I might just go insane, but it will probably be worth it for the entertainment value, alone. Oh, and you’ll get a crap ton of trade deadline coverage, too.
Month: July 2011
With DeVoss in the fold, how about those other 14 picks in the top 15? Jeff Samardzija’s future, Prince Fielder’s jersey, Jim Hendry/Mike Quade/Crane Kenney’s job security, Matt Garza’s trade, and Alfonso Soriano’s secret, illicit desires.
Folks like to do these kind of mid-season gimmicky things, and I am nothing if not a lemming.
But, before you go nuts: he essentially said he’d go anywhere that would offer him a big league managerial job.
Well, more accurately, I help Unholy Cows make funny shirts.
The Brewers have traded for Francisco Rodriguez, Starlin Castro has played his first All-Star Game, the Cubs have signed an undrafted catcher, and one of the Cubs’ draft picks is having Tommy John surgery.
Commissioner Bud Selig and MLBPA Executive Director Michael Weiner discuss the state of MLB labor negotiations, and address some pretty big changes on the way.
If the Cubs put together an All-Star team of their best prospects, what would the team look like? The answer within, and a bit on each of the prospects.
The Red Sox might not be able to land Matt Garza, the Giants and Brewers want Geovany Soto, Reed Johnson has some trade value, the Cubs will talk to Kerry Wood about a trade, and the Cubs will not talk to other teams about a Sean Marshall trade.
Brett Jackson and Ryan Flaherty are on the move, Paul Sullivan takes wacky trades, Ryne Sandberg loves the All-Star Game, and Starlin Castro is ambitious.
The Yankees are almost certainly also interested. If the Cubs are smart, they’ll at least have some discussions about trading Garza.
By “liking” BN on Facebook, you’ll get Cubs rumors pumped right into your Facebook feed as soon as they break. You should do it.
The Yankees and Angels are rumored to be heavily interested in the Chicago Cubs’ third baseman, and the Mariners, Giants, Braves and Diamondbacks might also be calling.
The Cubs won’t let up in the second half, Mike Quade and Ryan Dempster are bros again, Marlon Byrd thinks Zambrano wouldn’t have received such kind treatment, Andrew Cashner will start throwing, and Ryne Sandberg is probably lucky.
The future is bright for the former Villanova football star, and current top 50 baseball prospect.
Family obligations preclude Cubs’ third baseman’s attendance at the Midsummer Classic.
The first half ends as it began: with the Cubs embarrassing themselves against the Pirates.
Or it’s just Ryan Dempster being fiery, Mike Quade being obfuscatory, Jeff Samardzija being a starter, Aramis Ramirez not wanting to be an All-Star, Darwin Barney being clutch, and Matt Szczur being promoted.
Shiny, happy people holding hands.
