Re: Minor League Musings

Vance Vizcaino? David Masters? Jerrick Suiter? Who the horsefeathers are these guys? Did the I Cubs put up a help wanted sign at a Country Kitchen? And Corey Black? Hasn’t he been out of baseball for like 5 years?

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

We need to scoop up Gausman, if for no reason than if we fail to do so, he’s destined to become a 12 time CY Young winner with the Cardinals.

Re: Addison Russell

I’m sure he’ll land on his feet someplace where character (or lack there of) isn’t an issue. Are the Astros in the market for a middle infielder?

Re: Addison Russell

How about sending him to Boston for Jackie Jr.? Both are provide above average defense at a quality position, both are capable of above average offense.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I was bored and ultimately wound up at Lester Strode’s Wikipedia page. This was the final sentence:

Despite being one of the few openly black bullpen coaches in the league, Strode is not believed to be a managerial candidate for the team. [6]


Can anyone else spot what’s wrong with this sentence?

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Wow, just learned that Yelich’s out for the season. A team with a -27 run differential shouldn’t even be above .500, let alone in contention. Take away 7.1 WAR player, and they’re pretty much sunk.

I guess that essentially takes on one contender in our quest for an extra game.

Re: Zobrist Begins Minor League Rehab

Zobrist isn’t in the I Cubs lineup today, and while he’s still on their roster, he’s not listed as on the bench per the box score. Could he be on his way up soon?

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

I knew he’d fallen off the past few years, but I didn’t realize how sickeningly awful he’d been. It’s kind of like the Maldonado acquisition, only the opposite.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-31-19

Let’s keep Brailyn nice and safe and healthy.

In non-prospect news, I wonder how long before Danny Hultzen’s called up. His line so far is respectable, though not awe-inspiring, and he could be an answer to the desperation for a lefty reliever.

Re: Trade targets 2019

Schwarber, Russell, Happ, + Chatwood + 1 Iowa Shuttle pitcher for Soler, Diekman, + Kennedy. KC needs 2B, CF, and DH (after trading Soler). Chatwood + Iowa pitcher can vie for rotation spots. Cubs get bullpen help and replacement for Schwarber. Money is fairly neutral making PTR happy. I’ll assume ...

Re: Robel Garcia promoted

His Ruthian start is more than likely a Jake Fox/Bryan LaHair-esque apparition. This being said, when you’re a contender, having such a thing is quite valuable. That and the fact that he’s not Daniel DeScalso makes him alright in my book.

It seems like only yesterday when Javy was struggling in Iowa and people wanted to trade him before he lost value. Just sayin’.

Ah, the gritty, white, journeyman, middle infielder in the midst of a career season. Those always prove to be worthy investments.
