This, my friends, is very good news.
Month: June 2012
You get another shot to play a game, beat me, and win money. For free. It’s more fun each time.
The decision is expected today. But when? We don’t know. Which team? We don’t know. How much money? We don’t know.
After a couple rough outings, Samardzija is back to getting some instruction from pitching coach Chris Bosio.
The young kids who haven’t quite yet made it to the States will be worth following this year.
What is this mysterious substance that you call a win … ?
Yet another salvage mission for the Cubs, who’ve lost four in a row.
Soler’s agents are calling around trying to squeeze a few more dollars out of this thing.
The team is now on pace to lose 110 games, but could it get even worse?
Of the Cubs’ farm teams, Peoria is easily the hottest. Also, they did that candy drop thing a while back. Remember that?
I don’t want to omit Alfonso Soriano’s homer from discussing, but there aren’t words today…
All right, Mr. Samardzija. Do your worst.
Soler’s agents want a little more green, I’m sure. And the Dodgers might be able to offer up the most.
Although they keep hitting in AAA, there are no plans for a call-up right now. Alfonso Soriano is destroying the ball, Draft signings are trickling in, and Marlon Byrd is about to be dumped.
The top two “upside” pitchers in the system are easy to identify. But who’s the third?
Shawn Camp is an excellent reliever. He is not a closer.
A Friday night spent at Target Field would probably be a bit more fun than *watching* a Friday night at Target Field, but it’s something.
A presumed bidder for Soler did not bid, but another big-time player probably did. Also: Soler may not be in the DR anymore. He might be in Haiti.
That’s great about Castillo, but the Cubs really need to get Soto back.
At least he will be this weekend. Rudy Jaramillo is bummin’, the Cubs did some good Draftin’, and AJ Pierzynski almost did some Cubbin’.
Some of the top Draft picks have already signed. How will that impact the Cubs’ negotiations with Albert Almora?
Dude. Aoki? Twice? For reals?
Matt Garza could really use a dominant start.
Dempster wants to do what’s best for the Cubs’ organization.
Everything you ever wanted to know about the Jorge Soler saga, or everything you forgot over the last eight(!) months.
According to Jed Hoyer, Sveum wasn’t pushed to change course, and say he couldn’t bench Castro.
