Okay, Peter Gammons tweeted about a Minor League Player. It was Javy Baez, but still. That should say a little something. If we're going to lose 90+ games this year, trade away decent players to get prospects back and there's no pressure to win, let the kid play in Wrigley.

He's not Dave Scott. This front office won't send him to Siberia after hitting .086 in April. Put him at 3rd, Castro at SS, and let's have some fun.

Or, we can follow the plan, let him get used to off-speed stuff, and not have to rush his arbitration clock.

it's that whole "starting his arbitration clock" thing...

he stays in the minors for long enough in 2013 and the cubs get to keep him for another year before exposing him to free agency.

ready or not for the bigs they probably won't start his clock even if an injury opens up a position.

there's not a lot of fun to look forward to in this crew of 25 expected to break with the club...even less to look forward to if garza/s.baker don't return and have a good/great may/june leading up to the trade deadline.

Demp won't be able to mess up this trade deadline.

I don't disagree at all with getting him at bats but I wonder how important the arb stuff is. This sounds like a kid who is going to be locked into a long term contract early in his career. Although given his cockiness he may not go for that.

They'll wait until a/ he's ready. or b/ when he might be ready and adding him might make them a playoff team.

Neither case is this year. Save the 40 Man slot for someone else.

deleted double post..

miguel tejada still "got it"...

"He's not Dave Scott. "

Dave Scott was probably better than Gary Scott.

  • BRADSBEARD: Javier Assad was still pitching into the 6th inning, and the first batter he faced reached base on an E-4 (that was Assad's 70th and final pitch of the game). Then Leathersich relieved Assad and retired the second batter 4-3 on the first pitch of the AB (the runner at 1st base advanced to 2nd on the play), and then on an 0-1 pitch the third batter in the inning (second one faced by Leathersich) lined into an inning-ending 6-4 DP (baserunner doubled off 2nd base). When calculating GO/AO, double plays and triple plays count as only one out.

  • OK -- my 4th of July resolution is to try to stay more positive. So -- 10 games to the AS break, meaning the Cubs will be in first place at the break! First time since...2008? Also, hopefully, Willson, KB and Javy learned something about Familia yesterday that they can use in the future.

  • Hmmm, my math might be fuzzy but if he retired 3 batters with 3 pitches, how did he get a 1/1 GO/AO ratio?

  • Pls DFA Peralta when Richard comes back. Richard 1 IP, O R, O ER, 0 BB, 2 Ks in first rehab appearance. We really need to trade for a LHRP.

  • "The Boston Red Sox were banned from signing any international players for the next year and had five of their teenage prospects declared free agents on Friday after a Major League Baseball investigation showed they circumvented signing-bonus rules last year, a source familiar with the situation told Yahoo Sports."

  • The thing with Heyward is its not just free agency. He is way under performing his career #s. He's making the same % of contact but his soft contact is much higher and hard contact much lower than all his previous years so there is something very specifically going on this year causing the issues. Chances are he will eventually get back to his previous #s and it's better to get the slump now and get that hot run later but I wish I knew what is different about this year. He's either just not seeing the ball as well or a swing change is causing it.

  • Only 3 pitches for Leathersich. Not much of a rehab outing.

    Thanks for the reporting Phil.

  • He's the nastiest pitcher I've seen in awhile. I'm gonna give them all a mulligan on this one.

    Coghlan's strike out was more disappointing. He was fighting off a lot of pitches and not swinging at crap, and on the last pitch, he swung at stuff he was laying off, and struck out.

    And Heyward, too. I don't blame Heyward - I blame free agency. I hate it. You almost never get a valid return on the investment.

    I look forward to the day when ball players own the teams. The current economics are not sustainable.

  • Oh, I'm sure you're right. He's not 27-27 in saves for nothing. But, man, I hope they learned last night that he didn't throw a single pitch in the zone to KB, Contreras or Baez, and they all just kept swinging.

  • Sounds like a much better game than last night's fiasco in Flushing.

    Old and Blue 12 hours 45 min ago view
  • I'm pretty sure it looks like a sweet pitch on the way in. How many sinkers like that are there at 98 mph? I agree that they should just do a Lackey and stand their with their bat on their shoulders until he throws a strike next time, but I can see how that's hard to do.

    The bullpen, on the other hand, is a mess, and Heyward is starting to piss me off.
