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.

  • jose fernandez's number is going to be retired by FLA.

    there's custom jerseys on their way to tonight's game (and hopefully will make it on time). all the marlins are going to wear #16 tonight.

    this still sucks.

  • Lester is going to get one more start, right? It sure would be nice to see him get a shot at 20 wins.

  • Nicely done! I think in my 10-14 games I went .500 or a little over. Strangely, I went to the Cards games they mostly lost (incl Saturday) and the one SF game they lost, plus a couple Brewers games they lost, too. I should have gone to just Reds games. But still - saw mostly very good baseball on the North Side this year. Regardless of what happens come October - the Cubs are positioned for some good times in the next 3-5 years.

  • 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!

  • Yes. Boating accident at 3AM. Very sad, but stupid. Young men do stupid things.

  • 2 out in the 7th, lester at 84 pitches, ross taken out for the standing O.

    it's possible contreras will catch lester for another inning+.

  • What a weird day.  Jose Fernandez and Arnold Palmer, but then Scully and, on a much more modest level, Ross....

  • d.ross gets his 2nd standing O on the night (last home game of the season)...hits HR #10...curtain call. baseball.

  • 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.
