Player of the Month

Ramirez versus DeRosa for Player of the Month

With three days left in August, the Cubs have two legit contenders for player of the month honors in August. The only player of the month winner so far for the best team in baseball has been Geovany Soto's rookie of the month honor in April, although he's certainly a strong contender to win it again in August. His only real competition is the July winner, Ian Stewart who has a slight edge in OPS and both have 20 RBI's in August.

All the NL contenders after the jump...

  • wow.

    a'ite then. i mean, at least they're getting one of the best at a young/durable age even if there's a heavy price to pay for it.

  • i pretty much assumed this would be one of the last kinds of things they'd do...give up a top prospect (probably the best in the system) to get 1/2(ish) year of a reliever followed by multiple years locked in at his market value.

    i wonder if there's other players going back/forth, too.

    i mean, it's not like it's a horrible thing...this is just something that seems out of profile.

  • Suspend him for the rest of the year and get him ready for the Schwarber era?

  • i liked it better when Cubs were really good and likeable.

    will be very curious how and if they address the DV incident.

  • We are coming into the realm of, ""this ain't the old Cubbies...", with the printing money machine coming online. They'll be able to handle it.

  • 15m a year for 65-70 innings...phew.

    i mean, technically he's worth it, but wow...the cubs? a'ite.

  • Heyman is reporting Trees + for Chapman is almost done. Rian Wiatt at BP Wrigleyville reports that the agreement is waiting on Chapman to agree to a 4-year, $60 million extension that is contingent on the trade.

  • Not scratched because of a headache.
    Twitter...

    Source: Cubs prospect Gleyber Torres was in fact scratched due to ongoing trade talks. Destination unknown, but Yankees definitely in play.

  • He also leads the NL in runs scored by 12 runs. But sure, no RBIs for a week, I feel it strong.

    So conflicted

  • Torres a late scratch from the Pelicans game and no word of injury or signs of foul play with the unis. May be a trade a brewing after all?

    Edit: now word he was a late scratch due to a "headache". Hmmm

  • Hopefully Zobrist is regaining his stroke and KB can move back down to third or fourth in the order. Did not realize the zero rbi's in over a week - glad Rizzo and Russell picking up the slack

  • Just had to ask, I guess.

    Haven't had a big comeback win in a long time (at least it seems like a long time). Great feeling!

    Rizzo should hold clinics on 2-strike hitting. Awesome.
