iowa (assuming not c...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-29-18

I'm planning on watching Little start later tonight to see if he was doing anything different or just got lucky in his 5 inning shutout start today. I wonder about what the Cubs do with higher draft pick arms at the lower levels. There's somewhat of a pattern here that I want to look into. Probably ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-29-18

I guess it's time to rank Delvin Zinn higher than I thought I would on a post-season top 30 list. .333/.419/.410 in 78 August at bats with 11 BB against 18 Ks. The walks have skyrocketed in the last month. In 174 second half ABs he's .299/.351/.345 with 12 BB and 32 Ks. I know he was thought of as a...

Danis Correa (92-94, T95-96 according AZ Phil) pitched in his 2nd game tonight after being shut down due to an undisclosed injury after ExST. Too bad the season ends tomorrow. We never did get to see Estrada. Correa: 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Hopefully, he'll stay healthy and participate in instr...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-26-18

LOL, Velazquez must've put quite a charge into this one. I love how, off the bat, the pitcher points up as if it's a pop up and the ball winds up going over the scoreboard!

I think we hope he becomes what we were hoping for from Chatwood

I'd take a solid BOR from an 11th rounder for sure.

Riley Thompson: 1st inning - 1st 2 FB velos were at 91, later 93 and finished the inning with a swinging K on a 95 mph FB on the outside corner. Couldn't get the curve going leaving them all up without much break. Seemed to not have a feel for it. 2nd inning - 2 fastballs at 94 to the first batter w...

Riley Thompson with another good start. HIs August numbers are very solid. I'll watch the game later and see if any velocities and such are given.

Re: Cole Hamels: Somehow Justin Verlander

So with Yu, Chatwood and Montgomery on the DL, who's the Cubs 5th starter now? Another trade coming? I hope so because the remaining options are Luke Farrell, Duane Underwood, Alec Mills, Jen-Ho Tseng or adding Trevor Clifton or Kyle Ryan to the 40-man roster. I see that Mills is pitching tomorrow, ...

This is an annual league and last year my team had a rash of injuries so I sold off guys for 2nd round picks from the top 2 teams in the league. So I started with the ...
