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.

  • Did anybody see that Zobrist strikeout?

    That was extremely disappointing.

  • Strangest win of the year, and one of the sweetest. Twice I thought it was easily in the bag, then after the first 2 hitters in the 9th I thought all was lost. Big game for Grimm, Strop & Rondon. But, man, those Cards can hit for power.

  • Very satisfying, gut-check win today. The beers on the trip back to Chicago are going to taste fantastic.

  • It's still very early but this game felt very important to me and probably knocked 2 years off my life. Seemed like every inning was big.

  • Yes then they moved him two spot then not so much, back batting 7th

  • This is the exact game that the Cubs would have lost in years past to the Cardinals.

  • Arrieta starting. Leads of 6-1 and 9-4. You don't expect to have such a sense of relief when they win.

  • At least the end result was worth the wait.

  • I guess he's better than what they've had. He started out like the Babe there.

  • Fair enough, but Castro isn't really very good.

  • I can just hear Pat Hughes chortling "typical Cubs-Cards game..."

  • As long as Maddon uses him against RH he is good. Against LH - not so much.

    His recent HR's obviously have not been great pitches.

    So, let's just say my personal confidence in the guy is not there yet.

  • not that I'm agreeing with E-Man in anyway here, but Warren's FIP and peripherals are not really good (5.20 FIP/5.19 BB/9/.128 BABIP), although his actual results are a lot better. Well until today...

    Trade was also to make room for Zobrist and it'll be a few years before we can really judge it.

  • Eventually, the Maddon "play everyone everywhere" thing was going to create a problem.
