Cubs Bang Out Five Two-Baggers En Route to Victory at Fitch Park

Andrelton Simmons singled twice, walked, and scored a run, Rafael Morel drilled a two-run double and an RBI single, walked, and stole a base, Brayan Altuve laced a double and an RBI single and scored a run, and Moises Ballesteros roped an RBI double, walked, and scored a run, helping the Cubs come from behind to edge the Athletics 8-7 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Tuesday morining on Field #4 at the Lew Wolff Training Complex at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ. 

Darlyn Montero ripped an RBI single and an RBI double and drew a walk for the A's in a losing cause.

    it looks like rich hill may not find a 2024 contract even though he wanted to pitch in 2024.

    being a guy turning 44 during spring training coming off a bad season isn't a good look if you don't have a contract by the time spring games start.

    he's played 19 seasons for 13 teams.  his 337.2ip for the cubs is his 2nd highest for any team (361.1ip for the dodgers).  he's the last man standing still playing out of the 2005 cubs crew.  geo soto last played in 2017.

    SD fans are just trying to concentrate on yuki matsui right now.  the rest was terrible all-around.

    matsui K'd 3 with 12 pitches, 1 of them gavin lux.

    Pads gave up 14 runs using 11 pitchers. 3 pitchers gave up all 14 runs during their ***checks notes*** 0.1 IP. Yep, spring training.

    Only thing missing was a position player pitching.

    boras is holding onto 4 "top level" FAs and ST games have officially begun.  montgomery, snell, chapman, and bellinger.

    there seems to be a bunch of teams not willing to blink, but there also seems to be a slew of teams willing to snap up any of these dudes if the price is right.

    at some point it may pivot to front-loaded deals with very early (and probably multiple) opt-outs.

    it's still "cubs advantage" on bellinger because there's a QO hanging over him and none of the teams with money are in heavy need of a CF or 1st.

    ahhh...spring baseball.  put that shit right in my veins.  

    the dodgers are up 8-0 after 2 innings.  joe musgrove pitched to 4 batters and didn't retire any of them...all 4 scored.

    cubs tomorrow afternoon.

    Here is an interesting thought about Boras's negotiation strategy:   Going into the off-season, Boras knew MLB GMs were not convinced of Bellinger's success enough to offer a long-term and large AVV contract.  His strategy was to convince the one team that experienced Bellinger's success that a market was there to take away a beloved player and make the Cubs bid against themselves.  So far, that has not worked and Boras has to scramble to not be embarrassed by a contract much lower than promised. 

    The question is:   What is a scenario in which Boras and Bellinger look good signing a bad contract?  Until that plays out, I suspect Bellinger could go into the season without being signed.

    it's pretty damn stupid.  don't they realize how much stadium-adjacent real estate they could buy for 77m?

    no one cares about baseball talent on the field, it's all about the baseball experience around the field!

    Could be Boras smoke. Could be a team trying to actually improve and win.

    Chicago radio reports that the Yankees are "going after" Snell and Belli.
    They've already made an offer for Snell.
    They want Bellinger for CF if Judge's foot isn't right and at 1B if Rizzo starts to fall off.
    Verdugo/Stanton in LF
    Bellinger/Judge in CF
    Soto/Stanton in RF
    Rizzo/Bellinger at 1B
    Any of them at DH
    That means one of those five guys isn't in the lineup every game.
    If everyone were healthy, I'd imagine Rizzo would be traded eventually.
    Boras' dream scenario right there !!!

    Pirates extend Mitch Keller for 5 years 77 mil. Wow extending your best pitchers for 5 years? What are they, stupid or something?!
