Wow... the Pirates have scored 8 runs in the 10th....

Yeah dave, that's an unusual line: Pirates 10, Reds 2, Bottom 10th.

this game needs more less sucking.

and lots more hom rons.

go bases balls.

tie game.

MIL and HOU have lost, so even if if the comeback fails atleast all we lose is a game off the sked.

Hey..another Cub gets picked off and costs the Cubs a run!!! It must be a Friday night game...or a Monday...or a Wednesday...

Or any game that the Cubs are involved in!!!!


this inning rocks.

Hell yeah Crunch!!!

I KNEW it was worth staying up late for this one!

Hey this is actually fun! Anyone notice how none of the hits in the 7th were on the first pitch? PLEASE tell me the Cubs noticed...

this new inning kinda sucks.

Lol...Hey Gooz...the frying pan, or the fire?

oh that's right - the real problem is the craptastic relief corps.

that game was a huge pile of wtf.

bob howry - you are a disgustingly overpaid disgrace. please go away.

This team is so easy not to like.

oh - and bob, take scotty eyre with you....thanks.


someone should tell that piece of crap Howry that he is not going to be effective throwing fastballs at 91 and no breaking ball.

i am wondering why lou pulled wuertz out...he throws 6 pitches in the 7th and mows them down..he in a big hurry to get to howry? LOL

I think by now Sweet Lou must think he was run over by an elderly Florida driver in December and has been in hell ever since.

  • "The Seattle Mariners have agreed to trade slugger Mark Trumbo to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for catcher Steve Clevenger, a source confirmed to ESPN's Jim Bowden."

    yeah, that steve clevenger.

  • St Louis offered $30MM less than around $185MM or $26MM per year. When those type of numbers and details are released, it is rarely just pulled out of thin air. Sounds pretty legit that they put up a bit of a fight.

  • Where did you get 30ish number?

  • Close second to Ronny

  • Dumber than Ronny Cedeno?

  • runner-up seems to be as strong as in the bidding as it gets aside from winning the bid.

    STL has money to spend, but how much they were willing to spend was up in the air...and now they threw around a 30m-ish offer to a top FA pitcher.

  • You believe they were in the bidding, I have an ice rink on Clark to sell you

  • Oh God, no Adam Eaton he's dummber than a bag of wet hair. keep him awsy

  • Edit: Not advocating for Miller, just pointing out it has more legs than some of these other guys.

    There's this: (link is external)

    #Braves are smitten with Jorge Soler, person said. Julio Teheran likely wouldn't get it done. Could Miller spark interest from #Cubs?

  • Jorge Soler:
    2016: $3M
    2017: $3M
    2018: $4M (or salary arbitration 2018-20)
    2019: $4M (or salary arbitration 2019-20)
    2020: $4M (or salary arbitration 2020)



    1. Carlos Carrasco
    2016: $4.5M
    2017: $6.5M
    2018: $8M
    2019: $9M (club option with $662,500 buy-out)
    2020: $9.5M (club option with $662,500 buy-out)

  • wow, so STL is ready to throw 30m down on a pitcher? yow...that changes the offseason outlook a bit.

  • it seems greenkey is supposedly not going to be a cub so it leaves cueto or trade...or scrap heap.

    rather than 1000000 articles linking the cubs to zimm/price, that leaves 10000000 articles about heyward to be written (and therefore soler-trade speculation).

  • Guess who was runner-up in the Price is Right?

  • the more pieces that fall, the more it seems like soler is going to be playing in ATL next year.
    Not a fan of ex-cardinals. It was tough enough watching Jim Edmonds.
    Hope they don't go after Shelby GT Miller

  • greenkey, cueto...or...umm...a trade with ATL?


    i haven't heard the cubs linked to greenkey, but there were 100000 articles about whether the cubs would be snagging zimmerman or price.

    the more pieces that fall, the more it seems like soler is going to be playing in ATL next year.

  • Price to Bosox 7/217

    According to Rosenthal and boston globe

    Sorry for the hijack, Phil.

    ~edit~ op out after year 3, no money deferred
