Re: Sports Media Thread

Haha, that blogger was just tweeting the picture...he never claimed credit. CBS is the culprit here. That's a pretty stupid mistake. But it was corrected. Move along, Arguello. Eh, I'm not sure who is to blame there. Is CBS supposed to be aware of every blogger who might Tweet out a pic (especially...

Re: Sports Media Thread

So Arguello lives in Arizona, and he's the one who got this shot of Heyward. It's a real good ST pic, especially for someone who probably has to shoot over/around a fence: http://www.chicagonow.com/cubs-den/files/2016/02/Jason-Heyward-624x468.jpg Yesterday, another Cubs blog used that pic in this tw...

Re: Fowler

Oh I forgot about #28, I didn't think long enough about who could be a FA. That's a little better, but still a little silly considering they would have 2 other Top 50 picks(including protected #10). Adding a legit MLB OF would make a big difference for them and the impression they're giving off is t...

Re: Fowler

There's a couple teams that have either gotten really silly with pick hoarding, or they're using that as an excuse to be cheap. The White Sox basically lose pick #50 by signing Fowler, that is barely worth anything. A couple million bucks max.

Re: Fowler

If what Olney says is correct and Dex can't find 2/20 out there, at some point, it does become feasible to bring him back and trade Soler + for the best pitching you can get, right? Trade Coghlan, not Soler. Fowler is an upgrade and a much better roster fit than Coghlan, swapping Fowler for Soler d...

Re: Cubs 2016 #1 Prospect

Gimme Contreras. I'm more convinced that his breakout is sustainable(maybe not to his exact AA numbers, but to the extent that he's real) given his tools and peripherals than I am that Torres will do two of 1) add power 2) continue to hit 3) prove to be a MLB SS.

Re: BA Top 31/system ranked 20th....

Assuming that the BA guys put in 4-8 Cubs in the top 100, I think their argument as to why the system, despite having depth, is ranked lower would probably be along the lines of the lack of impact talent at the top of the system right now. Most rankings tend to skew towards giving impact talent mor...

Re: BA Top 31/system ranked 20th....

I don't have a huge issue with the system being ranked as below average, there's a lot of depth but I'm not overly bullish on many of those players. What will be interesting to see is if BA is consistent with that bearish outlook when it comes to the Top 100. The Cubs, for their lack of elite talent...

Re: Minor signings

Teams might have tried to take a chance on the big Murt but he was making a small fortune in Japan mashing and raking. He could never make that sort of money here. I'm sort of surprised he came back, but I think he might have got black balled or something. I think I remember him getting in a fight ...
