The Cubs have claimed 2B-3B-LF Max Schrock off waivers from the St. Loius Cardinals, and LHRP Rex Brothers has been sent outright to AAA Iowa.
If Brothers doesn't elect free-agency immediately, he will be automatically declared an MLB Rule 55 minor league 6YFA on Sunday at 5 PM Eastern, unless he agrees to sign a 2021 minor league successor contract).

"Jon Lester said in an interview on SiriusXM Friday that he's had conversations with president of baseball operations Theo Epstein "about getting something done, coming back and being a part of the organization." "
ummm...how about no? i mean, thanks for those 3 good seasons in your first 4 years as a cub...but after those last 2...yeah...no.
also, the cubs claimed 2nd/3rd max schrock off waivers from STL (no power, bit of speed, slow to react in the IF even though the glove isn't bad). meh.

Cubs had a prospect named Jose Made (also Dominican) between 2007-2009. I believe his name was pronounced like the verb "made".

I lean two syllables.
He was Dominican-born, so Mah-day would have made sense, but that's a good Q.

PHIL: How is Kevin Made's last name pronounced? Is it mah-day? Or like it's spelled - made? Thanks!

Brewers decline Ryan Braun's option. Any predictions as to where he goes?

KBO (korea) ends their season tomorrow.
a.russell started off hot, but severely cooled off to a .253/.317/.336 slash (not counting today's game). if he comes back to the US (and finds a team that wants to sign him), it should be rather cheap.

my dream of seeing s.castro end his career with 3000+ hits and a WAR in the mid-30s, making HOF voters sweat, came to an end this year with the shortened season followed by the early injury. he came into the year as a just-turned 30 year old (march 24) with 1617 hits.

Jerry Reinsdorf is reasons 1 thru 100 why I could never root for the White Sox and have hated the Bulls since 1999.

Feels like Ricky and Starlin Castro should form a support group. Everytime your rebuilding team is about to turn the corner and you're gone.

76 yr old Tony LaRussa to manage the W/Sox. Reinsdorf decision over objections.
Poor Rick Renteria. History repeats itself, NOPE. This won't end well (except for bring your dog day).

but, but, but we're rounding the corner. The vaccine is warming up in the bullpen. Tucker's missing email package from Rudy is just lost in the mail. There are no pee-pee tapes. Corona, corona, corona. I like beer. ...and the DeutchBank will just forgive billions of MLB owner's debt if they ask nicely. How are the Russian minor leagues looking this year Phil?

There are going to be a lot of high-profile arbitration-eligible non-tenders on December 2nd as well, and there will not be much of a trade market for high-priced players during the off-season, either.

Cards decline Kolten Wong option. It's going to be tough sledding out there.
