Enter Brett Jackson (and Josh Vitters, though Vitters isn’t starting today).
Archive for August, 2012
There’s one of your Jackson/Vitters roster moves.
Holy Smokes! Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters to Be Called Up Today (UPDATE: Baker Dealt, Campana Optioned)
The duo arrive earlier than expected, and to much excitement. Jeff Baker heads to Detroit and Tony Campana heads to Iowa in corresponding moves.
Was it unethical for the Cubs to allow Ryan Dempster to listen in on trade talks? Why did Chris Volstad pitch so well last night? And do the Cubs really want Derek Lowe?
Javier Baez struggled in his High-A debut, but that doesn’t really matter.
At least Chris Volstad was good.
Volstad versus Kershaw? Easy.
The promotion is a bit of a surprise for those who thought Baez might stick in Peoria all year, even though he’s been raking there.
Bits on Albert Almora, Javier Baez, Brooks Raley, Dan Vogelbach, Brett Jackson, Josh Vitters, and more. Also, Matt Garza.
Bus breaks down? Must be the minor leagues.
A run of the mill loss, it seems.
Put your pot of coffee on, it’ll be a late one.
