We already busted a nut to that news yesterday.

Why would they non-tender Castillo? His performance this year should lead to a team friendly arb price.

Watkins has played a bunch of outfield this year at Iowa... thanks to the disaster in the OF known as Josh Vitters.

If you look throughout the season, Russell has been given cautionary rest because of the hammys.

Move on everyone. It's hard to critcize Al for tempering expectations, when the man just sat through every hour of that water-logged homestand.

Vogelbach wouldn't sniff the DH role on the Cubs over Schwarber.

I can't believe I got ridiculed a while back, for saying that Soler will be the opening day RF next April.

You mean the kid that Baez hit a bomb off in the futures game? :)

He does NOT have the right to opt out for free agency. Just arbitration.

Don't look now, but CJ Edwards is returning to dominance.

Schwarber will fix that by next July.

Baez is unreal. His bombs travel so far that they count in two different leagues.
Commented on Eric Jokisch: Wrong Place, Wrong Time on Aug 26 2014, 12:40a
Very exciting. But, Soler will probably rest. 2 days on... 1 day off. They've been careful with him, given the hamstrings.

Also remember that the Cubs scout who rec'd Schwarber, had been watching him for years since high school.

Yes, but if there's not enough playing time to go around for guys who should be in a lineup everyday...

He's never been a hard thrower. But the deception in his delivery and late movement fool the hitter and make his pitches appear faster.
