Comments

that's 3 starters no one would guess would be 2022 MLB cubs starters and a 4th that was supposed to be traded mid-season.

bit surprised and pleased that a.sampson hasn't given up 100 or so homers in his 88+ innings.  maybe he can be 2023 alec mills.  speaking of, i hope this team is done with alec mills.  we got sampson, assad, kllian...they can do long + spot start + injury...

i'm ready for the off-season.

s.suzuki's paternity leave extended and he's been put on the restricted list.

he's expected to be back some time within this series with PIT.

wesn Ks 3 on 9 pitches...immaculate inning.

4th in franchise history...latroy hawkins had the last one.

ive integrated my life into the internet rather deeply for someone that doesn't mix internet and "real life" at all.  i like keeping the separation even though i'm deeply involved in both "worlds."

wife has her kindle, i have multiple computers in multiple rooms.  we both spend a lot of time together and on "our devices."

i'm on the internet a lot, but it's not most of what i'm doing with my time.  i puke out thoughts and go do other things.

Hey, it's time to spin the Mark Leiter, Jr. Wheel of Fortune!  Where will the spinner stop?!?

crazy amount of "small ball" being played since the break by the cubs.  a lot of it very recently.

i can't recall the last time i've seen the cubs bunt and hit/run so much.

Pujols #700 !!!!!!

yeah, the big reason he's done it is because of his long contract and the sunk cost...but wow...700.

still no s.suzuki...maybe tomorrow.

nico available off the bench.

also, i know options are sketchy and 2022 is a partial audition for 2023...but i don't wanna see z.mckinstry hitting leadoff, or even a starter option going into 2023...

don mattingly and the marlins have "mutually agreed" to part ways at the end of the season.

i thought he would hang out with the team forever or something.

the whole franmil reyes situation seems to be sorting itself out.

bat has been dead for quite a while.

weird seeing him play RF today.  he did it poorly, as expected, but nothing terrible.

Kyle Schwarber hits 2 HR's today, now at 42. Phils inching ahead of the Brewers in the final wild card slot. WSox eliminated today in a week of epic failure. Kris Bryant goes a whole season as a Rockie without a home field HR. Nagging injuries are no fun.

9 games left in the season, starting tuesday.

3 vs phillies, 6 vs reds (back-to-back, 3 home then 3 on the road).

    Players on the 40 can be recalled and be placed on the MLB Taxi Squad for one day, like for example if a club is unsure if a player might or might not be placed on the IL ("game time decision"). Like maybe Happ, for example. 

    Also, a player on the MLB Taxi Squad must be returned to his optional assignment the next day if he is not officially recalled to the 26-man roster. 

    The player is NOT paid at the MLB split rate and does NOT accrue MLB Service Time while he is on the Taxi Squad. Also, it is not considered to be an official recall / option back if he is not added to the 26-man roster. 

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    Wesneski has not spent 15 days on optional assignment since he was optioned so he cannot be recalled unless he is replacing a player being placed on the IL or other MLB inactive list (Paternity, Bereavement / Family Medical, et al), a player who is traded, or a player who is claimed off waivers.

    excited to see more power in the lineup.

    HOU going with 3 righty starters vs the cubs and their only lefty pen arm is hader.

    unless busch has a mystery injury, we should see busch+mervis working all 3 games.

    More than 50 years ago (I'm old), I was in the audience when my HS choir performed the whole thing. (It was a really elite choir and director.) That was my first exposure to the piece. You're right, Sonicwind75, there is a lot more to it than "O Fortuna," just like there's a lot more to Beethoven's Ninth than the Ode to Joy, etc. Much if it, as you say, is bawdy: "O! O! Totus florio! Iam amori virginali, totus ardeo!" Basically, "I'm really horny for these virgins!" And the guys in the choir adopted the "Skoal"- type greeting from the tavern scene: "Wafna!"

    i would have pause if the cubs had a pitching squeeze.   as it is, they have more guys than they have roster.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Maybe Brewer

    He'd be able to leave the Cubs. He's out of options. That would open up a 40man spot.

    I don't think Jed would do that.

  • crunch (view)

    brewer has done nothing to keep him on the big league roster...imagine that's 1 guy gone.

    yeah, it's only 2 appearances, but they were both unimpressive.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Yeah it is.....sorry......closers don't throw 89mph

    It would be unique for sure.

    But CP can't be HR susceptible

    That's what Alzolay has right now and that's what Kyle has no matter the situation.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Supposedly Happ said on a radio show he's good to go

    I hadn't read that anywhere from the usual accounts, so this could be off.

    If true, Canario goes down.

  • TarzanJoeWallis (view)

    Hmmm. Maybe my idea of transitioning Hendricks into a closer role isn’t so crazy.
