wow...umpire brad myers (AAA ump) nailed by a ball in the infield coming off the bat of b.phillips in the cle/cin game...screaming line drive to the gut.
he went down hard. took him 2-3 minutes to get up off the ground and he was taken off in the cart. cap tip and all that...he got rung hard, but he seems to be okay.
LAA batting former disappointing former Cubs infielders 4th, 5th, and 6th. Nice. And so far they are 1-2 with a BB and SO against E. Jackson.
I'm also anticipating a big day for Rizzo after his success against Colon the other day. Blanton is a similar pitcher, I think, and the wind is supposed to be blowing out to RF.
Cubs Shrink Got Shrunk
Would like to know why Ricketts' wanted him around
#Cubs @mike_olt scratched because of fatigue in right shoulder. Renteria: "We're looking to keep him healthy." Not serious
Olt says right shoulder will undergo more treatment today, believes he could play 3b as soon as Tuesday night if all goes well
How about you like to play stellar defense? Make that one of your goals, please.
Nice video. I agree that if he can make his changeup work, it could be brutal. His curveball is nice, but probably won't fool too many big leaguers.
As anticipated, Baez is playing 2B today.
"Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias says he has stress fractures in both legs and isn't sure when he'll be able to play again,"
Bob from Niles?
HAGSAG: Roney Alcala was converted to catcher last season and I would expect him to arrive in Mesa for Extended Spring Training if not sooner.
Also, Gleyber Torres is back on the field and he played in the game versus the IPL (International Prospect League) showcase team yesterday morning at the Under Armour Performance Center at Riverview Park in Mesa. I saw most of the game but not all of it, so I won't post a box score.
The Cubs starting lineup was:
Trade to the Bears for Jordan Palmer.
I don't know.
AZ Phil, I know the Cubs have historically brought in some Latin youngsters at the end of ST. I was hoping that Roney Alcala would be brought in. He had a big year in the VSL. I believe they were using him as a catcher/first baseman/ third baseman.
Another starting pitcher goes down.
I saw Strickland a lot at Fitch Park. I never saw him wear an actual baseball uniform at Fitch, but he did dress in the same Cubs t-shirt & shorts the players wear on the field during work-outs, and he did occasionally shag flies with the pichers during BP or stand behind the batting cages with the hitting coaches and talk to the hitters between rounds.
I found Sullivan's tone in that article to be pretty rude/stupid, i.e., his usual. He uses "get rid of" a couple of times in relation to the guy...like he had some personal beef with him. Such a miserable guy.
