Today's lineup is in and Soriano sits.

DeJesus RF
Campana CF
Castro SS
LaHair 1B
Stewart 3B
Soto C
Cardenas LF
Barney 2B
Maholm P

So what are we thinking June 1 for Rizzo?

I thought June 23rd was the day where the Cubs would delay his free agency for another season.

Soriano's knee is sore, that's why he is sitting.

and he sucks

Hey he's got 14 RBI's!!! Lol...
.253/.276./303....ugh. Small sample, yes. Still crappy.

This is what teams do when they let a guy wiith a reputation go. Actually, I think it shows some class.

And CubbyBlue, that was your best effort.

I rarely enjoy animated GIF's but that was great.

Old and Blue - while I don't really comment that much, I do try to keep up on reading. Thank you.

14 rbi's is third on the team.

Can't use nobody is getting on base in front of him - .372 is the OBP average among Dejesus, Camp, Lahair, Castro

great work, even without sally struthers!

    who knows where it'll end up. they have a decent amount of excess/blocked infielders as well as c.coghlan if they want to make him there's value to get something done while keeping soler, even.

    it's a bit more muddy now that cueto is the only "hell yeah" FA pitcher left out there.

  • Yes great bat, but very shaky in the field during the playoffs. That won't go unnoticed by this Cubs front office.

  • I would hope not.

  • I fear the Shark will return.

  • So how did the Orioles GM stay cool and collected during that conversation. I imagine he was biting his knuckles quite a bit until the phones hung up.

  • I realize they need to get pitching, but I'd hate to see Soler go. He was channeling Manny in the playoffs -- laying off the low & away stuff and crushing the ball. If he can keep that plate discipline, he could be an absolute beast. Also, his perfect throw may have saved the Cardinals series. Plus, he wears #68.

    Dunno - maybe Shark/Lackey?

  • YES! A 2-way tie for first! I am willing to split the pot right now.

  • That is pretty fucking dumb.

  • "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
