Cubs Trade Talk

Meet the Mets SPs

Much has been made of the Cubs and Mets as natural trading partners because of the Cubs potential log jam of infielders and the Mets starting pitching. Does a trade make sense? And what might one look like? Thanks to MLB's blackout restrictions, I rarely get to see the Mets, so I went to my go-to guy for all things Mets, James (aka, the Mayor of Bridgeport), and posed some questions to him.

Nobody Knows Nuthin': The Roberts Rumor Mill Churns On

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, appearing Monday night on WGN Sports Central with Dave Kaplan, said he expects the Cubs and Orioles to reach agreement on a trade involving Brian Roberts in "a week to ten days."

  • Ahhh Richard with your 6.00+ ERA as a short reliever...

    You ain't gonna be on no Playoff roster.

  • I'll give this to Richard: he looks the part of a good pitcher, straight out of central casting. It's a shame he struggles with the getting guys out part of the game.

  • Didn't take Richard long. He is an absolute disaster.

  • Thru seven innings the Cubs have more errors than hits and Zobrist has struck out 3 times. And now Richard is pitching.

    These things do not add up to victory

  • Vin Scully sang the seventh-inning stretch. Along with all the great things he is known for, he can sing! He sounded like Willie Nelson out there. And he gave a nice shout-out to Harry. What a class guy.

  • I'm thinking Kazmir did not get the memo he was supposed to pitch like a tomato can tonight. Jeesh

  • yeah, she's not on this game, though.

    they keep talking about things that aren't this game...a lot...rather than calling this game, doing split screen coverage of other games, doing split screen studio banter, and they just finished cutting away from the game totally (no split screen) to cover another game while missing rizzo's K and the first 2 pitches of zobrist's AB.

    ESPN...because screw you, you weren't really tuning in to watch this.

  • Phil, I think I read an earlier take that you don't see much of an ML career for Brooks? I kinda thought when he was acquired it was as depth for this year, but with an eye on the Cahill type swing role next year?

    Then again he did get hit around pretty bad in his big league time last year.

  • Is Jessica Mendoza still announcing for ESPN? She is excellent from what I remember and actually talks knowledgeably about baseball.

  • watching a game on ESPN is one of the worst things a fan of whatever team is on the field can do...this is, once again, turrible.

  • Looks like Bryan Hudson is the new Randy Johnson: his height will always be part of his name.

  • Seriously?  Envious.  Enjoy the game! 

    Working through the evening, so no recappage, but hope people will come cheer on the Cubs in Parachat.
