New day, same story. More on Brett Jackson’s struggles, some of the Cubs’ better prospects, and a Koyie Hill sighting.
Month: August 2012
Boise’s roster was already loaded with prospects, but it blows up even more starting today.
Words won’t do.
Chris Volstad will try to make his third straight decent start. He’s got the right opponent.
The 18-year-old center fielder will get about three weeks at that level before the season ends.
Are the Cubs working hard to trade him this month, or would they rather wait for the offseason? Or would they even rather keep him in 2013?
As for right now, Sveum is absolutely right. But is that really the question?
Should the Cubs be thinking about shutting Samardzija down any time soon? Also: Darwin Barney for Gold Glove. Seriously.
Pat Hughes has been working to preserve the voices of the game for a long time now. It’s something worth checking out. Also, the usual scores and highlights.
Take that, elderly lady with the flu and a limp!
You’re running out of opportunities to play in these – folks are always happy when they do.
It’s Shark Week. And possibly Shark Night.
Don’t worry, though – Raley could be back for his next start.
Wilken is now a Special Assistant, which he’s thrilled about, and the Cubs’ front office continues to overflow with talent.
How excited should we be about the young man’s recent hot stretch, and how concerned should we be about his slow start?
He could start all three games against the Astros. Brooks Raley is learning, Jorge Soler could be AFL’ing, and an inside look at a draft war room.
Whatever the reason, the minor league Cubs are running a lot this year.
Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman are good.
The two items are probably not unrelated.
Still can pull of a split, even if it doesn’t feel like it.
Soriano wants to see Castro continue to develop on the mental side of the game. Travis Wood was awesome yesterday, and Brett Jackson was feeling whiplashy.
If Jorge Soler spent all his money on 25 cent hot dogs …
Travis Wood = good. Everyone else? Eh.
Castillo will rejoin the bullpen, and the Cubs will aim to keep him after the year.
If Travis Wood hadn’t cut his hair off, this could have been a glorious match-up.
Yesterday’s ugly game set Sveum off – well, at least as “off” as he’s been this year. I mean, golly!
