Cabezas and Morelli Lead Cubs to Victory at Fitch Park

Yaniel Cabezas had four hits (three doubles and a single), scored three runs, and drove-in two more, Jesus Morelli drove-in four runs with two singles and a home run, and four pitchers combined to strike out 14, as a split squad of EXST Cubs drubbed the EXST Angels 13-5 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action this morning at Fitch Park Field #2 in Mesa.

Prior to the game on Field #2, Angel Guzman and Dustin Fitzgerald faced-off in a two-inning “sim game” on Field #3.

While one squad of EXST Cubs was playing the EXST Angels at Fitch Park, the other squad traveled up the 101 Freeway to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick to play the EXST Rockies. However, I have no information about that game.

In EXST Cubs roster news, RHP Larry Suarez has been promoted to Peoria (Suarez was used as a closer in his last couple of outings at EXST), and OF Ty Wright (sprained ankle) completed his rehab assignment and was assigned to AAA Iowa yesterday as the roster replacement for OF Lou Montanez, who had been called-up from Iowa by the Cubs on Tuesday to replace the injured Marlon Byrd (15-day DL - multiple facial fractures).

Here is the abridged box score from today's game at Fitch Park Field #2 (Cubs players only)

3. Yaniel Cabezas, C: 4-5 (2B, K, 2B, 2B, 1B, 3 R, 2 RBI)
4. Jesus Morelli, LF: 3-5 (F-9, 6-4-3 DP, 1B, 1B, HR, R, 4 RBI)

Former Cubs 1st round pick Ryan Harvey released by Boston after unsuccessful attempt to convert to pitcher. Cubs or media compared him to Dale Murphy right after he was drafted. I remember that at the time and thinking how stupid it is to put even more expectations on a kid than just being a high 1st rounder.

http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/Buster-Posey-should-have-been-protec… today in overreaction theater... "Baseball should be protecting the catcher like football protects the quarterback," McCarver said. "Obviously, you can make a case that a catcher in baseball is not as important as quarterback in football. But I'm not sure about that. There is a dearth of good catching coming into the game." and then former catcher Mike Scioscia pissed all over McCarver's ideas which is awesome. I'm all for banning guys from launching themselves at the catcher if it also comes with catchers not being allowed to block home plate, but can only straddle the plate.

1. Fukudome, RF 2. Barney, 2B 3. Castro, SS 4. Ramirez, 3B 5. Pena, 1B 6. Soriano, LF 7. Campana, CF 8. Hill, C 9. Davis, P VS. 1. Tabata, LF 2. Pearce, 3B 3. McCutchen, CF 4. Walker, 2B 5. Diaz, RF 6. Snyder, C 7. Overbay, 1B 8. Cedeno, SS 9. Correia, P

garza isn't a team. garza cost 6m for a 10-12m pitcher. garza has 3 years of club control. whether you think the trade should have been made or not, he wasn't going to be given away. chris archer, a no-power (but young) SS, and spare parts...all expendable or replaceable in the system aside from the SS that's years away. archer was worth something for all of a few months. while he still has value it looks like he was sold "high" at this point. his walks and lack of being able to go deep doesn't surprise me, but all the hits he's giving up does surprise me a bit. hell, at this point it seems the most useful part to them any time soon might be brandon guyer. also...does anyone know what the cubs forgotten piece, zach rosscup, is up to? he hasn't pitched in over a week.

From Len via Rob Neyer: The three pitchers who have subbed for the injured Randy Wells and Andrew Cashner -- the trio of Casey Coleman, James Russell, and lately Davis -- have combined to go 2-11 with an 8.04 ERA in 16 starts.

...yet another group of people singing the 7th who have no business doing it and don't have the respect for what they're being asked to do (in exchange for pimping their whatever) to actually do it right. end the 7th stretch song, already...or just have the booth do it...or keep all the guests baseball related, at least.

    morel's knee and foot seems to be feeling a bit better.

    iowa gave away the game in the late innings.  davis got a single and double to add to the pile, though.

    may  9th - .135/.306/.216
     

    may 18th - .279/.439/.689

    in 8 games over 9 days he's gone from washup to prospect resurgence.  it would be nice to get that heat from 2021 back.

    unreal.  be crazy to see where this goes in a month or 2....unless it gets too crazy to ignore at the mlb level.

    And another solo shot in the third. He’s not hitting cheapies either. Definitely capturing my attention at this point.

    He is on a serious heater right now

    Brennan Davis two out first inning grand salami for Iowa.

    woo!!!!

    walkoff win!  morel has been involved in at least 4 walk-off wins this year by my count.

    his bWAR is tied for next to last on the team (-0.1)...just saying.

    ha.  the mccutchen AB where he almost homered in the 6th (foul) got me thinking about the mccutchen/furries thing.

    it's a coincidence, but mccutchen does VERY well at the plate when pittsburgh's annual furry convention (Anthrocon) is in town and there's a home game.  all 4 days of the convention will be home games for PIT.

    be on the lookout for mccutchen's twitter account to simply post "Furries" during the week of the convention.

    he's aware of the coincidence and plays into it.

    baseball is weird.  social media is weird.  furries are also weird, but whatever...ya'll do ya'll.

    i love that wrigley is packed, but you can tell a lot of these fans are new(ish) to in-person baseball.

    pop outs that don't even reach the warning track are getting huge fan pops as possible homers.

    that said, it's good there's so much fresh eyes on the field product.  the game needs a constant influx of newer fans.

    i noticed a lot of 20-somethings really getting into baseball during the covid era.  they also really got into baseball cards, but that's another side show in itself.  the baseball card boom died down a bit, but the interest in baseball overall seems to have stuck around.

    "The New York Post’s Joel Sherman reports the Mets offered first baseman Pete Alonso a seven-year, $158 million contract extension last summer."

    22.5m a year.  on one hand, no way his agent would sign that.  on the other hand, the mets obviously see some warning signs long-term...most likey his lack of body conditioning.  he's got a very pre-roids era slugger build.
