Okay, Peter Gammons tweeted about a Minor League Player. It was Javy Baez, but still. That should say a little something. If we're going to lose 90+ games this year, trade away decent players to get prospects back and there's no pressure to win, let the kid play in Wrigley.

He's not Dave Scott. This front office won't send him to Siberia after hitting .086 in April. Put him at 3rd, Castro at SS, and let's have some fun.

Or, we can follow the plan, let him get used to off-speed stuff, and not have to rush his arbitration clock.

it's that whole "starting his arbitration clock" thing...

he stays in the minors for long enough in 2013 and the cubs get to keep him for another year before exposing him to free agency.

ready or not for the bigs they probably won't start his clock even if an injury opens up a position.

there's not a lot of fun to look forward to in this crew of 25 expected to break with the club...even less to look forward to if garza/s.baker don't return and have a good/great may/june leading up to the trade deadline.

Demp won't be able to mess up this trade deadline.

I don't disagree at all with getting him at bats but I wonder how important the arb stuff is. This sounds like a kid who is going to be locked into a long term contract early in his career. Although given his cockiness he may not go for that.

They'll wait until a/ he's ready. or b/ when he might be ready and adding him might make them a playoff team.

Neither case is this year. Save the 40 Man slot for someone else.

deleted double post..

miguel tejada still "got it"...

"He's not Dave Scott. "

Dave Scott was probably better than Gary Scott.

  • They've mentioned Henry Rodriguez (2013), Chris Carpenter, and Andrew Cashner as Cubs who have gone 100+. They said Rodriguez was tops at 100.8. Who knows before 2008?

  • Regarding Heyward--

    He'll play regardless of what he does, just like Soriano played for seven years before they finally ditched him.

    What can they do? All I can think of is they can keep hiring and firing hitting coaches until they find one who can get him to stop hitting balls with the handle of the bat.

    (All those broken bats added to his paycheck is just a bit much.)

  • Lester will probably be all right.

    I think Arrieta might have added too much muscle preparing for that butt-naked ESPN photo shoot. Pitchers are supposed to be loose, not muscled up.

    Seriously.

  • I have basically written off Heyward for this year -- if you are working on major swing changes in late July, you are going to struggle. Hopefully, he can be more productive at the plate next year. It will be interesting to see what they do with him if the Cardinals keep winning and close the gap. Heyward is dead last in the NL in slugging and in the bottom 5 in OPS -- yet still has a positive WAR. Hunh.

  • Has anybody in a Cub uniform ever thrown a ball 103 before?

    VirginiaPhil 52 min 9 sec ago view
  • He certainly looks better, no doubt, and is a different player than what we saw when he first came up. Full credit to him for changing his approach and saving his career.

    But he has zero walks in 35AB since the break, and 10 in 251 AB all year. He does seem to be able to hit some pitches out of the zone, but, a guy with his pop should be drawing more walks. However, it's easy to forget he is still only 23, and probably trying to make an impact to prove he should be an everyday player.

  • The usual suspects, Molina and Wong. Gyorko drew a walk with two outs, none on. I recall us (particularly Szczur and Bryant) swinging at everything Familia threw.

    VirginiaPhil 1 hour 2 min ago view
  • Yup. Thanks Q

  • I for one hope that Sosa comes back soon.

    Rob Richardson 1 hour 35 min ago view
  • O/B interesting you should mention that. Google ESPN Science Aroldis Chapman and you'll be treated to how his mechanics and delivery are possibly historic. It's the 120% of his body stretch plus the torque. They compare him to the Unit and NRyan.

  • Amazing how much lower the production gets when Bryant runs into a mini-cold streak. He doesn't stay cold for long. If just one of Zobrist or, gulp, Heyward, gets hot, they oughta have one more really nice winning streak in them. Having a closer that you have absolute confidence in can't hurt.

  • I hope they hold onto Jimenez. Outfield depth is questionable, especially with McKinney, who struggled this year but still, gone.

    Old and Blue 3 hours 9 min ago view
  • You don't think he's improved? He looks completely different out there than he did when he first came up. The last I checked his K rate was in the low 20% range - 22-23 or so. When he came up it was 40%+.

    To me, what is scary about him if I'm the other guy is that he IS learning the strike zone. This guy could easily be the MVP someday.

    Old and Blue 3 hours 10 min ago view
  • So, playing .500 for the rest of the year puts them at 91 wins. You would think there is enough talent to do a little better than that, right?

    The E-Man 3 hours 29 min ago view
  • First team to 60 wins! Onward to 70, 80, 90 and 100!
