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, 8-1-19

Can’t help but notice the lack of Chase Strumpf for about a week. Doesn’t seem to be on the IL. Anyone know what’s going on there?

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’.

Re: RE: Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-2-19

Passantino was nasty again for Iowa What’s this guys story? I say BN or Cubs Prospect guy tweet he didn’t top like 86 tonight. Does he have Hendricks like command? Is his delivery incredibly deceptive? Sorry. I hope I didn't come off as having seen his outing. I was just going off of the box score....

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-25-19

As long as the not-so dynamic duo of Russell and DeScalso continue to combine to form the biggest black hole in baseball and Zo continues to sulk at home or church or wherever he does his sulking, I see no reason not to give Robel a look-see.

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

The Athletics have selected the contract of right-hander Brian Schlitter from Triple-A Las Vegas, the team announced. He’ll take the 25-man spot of closer Blake Treinen, whom the A’s placed on the injured list Saturday, and give the club a full 40-man roster.


Too many puns for me to pick just one.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-6-19

When did we pick up Jun Tazawa? I know he’s many moons separated from greatness (or even goodness,) and Kimbrel makes him that much more an afterthought, but it’s a fairly big name to be that under the radar.

If/when Morrow returns, we will be looking at a very sick bullpen:

Kimbrel
Morrow
Strop
Edwards
Monty
Some mix of Brach/Cishek/Kintzler/Chatwood

On a random note, can anyone guess whose draft day report this is? ______ is a toolsy high school center fielder who was gaining momentum as the weather in the Northeast warmed up. He looks more like a football safety -- his position in high school -- than a center fielder, but has the tools to play...
