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

Click to see cartoon gif.


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...


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.

Szczur, Alcantara, Rohan, N. Perez and A. Kirk

  • has some interesting stats/graphs on pitch and strike zones and you can dial up individual games/pitchers. I'd love to see some comments from readers who can interpret this better than I can. I thought the Ump was really inconsistent with a very wide zone. Does this info seem to match up with my eyeball perception?

    Here is Lackey/Lester from last night. It seems their box is a bit different than the K-Zone TBS was using.

    Here is Lester's data:

  • AZ Phil: Agree, this must have been a really fun game to watch. There was a lot of base stealing going on. Are the pitchers not holding runners or is the catching still a work in progress?

  • Cuzzi has long been known as having the biggest strike zone among all umpires.

  • AZ Phil, give me a scouting report on Chris Pieters since he has become a 1B/OF.

  • I think it's probably hard to adjust to an ump's zone mid-game, as least for hitters. Pitchers can locate to an ump's zone, but hitters have minimal time to react.

    But, whatever. Umps are going to miss calls. Let's beat up on the non-Lackey starters.

  • Watched a little of Mets-Dodgers.

    Jason deGrom -- oh, my.

  • Cubs 3-4-5 hitters are 0-21 so far in the post-season.

    Let's change that in a big effin' way tomorrow, boys.

  • Considering how players reacted it seemed pretty accurate high and wide (to righties), but not so accurate low and in. I thought the strike zone by the ump was awful, but it was consistent and the Cubs never adjusted.

    Rizzo and Bryant need to have good at bats. They are really looking outclassed in these two games.

  • that game sounds fun as hell.

  • I was just wondering the same thing. I'd rather not see it at all. If it's inaccurate, it's a bad viewer experience. If it's accurate, it shows some shitty calling by the umpire.

  • TBS' K Zone seems to be more harsh than the others.

    I wonder if MLB will ask the networks to stop using them. They just make the umps, and the game, look bad, and it only pisses off the fans.

  • ...joe.

  • "Strop vs. Cardinals." Seen the movie. Hated it.

    Not all that disappointed -- I didn't think they would beat Lackey in Game 1. Need to get the bats going against the guys with less experience -- and they hit Wacha pretty good.

  • Rizzo has been slumping the last couple weeks of the season. Very disappointed it has continued during his penultimate moment of his career to date.

  • Really doesn't matter, but I was surprised to see Lester pulled and Strop pulled in. Should of left Lester in. oy.

  • Sweet merciful fuck, I hate the Cardinals.
