I suppose...I just don't get it though....ridiculous for a pitcher who has never put it together for a whole season, and is approaching 30 already.
He's going to get about $10 mil in arbitration next season, if he doesn't completely fall apart this season. So 5/75 after that. With salaries escalating throughout baseball, that doesn't seem unreasonable to me. I think Samardzija is looking for a lot more though.
Guy on ESPN's chat with Jesse Rogers today asked
"Is there any hops of the Cubs resigning Shark...what's a fair deal, 6 years $85 million?"
Wondering if David Lynch was at the game scouting...
Jake Arrieta very good in his 3rd rehab assignment. 5.2Ip 1r 3h BB 2K 82p 52k
I heard he's going to get one more rehad start. But that may still be up in the air some.
Dropped 3rd strike?
Nice summary. Overall, given the current conditions, I'd still say that in Theo they are in as about a capable a group of hands as they can be. I'm like you. I'm not sure that's enough.
I think he'll clean up his mechanics a bit. I am sure they're working on that. His swing reminds me a bit of a Sammy Sosa sneeze.
KC boxscore, Arias 1.0 IP, 4 K's
Blackburn also had a strong night.
"I'll be more patient (at the plate) when I come back," Baez said.
bwhahahahahaha. oh man. wow. hahaha. phew...wow.
i wonder how much of that back pain is from his hacks... he actually has a good number of swings where his momentum takes his back foot off the ground (and still manages to put the ball over a fence).
Javier Baez rolled his ankle last Friday... "I thought it was broken," Baez said...Baez suffered the injury at Memphis while fielding ground balls during batting practice. "I jumped a little bit to throw the ball and when I landed, it was kind of like a hole or something (there)," Baez said. The 21-year-old said after rolling the ankle, he braced for the worst.
I may not be as Old or Blue as Old & Blue (maybe approaching this)...but I marvel at the Tampa Rays.
They don't spend - except wisely, have an incredible scouting and development machine - and a fucking smart MLB Manager - and when they sucked, they sucked ass for long enough to make their draft choices really count.
However, much of their foundation building came before the latest CBA.
It's hard to get a real gauge on this ownership. They seem committed in many ways, and it's not really sensible to complain about their lack of making an impact in an insane free agent market. The real test is wins and losses for me as a fan. So far, that hasn't gone well at all under this ownership.
setting up for 5 seasons in a row of getting top-tier draft picks (2011-2015 draft classes) along with the recent slew of trading away the roster + signing then trading almost everyone they get on 1-2 year contracts goes a long way in collecting youth.
it'd be hard to not screw that up. the downside is sitting through this many years of trash, though...especially considering the 2010 season preceding all of this was a crap season, too.
2007 and 2008 seem so far away. that was fun...until the LDS.
"O&B is mixing mediocrity with shittiness. "
I'm not mixing them up at all. The Cubs have had both, in abundance. They've never had greatness. Just shittiness, mediocrity, and shitty mediocrity.
When Theo changes that, and I'm at least thinking there's a 50% chance he will, I'll be the first to praise him. He has stuff going against him (see comments on ownership by others) that aren 't going to help him at all.
We shall see. I'm a Cubs fan and their history justifies my skepticism. It has nothing to do with Theo, really.
One thing that is always overlooked when complaining about Cub mediocrity is ownership. Without good ownership, a team will languish. The Cub's ownership history is indicative of the won-loss record posted by Cubs' teams over the past many decades. Mr. Wrigley was not an owner that wanted to spend too much to procure or develop players to win consistently. This was no secret. The Tribune Company was most happy with bottom-dollar profits - Harry Carey being the best acquisition they ever made. Again, this was no secret. The worst owner also was the least tenured, Sam Zell.
