TCR Friday Notes
Let's see, what did I miss over the last week?
Baseball America put out their top 10 Cubs list and it looks a little something like this
- Javier Baez
- Kris Bryant
- C.J. Edwards
- Albert Almora
- Jorge Soler
- Pierce Johnson
- Arismendy Alcantara
- Jeimer Candelario
- Dan Vogelbach
- Arodys Vizcaino
Edwards above Almora is a bit of surprise, but also completely meaningless. Mike Olt is falling faster than a reality star.
The Mesa Solar Sox will play in the AFL Finals this Saturday.
Bill Mueller's name is in the hat for taking over hitting instructor duties from James Rowson.
I'm pretty sure you can replace "upper management" with "Crane Kenney" in this story about being way off base on Joe Girardi's interest in returning to Chicago.
Amongst the offseaon rumors, so far we know Jeff Samardzija is certainly on the block with teams like Arizona and Toronto being mentioned. The DBacks also may have their eye on Nate Schierholtz according to Jon Morosi. Patrick Mooney says don't expect McCann or Saltalamacchia signing with the Cubs, but Kurt Suzuki is on the radar. Ricky Nolasco allegedly has a 4-year offer on the table in the 50M+ range. Adjust your contract expectations accordingly for players like Josh Johnson and so on.
Screw the closer.
wood(4)/grimm/strop/rondon combine for 7ip 0h 0bb 8K
3ip 0h 0bb 3k for t.wood...nice.
wonder if they'll let him go another.
4ip 0h 0bb 4k...and probably done f'real this time. 43 pitches and in line for the win.
And stay off the keyboard too
"cramping in right hamstring" according to the booth.
btw, it was his left hamstring that was injured last year.
she did fine, fwiw.
bombs were bursting in the air...ramparts were watched...all that stuff.
zoobrest kissed her afterwards and got about 20lbs of the 100lbs of makeup she was wearing on him.
i'd settle for him knocking it out the park...not settle, prefer...yeah.
I'm sure she'll knock it out of the park.
Nice article on Willson Contreras in the DesMoines Register
