  • RYNO: With one exception, a player on an MLB DL can be traded. The only exception is during the waiver period that begins at 5 PM (Eastern) on July 31st.

    Beginning at 5 PM (Eastern) on July 31st and extending through the last day of the MLB regular season, a player on an MLB 40-man roster or MLB 60-day DL can be traded only after Trade Assignment Waivers have been secured, and a player on a DL cannot be placed on Trade Asignment Waivers until the player is eligible to be reinstated from the DL -AND- the player is healthy enough to play.

  • Weird. I respect Chapman's body of work, but I guess I don't value closers as much as Brennaman. Also, Schwarber can't be traded? For some reason I have it in my head you can't trade a guy on the DL.

  • @thekapman Marty Brennaman on trading Schwarber for Aroldis Chapman: "I would carry Schwarber on my back to NYC if I was getting Aroldis Chapman back."

    Brian Peters @thekapman that is one DUMB mfer you're talking to, Kap.

  • The lineup 6-8 is looking a bit shaky.

  • Yeah, I have fond memories of old #28. He was a good field, no hit CF when he came up with the Mets, but later on in Chicago he had learned how to work the count and then demolish 3-2 fastballs. (Wish Javy Baez had the concept.) I remember, in '69 or '70, someone (maybe Durocher) saying that Hickman and Joe Torre were about the two best righty hitters in the league.

  • Unfortunately, Peralta is indeed an extreme flyball pitcher. Even when he was at his best (2011-14) he surrendered a lot of HR.

    He has had significantly better success versus LH hitters than versus RH hitters, thanks to a plus-splitter. So he will probably be used like a LHRP (even though he is a RHP).

  • Well there is no "You go, we go" without Fowler. The last week has showed how important he is to the Cubs.

    I imagine the Cubs getting back on track once we get some DL players back, but hopefully sooner rather than later.

  • ERIC S: The way it was done (with no immediate corresponding roster move) makes it look disciplinary.
