A quick tour of some of the Cubs that have been recently vanquished by Jim Hendry and the Hendry-nots
Michael Wuertz - He entered today with 7 scoreless innings, no walks and 9 K's plus a win and a hold. He was called upon today in a tie game with a runner on versus the Yanks and the runner got caught stealing but Wuertz's scoreless streak came to an end with back-to-back doubles followed by back-to-back singles to give the Yanks a two-run lead which the A's subsequently erased to get Wuertz off the hook for the loss.
Felix Pie - Playing left fied mostly for the Orioles with a few stints in center...he's sporting a 135/220/216 line so far with a a home run and 11 K's versus 4 BB's in 42 PA's.
Rich Hill - Expected to begin a rehab assignment later this week that should last the full 30 days.
Luis Montanez - Just got called up by the Orioles to replace the DL'd Ryan Freel. Montanez had a 29-game streak of reaching base in the minors dating back to last year and an OPS at 1.000 so far this season. He went 1-for-5 with a double and a strikeout in his first game back.
Matt Murton - A crowded Colorado outfield forced the Rockies to send Murton to Triple A where he's responded with a 1.169 OPS along with 5 BB's to just one 1 K, plus 5 doubles and 3 HR's.
Scott Eyre - 2.2 perfect innings so far on the season with three strikeouts in five games. Will strikeout lefty for food.
Jerry Blevins - He only got two outs in two outings for the A's before being optioned to the minors. Doing a little better in the minors with a 3.38 ERA in 2 outings.
Sean Gallagher- Three appearances for the A's out of the pen this season, giving up runs in two of them and an 8.10 ERA.
Eric Patterson - Hitting well in Triple A with a 311/415/578 line in 45 AB's.
Jason Marquis - A 4.26 ERA in three starts including a win over the Cubs last week. Just Jason being Jason.
Casey McGehee - Beat out Mike Lamb for a spot on the Brewers bench and saw him play second base last night when Rickie Weeks went out with an injury. Hitting 250/250/250 in just 8 PA's.
Mark DeRosa - Batting just 241/323/431 but with 15 RBI's which is tied for third in the AL (6 of those RBI's came in Saturday's laugher at Yankee stadium).
Kerry Wood - A 6.23 ERA in the early going but 2 of 2 in save opportunities with 9 K's in 4.1 IP.
Bob Howry - A 3.38 ERA in 6 games (5.1 IP) for the Giants, 5 K's to just 2 BB's and no HR's allowed. He has 2 Holds and 1 Blown Save.
Ryan Harvey - 267/290/567 for the Rockies Double A affiliate with 2 HR's in 30 AB's and 8 K's to just 1 BB.
Ronny Cedeno - Has played LF/SS/2B/3B for the Mariners while hitting 174/240/348 in 25 PA's.
Henry Blanco - Blanco has hit 2 HR's for the Padres in 18 PA's for a total line of 188/278/563.
wow, billy joel isn't just playing wrigley in-season...it's like 8-10 ballparks or something.
maybe this will once-and-for-all end this stupid practice once the condition of many playing fields after these concerts are questioned...or maybe they'll learn how to fix fields quicker than they have in the past...or maybe no one will care because revenue is king.
Theo was trying to clear the mess that Hendr left
Rick Renteria was a great idea! Seriously! I feel bad for the guy, although it happened the way it had to.
Hey, whatta bout me?
....and Theo thought EJax, Sveum and Ricky were good ideas. Win some, lose some.
I thought he was better than Archer?
/f u Hendry
The Padres signed RHP Trey McNutt to a minor league contract...
Yeah, she's a good egg. The whole superdelegate thing is shady as fuck though.
the perks of being a
big fundraisermodel representative citizen.
honestly, though...the dnc could do worse and she's involved in all kinds of dem party stuff.
I didn't realize Laura Ricketts is a superdelegate.
pretty much...also agree that it wouldn't surprise me to see him land with the cubs, too.
the trade to free up room for him would be interesting.
it would help if he didn't play such a mixed-bag CF. he's anything but sure out there with his wacky routes.
the O's are favored because of links for weeks and they're about to land y.gallardo (giving up that draft pick).
holy crap...j.mejia got busted AGAIN for PEDs.
3rd time...lifetime ban.
at one point he was the "closer of the future" (and the actual closer) for the mets. 26 years old. unreal.
I agree with what you said, but isn't it so weird that the White Sox are not linked to Fowler? They seem like an ideal fit.
oddly...or not...fowler's been strongly linked to the O's lately.
Olmos takes another 40 man roster Roulette bullet. The new lefty will be gone when Fowler comes back.
seen him in the minors...rather boring lefty. really slow secondary stuff (very slow slider) and a fastball that barely hits 90 on a good day.
