Updated through 8/31/14 - 25 games left for Cubs.
For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick.

He did send Kaz Matsui to the hospital.
Those numbers are insane.
no way the cubs can trade for Hamels this offseason now, Ruben Amaro will want 3 of the big 4 + Arrieta
also Soler now with 5 doubles and 3HR through 5+ games, jesus christ
Honestly he just started pounding it when Happy put him in cleanup spot.
Good news is now we can trade Bryant and Olt!
It kinda bummed me out that they have him the green light on the 3-0 pitch in his first AB. I know there are a lot of reasons to do so - but of course he swings at it and taps out to Aramis.
Jeebuz! What got into Valbuena?
Javy seems to be getting progressively more clueless at the plate -- struck out on an 0-2 pitch in his eyes. HIs baseball IQ is a concern -- if you swing at the first 2 pitches that are not in the strike zone, it is very, very unlikely that the 0-2 pitch will be a strike. Pitchers seem be be almost laughing at him now -- they throw pitches nowhere near the zone on 0-2, and yet he still swings.
This can't be helping his development...time to sit for a bit.
That is just beautiful internet craftsmanship, jacos. Really beautiful.
What did Parker do in Iowa that he doesn't do here? Do those teams in the minors really not hit belt high fastballs in the ninth inning?
So hot he almost sent Soler to the hospital.
iowa scores 11 runs...bryant only goes 1-4 (single)...demote the bum.
j.lake goes 0-4 (1bb), btw.
Turner hanging tough ...
Charlie that excellent joke just went extra innings. Excellent stamina!
i f'n love that movie.
Deadball is also fun.
Swellington. Dang he's hot.
