Cubs Play Triple-Header Ball at Riverview Park

Dan Vogelbach drove-in five runs with a grand slam home run and a bases-loaded walk and Matt Murton doubled, walked twice, and scored two runs, leading the Iowa Cubs (the AAA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) to a 7-3 victory over the Nashville Sounds (Oakland Athletics AAA affiliate) on Field #6, Shawon Dunston Jr clubbed a two-run HR and Billy McKinney and Jacob Rogers singled and doubled, but it wasn't anywhere near enough as the Midland Rockhounds (A's AA affiliate) belted out 14 hits (including three triples, a double, and a home run) en route to a 9-4 victory over the Tennessee Smokies (Cubs AA affiliate) on Field #5, and Gleyber Torres drilled a single and an RBI double, scored a run, and stole two bases, as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs Hi-A affiliate) cruised to an 8-4 victory over the South Bend Cubs (Lo-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) in Minor League Camp game action this afternoon at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.   

The three games were played simultaneously.

As usual, several players were moved up to higher levels just for the day. 

John Arguello from Cubs Den was at the game, and (as usual) he has some great pics & commentary posted over there

AZ Phil, how is it possible to watch three games at once and keep score on all the of them? Amazing!

A Resources tab...Woo hoo! This place has got everything. The new Oldsmobiles are in early this year...Pier 1 Imports... 

WSux getting world wide attention. Supposedly the team almost voted to not play their game on Wednesday to protest. What's next? Probably someone saying that it was disgruntled White Sox players that caused the Trump Chicago rally to be cancelled.
Chris Sale absolutely lit up White Sox prez Kenny Williams over Adam LaRoche situation.

this is turning into a world-class shit show over a 1st baseman who's barely worth his pay...arguably not worth his pay... until this point my major thought on the issue was, "hey, at the least no one will be pissed with the kid because most fans are probably happy to see him not getting 600+PA in 2016."

[ ]

In reply to by crunch

I agree with Williams' position, but this should have been handled in the off-season. Terrible timing. EDIT: On second thought, the timing on this is really inexplicable and inexcusable. Something must have happened to force Kenny's hand. Why else wait until halfway through spring training to tell LaRoche? If not, Kenny Williams just set the bar for terrible people management.

In reply to by billybucks

supposedly a few players came to Kenny and ask if the kid could be there "less". I am assuming new guys came to team this year, not the guys who underachieved last year. Also Williams asked to cut the time to "50%" and not a total ban, which is well in his right.

and other notes: Mike Olt signs a milb contract with Padres Ejax being EJax...Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game against the Marlins after taking a pitch off his right hand. Edwin Jackson plunked Cespedes to lead off the fifth inning.

sweet...ESPN has their gun going for the game. lot of local/fox coverage doesn't bother this early in spring. also, the media-hyped "possible opening day lineup" didn't come to be. they got kawasaki playing 2nd, schwarber playing C making brainfart decisions (checked a runner at 1st while typing this...letting the runner leading off 2nd take 3rd), and soler's in LF.

lou maddon (lulz, i keep calling him lou...all white people look the same) in-game interview...he's hinting heavily towards hammel/schwarber being a "thing" that's going to happen this season. so far schwarb is doing a really cruddy job with catching his slider...lot of clank-and-drop. hopefully he'll get more work on that this spring, even if it's not hammel's slider.

    The Cubs have also won eight of nine starts by Shota Imanaga, including the first seven. 

     

  • Eric S (view)

    Damn. Regression to the mean, or whatever it is, sucks at times. 

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    True. The Cubs have lost Steele's last eight starts going back to last September. Prior to that, the Cubs had won nine consecutive games started by Steele. 

  • Eric S (view)

    According to a Cubs podcaster, the Cubs have lost the last eight games that Steele has started. Haven’t checked it but sounds plausible after last year’s September swoon. Whatever. But certainly not a streak I’d ever associate with Steele. Edwin Jackson, yes. Steele? No. 

    Hope that streak, true or not, ends today.

    h.neris has calmed his game a bit after walking the world in april.

    so far in may... 8ip 7h 3bb 5k

    it's not ideal for a closer, but it's not trash.  he walked 11 guys in 10 innings in april.

    m.leiter has been on another planet all year and crazy in may.  his may 7ip 4h 1bb 13k.

    both guys have only given up 1hr all season.

    assad get d.ross'd after 4.2ip...men on the corners...102 pitches thrown (104 his season and career high).

    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.
