Re: Cubs TV Deal Stuff

Rosenthal discusses tv deals and the NL Central a bit in his latest article. Summary is that the Cardinals, in his estimation, have the capacity to sign a guy like Price and a Heyward/Davis. http://www.foxsports.com/mlb/story/jordan-zimmermann-signs-with-detroit-tigers-hot-stove-rumors-free-agency-c...

Re: Shark Thread

Kaplan said window, I should have clarified. As pointed out above, I think he meant maximizing resources while Arrieta is still under control for two more seasons.

Re: Shark Thread

From Kaplan, and any necessary precautions that entails: Cubs and Samardzija have obvious mutual interest, but many teams on Samardzija, "won't come cheap" Doesn't see Price as a realistic option. Will command too much $ Cubs in on Lackey, might take 3 years if they want him. Cubs are tryi...

Re: Unusual CF idea(s)

I remember speculation about Pollock and the Cubs during the draft. The Hendry/ND connection was the main driver behind that. The Cubs never got the chance, he went 17th in 2009 and the Cubs went with Jackson at number 31. I remember a lot of the Pollock talk being met with some negativity at the ti...

Jay Jaffe with an interesting analysis on who the Cubs should root for tonight. If you don't want to read it, his opinion is that the Cubs would be better off facing the Dodgers.

I will be in NYC that evening too with my wife. Anniversary trip. She didn't even protest the idea of catching the game somewhere.

No plans yet on where exactly to go. Jersey gave me some suggestions that I am exploring.

Re: 9/21 Brewers (Peralta) @ Cubs (Hammel) 7:05 PM CSN

Looks like the Pirates are lining up Cole, Liriano, and Burnett for our series. Currently showing Haren in Game 1. Is this accurate? I see it as Friday: Liriano vs Haren Saturday Cole vs Lester Sunday Burnett vs Hammel( but maybe Arrieta moves up to this spot because of the off day Thursday?) Depen...

Re: 9/10 Cubs (Arrieta) @ Phillies (Morgan) 6:05 PM CST, CSN

Hopefully they can start and Arrieta isn't wasted in a 2 inning performance followed by a long delay. I think he's better off staying on normal rest. The Cardinals didn't have much luck when they gave Lynn, Wacha, and Martinez a break. Hard to believe Arrieta has been as consistently dominant as he ...

Re: Postseason Ticket Lottery

I too was there for Game 3 in 2007 to see my favorite pitcher serve up the meatball on the first pitch of the game. Even being down 0-2 in the series, Wrigley had such a great feel to it. Well, until the first pitch of the game. I figured this was coming soon. I had to have my Season Ticket order pl...

Re: What's your wish list for the trade deadline?

Gordo says no way on Hamels due to budget reasons. Kaplan says Cubs are strongly pursuing Hamels. Both posted their stories within a couple hours of one another.

I wonder if they can both be wrong?

Re: What's your wish list for the trade deadline?

A friend of mine who works for the Reds is convinced that the Reds and Cubs are talking about Marlon Byrd. Personally, I don't see how he fits on the roster. He has a vesting option at 550 plate appearances. He is currently at 283. Denorfia has done really well in that role so I don't really think i...

Looks like Montero is expected to be out longer than 15 days.

Schwarber is going to have to catch, forget LF or any other position for a while.

Re: 7/12 white sox (Quintana) @ Cubs (Arrieta) 1:20 CDT, ABC7

Arrieta is sharp today. What a trade. Still under control for two more seasons. He is looking at a nice arbitration raise after this season.
