NOTE: Player not eligible for selection if added to MLB 40-man roster by 11/20. Also, Juan Carlos Paniagua signed his first contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks as "Juan Callado" on 5-8-2009 and pitched for the DSL Diamondbacks in the Dominican Summer League in 2009-10, but the contract was "pending" for almost two years and was never officially approved by MLB. The contract was eventually rejected by MLB due to "fraudulent paperwork" and Paniagua (Callado) was suspended for one year and then was declared a free-agent. He signed with the New York Yankees in March 2011 but then was suspended again and that contract was rejected, too, because his birth certificate could not be verified. Paniagua was cleared by MLB in 2012 and he signed with the Cubs on 7-9-2012. Therefore, Paniagua could be eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft for the first time in December 2013, since 2009 was his "first season" on the field and he was 18 on the June 5th immediately preceding the signing of his first contract, or he might not be eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft for the first time until December 2015, if 2012 is considered Paniagua's "first season" for Rule 5 eligibility purposes.

Rob was Crunched (as in no-hitter warnings) by his post. Cubs win 5-4 in 10.
seems to happen sporadically lately and then fixes itself...hasn't quite happened on this one.
No idea honestly...but I'll look into it.
Cubs down 4-0 to Reds and Cueto, would be 7th straight loss.
3rd worst record in the moment, don't see them overtaking Astros or Marlins though.
anytime they can start the sell-off that would be great though.
DeJesus, Schierholtz, Garza, Gregg, Marmol, Soriano...
The whole formatting thing is all messed up in Firefox for me too. Been like that since early last week or so.
Note to Rob: On individual story pages, like this one, everything is fine, the background is (white) and the sidebars are fine, etc. But on the main page, the background is grey and the side bars are WAY down on the page and not aligned correctly (like I have to scroll down past 6-7 stories to finally see the recent comments bar).
Seems like it was quite a throng at 34. Was somebody being scouted?
I also am getting the dark background using Chrome.
I'm getting the dark background also (using Chrome).
Memo to the JedStein: FIX IT!!!
I was going to ask about the dark background, but figured it was just my new laptop.
w.castillo takes his 3rd walk of the year...2nd in his past 2 games. trending!
is TCR main page formatting broken or just me? first it was formatting on the right side bar for a few days, now it's degraded into that + grey background page color in a frame for a few days.
-edit- nevermind...just checked with another browser, pretty sure it's not just me. was just wondering cuz no one's brought it up.
I thought the only real insurance was sold when the dealer is showing an ace.
i don't trust small business insurance.
i only buy insurance from companies who have animated spokesmen/women/animals. this is way too important of a life decision to not be influenced by cartoons.
When you put it that way, it sounds brilliant.
If he's selling insurance it should be URCOX.
Ad- "A meteorite destroys your home, everything is destroyed but you have an insurance company that will hold your hand through this catastrophe ... And in your hand you will find URCox."
I have a couple advertising related questions. One regards this site. Who names their small business insurance company HISCOX? WTH is wrong with people? I guess it's better than HERCOX.
And the other is the Cubs games. I guess I've been away from Chicago too long, but, "The Fifth Third Bank?" What kind of a name is that? But worse is the tagline. "The Curious Bank." I guess it works if you're looking for memorable advertising, but I don't want to do business with a curious bank, to be honest. My bank has plenty of information about me.
