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.

  • RIP Arnie. We could use a lot more like you -- a man who succeeded and failed on his own terms, a true original, and, finally, a remarkable example of graciousness towards others.

  • Cubs finish 33 over at home. I was, personally, one game over at 3-2, which was one of my better years in a while.

    I do hope that's the last time we see the Cardinals this year. A lot of power, which is dangerous, particularly in a short series, and they have really shut down KB all year.

    Oh, and Jon Lester? Damn!

  • as a fan, he only "owes" us the game on the field and not getting in the way of others on his team being ready to play (imo).

    it's exponentially worse to his family and friends, but this dude most likely had 15+ years of play left and even though he just turned 24 a couple months ago he had already established himself as a top guy in the game.

  • I know what you're trying to say, Charlie, that none of us feels what his loved ones must be feeling.

    On the other hand, what makes a death like this tragic is precisely the loss, based on Fernandez's youth and brilliance, to the baseball world.

    So, for example, we can say that Princess Diana's death meant more, in aggregate, to millions of admirers who didn't know her personally than to her loved ones.

  • boston pitching snags a couple of mlb team records...

    "Over nine innings of play, Boston's staff struck out 11 straight Tampa Bay Rays hitters Sunday, breaking the major-league record for most consecutive strikeouts in a game.

    The previous record was held by former New York Mets right-hander Tom Seaver, who struck out 10 straight hitters in 1970.

    Not only that, but with a strikeout to end the ninth, sending the game into extras, Boston's staff also struck out an MLB-record 21 batters over nine innings."
