Smokies & I-Cubs get Swept at Riverview

Jared Walsh drilled two RBI singles and scored a run, as the Mobile BayBears (Los Angeles Angels AA affiliate) edged the Tennessee Smokies (Chicago Cubs AA affiliate) 5-4 on Field #5, and Luis Tejada ripped an RBI single, walked twice, and scored a run, helping the Salt Lake Bees (Angels AAA affiliate) slip past the Iowa Cubs (AAA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) 3-2 on Field #6, in Cactus League Minor League doubleheader action Tuesday afternoon at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.  

Bijan Rademacher belted a two-run home run and Victor Caratini hammered two doubles and scored a run for Iowa, and Ian Rice singled, doubled, and scored a run and RHRP Dillon Maples threw two innings of perfect relief (K, 5-3, 6-3, 5-3, 5-3, 4-3) for Tennessee.

Yadi 3/45 Only benefactor of WBC Are they only playing 2-3 mlb games a week?

cubs have returned caleb smith to the yanks (rule 5 pick)

Cubs have sent Weeks and Dominguez to minor league camp. Both are injured.

So what is left to sort out on the 25 man season opening roster? LaStella vs Szczur? Will they surprise us with the last spots (so far, no).

    he -really- needs to cue into this is a cubs broadcast and not a national/neutral broadcast.

    dude...don't get excited about marlins 3-run homers.

    lot of people wanted him when len left.  he's got a long game calling history, but not too much for baseball.  he did host "baseball tonight" for ESPN for a quite a while, so the game isn't a mystery to him.

    i find him a bit boring/dry.  some people like that he has that oldschool "announcer voice" thing going on.

     

  • Dolorous Jon Lester 2 hours 50 min ago (view)

    He's uhhh.. not very good at it. Glad he wasn't the hire for the main role.

    wow...chris myers calling the cubs game for some reason (boog out for the MIA series).

    he is a marquee talent, but he's not been used to call a game as far as i know.

    also, zach davies looks like a kid in pajamas in those dark blue "wrigleyville" uniforms.

    The Cubs have optioned RHP Robert Stock back to AAA Iowa, and recalled LHP Brad Wieck. 

     

  • Arizona Phil 1 day 6 hours ago (view)

    The Cubs have purchased the contract of RHSP Mike Hauschild (ex-TOR) from Lexington (Atlantic League) and he has been asigned to AAA Iowa. 

    The Cubs are clearly beating the bushes of indepenent league baseball. Hauschild is the sixth player acquired by the Cubs from independent league teams in the last month (Jose Almonte, Tyler Ladendorf, Tim Susnara, Matt Warkentin, and Jarod Wright are the other five).

    (c) hendricks gives up at least 60 homers in the regular season

    seriously, though...wisdom has "slowed down" the past 10 days or so, but he still managed a couple homers.  he's got a damn good shot at 20+ even if bote+duffy come back to steal a little time from him.

    This Mets series is going poorly, so... off-topic question. Which of these outcomes do you currently think is more likely in 2021: (a) Javy hits at least 40 homeruns in the regular season, (b) Patrick Wisdom hits at least 20 homeruns in the regular season.

    wow...and he's done for the night.  that's not good...well, for mets fans.

    "right shoulder soreness"

    meanwhile...degrom with 8 Ks through 3 perfect innings.  he's also got a RBI single.

     

  • crunch 2 days 3 hours ago (view)

    and d.smith gets HBP.

    this is high end next level strategy.  you beat degrom by injuring everyone until they have to forfeit the game.  moneyballs.

    ow...villar got nailed in the ear and the back of the head by a throw from lobaton on a stolen base.

    CHARLIE: You are absolutely right.

    Granted there are existing rules prohibiting pitchers from using foreign substances, but you don't change enforcement protocols suddenly in the middle of the season. Pitchers should be given an opportunity to make adjustments during the course of Spring Training before any new enforcement policy is implememted.

    This can and should be addressed in the upcoming CBA negotiations. Not now.

    That was definitely my position prior to this year. But I am starting to buy into the claim that almost all pitchers are using something, even if it is rosin and sunscreen in many cases.
