# Jairo Diaz (see NOTE-2
Yidel Diaz (2023 DSL) 
Miguel Pabon (ACTIVE REHAB)
Adan Sanchez 
NOTE-2: J. Diaz is listed at Baseball Reference as a right-handed hitter and at as a left-handed hitter, but he is actually a switch-hitter

* Yahil Melendez
# Eriandys Ramon (2023 DSL)

Alfonsin Rosario (see NOTE-4
* Anderson Suriel 
NOTE-4: A. Rosario is listed at Baseball Reference and at as having been born in Lexington, SC, with a height & weight of 6'6 210, but he actually was born in the Dominican Republic (his brother is Padres INF Eguy Rosario) and his height / weight is actually 6'0 220 (so he is actually six inches shorter and ten pounds heavier than he is listed!). So he looks more like Kirby Puckett than Dave Winfield. And although he was not born in the U. S., he did attend HS in Lexington, SC.

    cubs get one!  infield popup and m.busch ends up on 2nd.  wind owes cubs fans...need to get that run in to make it more fair.

    cashed in!  tie game!

    assad get d.ross'd after on the corners...102 pitches thrown (104 his season and career high).

  • crunch (view)

    cubs out here giving away chances at outs with the defense...not the first time this year...too many times this year.

    i understand 2 of the 3 miscues (so far in the 5th) were wind-aided, but still...damn...

    big OF shot on the bleachers and judging by what i'm seeing, about 75%+ of those baseball-bat "mugs" of beer seem to be sold to the bleacher fans.

    ryne sandberg posted his latest scans show no cancer.

    that's good.  that said, you gotta wait a few years to see where you're truly at with something like stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer.  if it didn't metastasize to his bones, he's already got an advantage with the latest news...that area of metastasis seems to be one of the worst signs of survival with this particular cancer.

    he will be monitored for the rest of his life until his age/health dictates it's no longer neccessary.

    good news for now.  hopefully he's one of the slightly better than 1/3rd that survive stage 4 prostate cancer after 5 years.  this news is a great start.

    1- NICE!

    2- boo.

    Interesting pre-game news from Craig Counsell:

    • Professor moved to the bullpen, for now
    • Adbert seeking a second opinion on the forearm strain (sounds ominous)

    yeah, pitch framing is another defensive love interest I don't understand.  i mean, it's nice, but it's elevated importance is way overblown (imo) since the data points to a couple calls of a ball/strike a game that's influenced.

    STL's love affair with it involved getting contreras out of the C position for a while last year...which showed no improvement with his C replacements even keeping his bat in the lineup as a DH.  this year it cost STL his great bat for months, if not the whole season, because they moved him closer to the plate to help frame better.

    you know what's undervalued now for catcher?  stolen bases.  the pizza boxes on the field have people running.  both gunning down runners and being able to do so should be a bit more important.  contreras had a good 33% CS rate, but more importantly his arm and ability only had 9 attempts to steal on him in 20 games (6sb 3cs).  i would say this is much more important than gaming 2-ish ball/strike calls your way per game.

    Somewhat OT: I used to be staunchly against robo balls and strikes. I’m growing more and more in favor of it. When I pitched in high school I always tried to extend the outside corner but watching at mlb level, I’m just tired of watching crappy hitting catchers stay in the big leagues too long because they’re good pitch framers. The two Cubs catchers can’t hit, can’t throw, but they’re good pitch framers and the pitchers like them. We sadly are now stuck with DH in both leagues (a travesty), so since we’re going all in on offense, get these worthless bum catchers out of baseball.

    If umpires insist on calling balls and strikes, I think it’s insane some of these guys get to do that. They should have two sets of rotating umpires; base umpires and home plate umpires.

    Sorry for the Mark Prior tag. I'm posting from mobile and it's not letting me remove it. I feel haunted.
