Friday Funnies: Starlin Castro trade rumor - who is responsible?

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.

  • AL pitcher hits a home run for a 1-0 lead. There goes perspective

  • Here are the ERAs for the last five starting pitchers:
    3.40
    3.64
    4.28
    4.68
    9.45

    At what point does the manager note it's not the "other pitcher"?

    And why does he start Montero in the middle of a downturn?

  • Some perspective (mostly for my own benefit): Dan Straily beat MadBum 2-1 today as the Reds took 2 of 3 in SF. Giants are 2-9 since the break and their lead over LA is down to 2.5 games. So, yeah...baseball. It'll drive ya nuts.

  • McNutt / Archer didn't work out well for us.

  • The floor is more valuable than the ceiling. It's the same reason we drafted Kris Bryant instead of Jon Gray.

  • Apparently the Yankees had the choice of either Gleyber Torres or Eloy Jimenez in the Chapman deal, and they chose Torres.

  • Chapman shouldn't be reserved anymore on 40 man.

  • Interesting split on Heyward according to ESPN. As a CF, his slash line .292/.363/.375/.738. At RF: .212/.204/.300/.604. 21/72 as a CF, 58/273 as a RF.

    He's also been better when batting 2nd, but he had a nice start in the 6 hole, but has slumped ever since. He was heating up before the All Star break, but is only hitting .108 in the 2nd half.

  • When we played the Reds with Chapman, I always thought of it as an eight-inning game. So now other teams have eight innings to try to get a lead against the Cubs. Should be a challenge, assuming three or four Cubs ever start hitting again.

    I don't really try to get to know and like these players personally. I'm rooting for laundry, for the most part. Exceptions might be when a player makes trouble in the clubhouse or in the dugout. (Zambrano and Bradley come to mind. Also Papelbon.) But I don't think Chapman is one of those jerks.

  • Unfortunately, a pretty good summary. It looks like next year Heyward will be getting yet another batting stance adjustment.

    The recent good news has been Baez. I'm afraid about the next league adjustment on him, though, which is probably right around the corner.

    Bryant I don't worry about too much. Just not seeing the ball well right now. He'll turn it around. Russell's been good with men in scoring position all year and he's 22ish. He'll be fine but next year is likely to be his breakout year.

  • If Travis' back-to-back-to-back walks cost Hendricks the ERA title, that would really suck.

  • This place is a real downer after a loss to the Sox.

  • I expect they will go 5-9 games above .500 the rest of the year. 96-98 wins will win the Division.

    They should have one more 2-3 week hot streak in them.

    However, several players are just "average" for the last month: Zobrist, Ross, Russell, Ceasar. Montero is terrible, plus he cannot throw anyone out. -WAR. Heyward is abysmal at the plate, but a plus in the OF. Still with RISP he has been terrible. KB has not been driving in runs as of late. But Apparently the team is still above average with RISP according to S Sahadev.
