For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick.

Addison Russell 2-2, 2 run HR. Shark who.
Jim Hendry in the crowd at Wrigley tonight (watching Baez).
Jacob Turner will start the suspended game tomorrow.
ejax done after 2.2ip
era crawls above 6.00 on the season (6.09)...with a 1.62 whip
Epic yes, I'm starting to wonder about historic. Cubs website shows EJax to be pitching to a 6.75 ERA over his last 10 starts, pretty much has to go higher after tonight. Wondering how close we're getting to the worst ERA over 10 starts in MLB history.
It's kinda like you said O&B.
Last night Bosio calls Turner:
"Remember Jackson is pitching tomorrow so I want you to prepare as if it's your start - because you will be getting most of the innings on these days..."
I'm sorry, but if you paid for tickets to tonight's EJax game -- that's your own damn fault.
Like "Sharknado 2", he is entertaining because of his epic badness.
I realize the Cubs have been saying they're going to let Jackson work things out for the rest of the season, but my gut tells me this could be it for him. That's a lot of money to wash down the toilet, but you can't just say to the world, "We volunteer to automatically lose every fifth game."
He's going to start on 3 days rest in order to get a better draft pick
coundown until ejax gets demoted to the pen...
speak of depreciating values, looks like Garrett Richards just busted up his knee covering first base...poor Angels.
I agree on depreciating value of pitchers.
What exactly can Rodon have shown in 12 innings? Does this work out a lot for 1st round pitchers.
I dunno. Samardzija coming into today was 3 - 2 , with a 3.21 ERA..0.94 WHIP...6 of 8 starts were quality starts.
He seemed to be pitching pretty well til today.
pitchers are depreciating values, once they show command and control of their pitches I wouldn't worry much about their arbitration or free agency clocks. Get what you can out of them. Less than 1% become aces worthy of worrying about.
So......start his salary arb clock right away....and he's not built his arm up to pitch the MLB workload....and he' s 22?
Giants asked for game to be forfeited by Cubs as well but were denied. Seems harsh.
I presume that's some sort of standard operating procedure.
