Cubs New Strategy: Own Everyone

The Cubs seem to be intent to on playing Monopoly with the entirety of future position prospects as rumors from Buster Olney indicate they may be in the lead to acquire Cuban outfielder/infielder Rusney Castillo. Own the entire board and they'll have to come to you and pay overmarket prices for your property.

  • Yeah... that was some very athletic stuff from Willson in the 9th. Impressive.

    I think Chapman and Wood both need 2 days off -- rosters expand, bring 'em up!

    Cubs now 41-15 in August in the Maddon era. That'll do. That will effing do.

  • 31 pitches, 2 hits, 1 walk, and 3 wild pitches later...the cubs win by 1.

    contreras snagged some other potential wild pitches in this chapman appearance.

    22 wins in august. woo.

  • Down on the farm:

    "Dealin'" Cease with another good outing for Eugene. Last 4 outings: 16IP, 1ER 29K. But, 10BB. Throw strikes, kid.

    Candelario is killing it at Iowa after struggling at AA: .320/.406/.941 in 241AB. At age 22. Where the heck to put him next year?

    UPDATE: Candy goes 3-5 tonight. Now hitting .325. Also, Almora 4-5, which is nice to see.

  • he's attempting a comeback (or he's just very bored) and playing indie ball in the atlantic league...short-lived-cub brad snyder is also on his team.

    very boring numbers for a guy with his experience in indie ball, though not bad numbers...probably not enough to get him a minor league deal at his age (33)

  • Didn't LaHair hit 36 before the All Star Break? Then none after.

  • @CarrieMuskat 41s41 seconds ago Bryant is 1st #Cubs player to top 35 HRs since Aramis Ramirez hit 38 in 2006

    surprised me, thought Soriano may have or Rizzo...maybe LaHair or Schierholtz too :)

  • Twitter tells me more boo's than cheers for LaStella.

    Sigh.

    What was the reaction in Chapman's first game? I was there about a week later and it was all cheers.

    Not that the situations are a one-to-one, but...damn, priorities 'Murica.
