Updated through 9/1/14 - 24 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.

I think Theo and Jed will come to a conclusion by the end Spring Training on how likely they think the team is to contend...at one end of the spectrum if they get two TOR pitchers over the winter then they will go the rest of the way "all in" for next year and Bryant is with the Cubs from day one and burns a year of control...if they strike out over the winter and wind up with EJax-Arietta-Hendricks-Turner-Wood as the starting rotation then Bryant goes down long enough to delay his clock.
If he tears up spring training, pretty sure he'll start with the team, if he falters a bit, they'll send him down until needed.
Maybe the $6.7 million signing bonus should have been your first clue it is a business. I try not to begrudge any player trying to maximize their earnings but please don't publicly gripe or feign ignorance about the consequences of trying to earn your extra millions.
No, no, his brother can't hit
and chew gum at the same time...
Screw Bryant- Any Boras client whining about the business of baseball is the height of irony. The Cubs have proved (failed Samardzija extension) that they aren't interested in getting raped by agents looking to fleece the organization. Good. Keep playing hardball.
Old Bourbon Phil Rogers.
Between Phil and Jesse I would pick Fred on baseball reporting.
That's the spirit kid.
Now sign this 10 year club friendly contract or we will try this again spring training 2016.
2B, 1b, then "With Kevin Cron batting, missed catch error by Alex Tomasovich on the pickoff attempt, Taylor Ratliff scores. Steve Nyisztor to 2nd."
So 1-0 Hillsboro through 2 innings. Stinnett struck out 5 of the next 6 batters after the hits and run scored.
Exactly what I meant.
left ankle sprain for Castro, ruled out a break, MRI tomorrow...
Bryant less than thrilled about not being called up...as it should be.
when teams give the cubs 6 outs in an inning they seem to do well with it.
another epic D brewers outing.
I can't speak for Ryno but my interpretation of his post was that he was wondering if Baez would be their only prospect if Hendry was around, and if he thinks that, he's probably right.
Not to be a downer, but I remember C-Patt walking off the field of his own power after a knee injury that ended his 2003 season.
Why are all of your hopes on one guy? The great thing about this team now is that there are a bunch of guys to look forward to.
Yeah. Coach I'm fine - just a flesh wound.
Honey, you can have that baby alone. Can't your sister help out?
