The catch is whoever gets Castro must also take Crane Kenney. This condition drastically cooled the trade market for Starlin Castro.

Has anyone noticed that the girl wearing the SnorgTees T-shirt that says, "Meh" looks like she's related to former Guns N Roses guitarist Slash? Sweet Child 'O Mine, indeed!

Funny, I can't make my mind think of Slash when I see her.

By the way, according to my daughter's animal books, a goat says "maa" and a sheep says "baa."

Your daughters books are correct. I'm questioning our daughter's See n Say that tells us a rabbit says boing, boing, boing. That's not what a fucking rabbit says.

That meh girl should start a new genre of porn. Hipster porn.

Hipster porn

Newport, a quick Google search would show you that genre of porn already exists. I mean, come on. Do your research.

I would watch it

Goldstein mock draft has Cubs taking Zunino.

They were talking about Castro on the Score 670 ( Chicago) today and said with his footwork
the only place to move him to is 3rd base.
Felt like calling and telling them Az. Phil said his best defensive position is 2nd base.

No way Theo trades him.

a very goatse post

In the duh files...

Garza/Yankees/Red Sox rumors begin floating.

@keithlaw: Cubs claimed RHP Jairo Asencio off waivers from Cleveland, designated RHP Michael Bowden for assignment

Bowden did look awful. Maybe they just wanted a last look to remind themselves not to make a similar mistake next week.

he'll most certainly clear waivers and be assigned to Iowa.

One of the Cubs interns must have pulled off the Bowden-Asencio transaction, as everyone knows that Theo and Jed are only focused on the draft right now...

Nice art Tim.

I was hoping you would have done something on: "Cubs Braintrust Huddles For Draft", but may e next time...

Cool!

Thanks E-Man. I gotta read about the draft here before I understand what the hell's going on. For as oddly slow and redundant and filled with losing this season is, there's actually so much going on I can't keep up.

  • Before Wood,Strop, Rondon yesterday

    Elias: 99 yrs. since a bullpen threw at least 7 perfect innings. last time 6/23/17 by Boston. Ernie Shore retired last 26 after Babe Ruth ejected for arguing balls and strikes after walking lead off hitter. Runner was caught stealing.

  • CUBBIES-4-EVER: It's not ten days including the day the player was Designated for Assignment, it's ten day from the day the player was Designated for Assignment. 

    So because Neil Ramirez was Designated for Assignment on 5/21, the deadline to either assign the player to another club (MLB or minor league) or release the player is 5/31 (today).

  • He's had so few save opportunities that it might be difficult for him to get the All Star nod but Rondon has an absolutely ridiculous 1.05 ERA and 1.06 FIP after this game so far (and I think his worst outing was in the 10th inning non save situation) so I do absolutely think he is worth considering.

  • wood(4)/grimm/strop/rondon combine for 7ip 0h 0bb 8K

    nasty.

  • 3ip 0h 0bb 3k for t.wood...nice.

    28 pitches.

    wonder if they'll let him go another.

    4ip 0h 0bb 4k...and probably done f'real this time. 43 pitches and in line for the win.

  • Depends how long he'd be gone but if not too long I would assume they'll use Wood or Cahill and limit them to 4 or 5 innings and call up a reliever to use in the bullpen.

  • hopefully it's a carlos-zambrano-special and he just needs to drink more water and less coffee+redbull before starts.

  • Assuming Hammel needs some DL time for the hammy, who do the Cubs call up: Glasnow or Taillon? Too many starting pitching prospects at Iowa to choose from.
