AZ Phil, I see a number of Latin newcomers have arrived in Mesa. What is Daury Torres injury? Do you think Armando Rivero will be leaving Fitch soon?
Thanks

HAGSAG: Armando Rivero isn't ready to throw in games yet, so I don't see him leaving Fitch Park anytime soon.


I don't know what's wrong with Daury Torrez, but he is playing catch and participating in PFP drills and the like, so I doubt that it is anything too serious.


BTW, probably the most-interesting recent-arrival from the Dominican Academy is 24-year old 6'6 230+ RHP Orbandy Rodriguez, who pitched for the DSL Diamondbacks as "Manuel Gil" in 2008-09 (where he was a teammate of Juan Carlos Paniagua--known at the time as "Juan Callado") and was a fairly decent prospect, before suffering a fractured elbow in 2009 and missing the last three seasons. He was released by the D'backs (I believe his contract might have been voided), changed his name to "Orbandy Rodriguez" and his DOB from 3-17-1991 to 9-29-1988 (he suppoedly was 16 when he signed with the D'backs, but he was really 19), and the Cubs signed him after he threw for them at DSL Instructs last November. No matter the name, he is one big dude.

Still no Juan Carlos Paniagua.

Q-MAN: Juan Carlos Paniagua could very well end up pitching for the DSL Cubs this season.

6000 square foot jumbo tron in left field at Wriley.

Suck it, Roofies.

Wscr Cubs "insider"

Cubs dont care if roofies sue because they have to sue Cubs and City. HA!

Well, what was the point of that information? Cities can be sued. It would not be unprecedented for a judge to allow for an injunction to stop building permits, etc. I don't get the gloating...

i think the point might be that it's an expensive and time consuming thing that might cause pause to many potential "victims" looking to take care of it via the courts...dunno if there's any immunity in play, doubt there is.

Ah, I see. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Its just so bizarre for me to understand that Ricketts bought the team knowing that the Rooftops were his true partners for 20 years! Amazing.

I don't have much sympathy for either side here. Rickets tries to act like the victim being held hostage, but he has a very sweet deal with a stadium that has been packed for years despite mediocre play in an industry that gets special treatment (sports in general) compared to most other businesses, so I'm not feeling the capitalist "let the business owner have control over his business" argument. Owning the Cubs is a very cushy deal financially and I doubt that will ever change, especially once TV rights deals get even better. On the other hand, Tooney and the rooftop owners without a doubt have some corruption going on.

  • Phil, what's your thoughts on which position players are going to Eugene and who is staying in AZL?

  • Ahhh...way to bring me down BB.

    Still - a win tomorrow will be an acheivement regardless.

  • Don't mean to spoil your mood, but with tonight's win the are 3-5 on the trip with one to play.

    While I'm bringing the room down -- Richard comes in to pitch the 9th with a 12-1 lead...and can't finish the game. Woof.

  • It is remarkable how my mood has become uplifted with one game against the Cards.

    That is sick.

    But, I have been an addict for a long time.

    A W tomorrow and it will be a .500 road trip.

    Also, to keep the losses in perspective, if the Cubs were to lose 10 games a month - a lot at this current pace - they still end up 102-60. Six months of the ride!

  • So, the Mesa Cubs should be solid this summer in the AZL Rookie League?

    And, I like the, "But did you know" lead in there. Something a little different.

    I can tell really like this group of hitters in AZ right now.

    What pitchers out there, other than Cease, should we be excited about?

    Thanks as always for the info.

  • These are the 2016 Cubs I know and love. Also digging that Cardinals OF (lack of) defense.

  • I'm not sure there was another team in baseball that would flip a Dansby Swanson type of prospect (plus Inciarte, plus Toussaint) for Miller.  That trade was just comically bad from the start, and getting worse...

  • Zobrist just keeps squaring up - and Soler goes yard!

    Eric S 5 hours 13 min ago view
  • Pirates jumping all over Shelby Miller tonight - so glad the Cubs didn't flip a Dansby Swanson type prospect to the Braves for him. Two years of Lackey looking like a good alternative.

  • 3rd inning...soler walked twice in the game...first time since aug 4th last year in the regular season (2 times in the playoffs, amazingly).

  • Good gravy, was that a much-appreciated top of the first.

  • That's a good analogy, bb...  Nice to see tonight's game start with a 104 yard kickoff return TD.

  • Grichuk won the game last night but a decent CF would have caught that drive by Ross. Good Cubbery!
