TCR West Coast Get Together

One more time....

The Cubs make their lone trip of the season to Dodger Stadium next week and I was wondering who might be up for a little venture to Chavez Ravine for the Monday night game, April 17th; 7:10pm PST? The tentative pitching matchup is Greg Maddux versus Brett Tomko. Enjoy a little baseball, beverage and world famous "Dodger Dogs", (apparently world famous for their sucktitude). Email me if you're interested, we'll figure out the ticket situation once we know how many people are going. Those who think it's a good idea to leave before the 9th inning need not apply....

What no one wants to talk about Derrek Lee's new 5 year $65 million deal?

is it official? if there's a link, I'll put up a post.

Rob...I will let you know soon for sure, but I would love to be there!

actually true dodger die-hards arrive middle of the 3rd and leave after the 7th inning stretch.

thanks Mike C., be up in a bit...

What'd I say the other day in parachat?

----
5 years - $65 mil.
No Trade Clause

When manny was dooing his (as Mike calls it) nanny nanny boo-boo that Hendry is "dropping the ball" on not signing Lee.

i want all the people walking around humming the "aramis will be mvp" or "aramis will be a candidate for mvp" tune to do me a favor and shut the hell up please, unless you collectively want to be the direct reason his femur snaps in half this year, thank you.

i love the guy, but hey, theres a slight chance all your UNFOUNDED PRAISE (whats this all friggin based on anyway? the whole "he's that magical age" bullshit?) is getting to him via his cousin or agent or cleaning lady if he isnt reading it himself and hes feeling unnecessary pressure?

and dont ask me why, but i see aram becoming like manny someday. no real reasoning (kind of like all the mvp year talk) but i just got a feeling. as opposed to carlos who is just plain eccentric, i can see aram unexplainedly pulling out a bologna sandwich at 3rd one day and looking confused when the ump confiscates it. call me crazy, but i think he'll hit like manny (great hitter year-in year-out but not the mvp) and act like him too (draw a face on his glove which he talks to between outs).

the praise for Aramis comes from the fact that he hits for good power and strikes out a very relatively small amount for that power. It's the mark of the true great hitters....

His defense isn't very good though, so I doubt he'd ever win the MVP, but who knows. Put up enough offense and the defense will be forgotten.

Gotta beat the traffic...gotta beat the traffic...

Big John Stud:
"When manny was dooing his (as Mike calls it) nanny nanny boo-boo that Hendry is "dropping the ball" on not signing Lee."

Funny, if I call someone out like this I get blasted, but classless BIG JOHN STUD does and nothing said...CAN YOU SAY DOUBLE STANDARD!!!

Oh yeah, good job hendry, now go reup with Baker and then things will be all good.

Rob G: If you plan to go to Petco on May 7, I'll be there!

Haven't decided if I'm going to Petco, a little strapped for funds this year, but if I do, I'll put out another feeler to see if anyone else is interested. Chances are you'll have to entertain my twin daughters though....

LOL I'm guessing they're probably not 18.

[i]"Funny, if I call someone out like this I get blasted, but classless BIG JOHN STUD does and nothing said...CAN YOU SAY DOUBLE STANDARD!!!"[/i]

I apologize to the moderators for this, but I'm going to be extremely blunt and a bit long winded.

Manny, at some point, you just gotta grow up...

You just have to get over your victim mentality and the need to prove yourself right over and over again.

Manny, I'm sure you are a wonderful person off this site....but I speak for myself when I say I'm absolutely exhausted of your act. I can deal with it on threads...I just ignore it (well, not now)...but on chats I am burnt out, and I get the sense many others are too. It's really like dealing with the 10 year old tattle tale at school who always is running to the teacher to tell who is picking on him.

It is really time you start thinking about someone else besides yourself here. Your need to point out and engage every little comment made about you, and try to tell the moderators how to do their job, and try to tell others who they should cold and who they shouldn't is truly nothing more than selfishness.

It's the #1 thing I learned in grammar school...the more I responded to the teasers and the bully's the more they picked on me.

You had a lot of people come get your back 2 years ago in here...including me. But after watching you make posts like I just quoted literrally 50 times or so...you completely and totally lost me.

We aren't out to get you Manny...but when you make it all more difficult for the rest of us to converse here...you are going hear it from people. This site isn't about you, the moderators aren't here for the sole purpose of protecting you. and it certainly isn't about me either. It's about all of us...it's about the community. And calling out every little comment and asking for moderators to play the role of a 3rd grade teacher, brings the whole board down.

Keep up your "IN DUSTY WE TRUSTY" if you wish...that's part of your persona...but posts like this here...need to end, immediately.

I'm not a super regular here who tosses things around with you often...so I'm hoping this may actually serve to shake you a little...and if it doesn't...oh well. I won't bother calling things like this out again.

Oh yeah, good job hendry, now go reup with Baker and then things will be all good.

Wait a sec, Manny, you want Baker extended before the Cubs make the playoffs? What happened to your wait-and-see approach? Are your true colors shining forth?

Manny, in all seriousness (unlike my previous post), listen to Blockhead. I couldn't have said it better myself. I hope you read it even if you don't respond.

Rob...I can't make it. I have to pick my wife up at the airport that night. :(

Tell her to take a cab.....

Come on the Cubs are in town once a year....

just kidding....we'll have a drink for you.

I saw a game at Chavez a few years ago when in town. Houston was in town and Jose Lima was pitching. It was good seeing Houston get beat. Great place to watch a game. Hot dogs were nothing special though, but maybe I wasn't drunk enough.

Me Trusty in Dusty too. Im going to order me some of those tea tree toothpicks today.

Dusty isnt so bad. He is just misunderstood.

Good news about Wood's progress, although I am confused by Kiley's math (he says that Wood in on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment in 10-12 days, then goes on to say that Wood may rejoin the Cubs in the closing days of April).

http://www.suntimes.com/output/cubs/cst-spt-k...

Hopefully he'll be back on the 30th. I have tix to that game.

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT EAT THE HOT DOGS AT DODGER STADIUM. PLEASE TRUST ME ON THIS ;)

THere used to be a place in Irvine called "Chicago Chicago Pizza" that was owned by a guy from Arlington Heights. He had fantastic deep dish and stuffed pizza, Vienna Beef hotdogs and beef sandwiches, and the Cubs, Sox, Bears and Hawks on tv all the time. And Old Style on tap. Great place.

Check it out.

Nice site!

    Chris Sale was scratched from tonight's scheduled start due to a clubhouse incident before the game

    ...wow

    he was sent home by the team, too. the wsox released a press statement and everything. they stated it was non-physical in nature.

    Rob Richardson 55 min 40 sec ago view
  • At the start of the season the book was that he was trying to pitch to more contact so he could stay in the game longer and it seems to be working so far. Contact against is 77.5% this year and it was 70.2% the year before. He averaged 6.7 IP/game last year and so far it's 7 IP/game. His actual pitches per game are only down to 106.1/game from 107.2/game last year but if he's able to go a bit farther into games without throwing more pitches and without giving up more runs that is a good thing.

  • sale's skills and insane value makes it almost too hard to have a market for the guy...he's got 3/38m owed to him over 3 seasons (2 team options). he could easily pull in 30m/yr if he was on the market as a FA.

    he's throwing a bit differently this season, especially with more sliders and less changeups like earlier in his career, but all his stuff still looks great even if the HRs are a little elevated and the Ks are down.

  • Torres, Happ, McKinney, Jimenez, and Candelario for Sale. Deal or no deal?

    "The White Sox are reportedly asking for “five top prospects” for Chris Sale, FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman reports."

    John Beasley 4 hours 7 min ago view
  • Unless he develops 30+ HR power and keeps his walk rate close to his K rate at the MLB level, he's not going to turn into Prince Fielder. And even if he does turn into Prince Fielder, he's gonna have a short prime. His very limited athleticism is likely to also detract some value from his ability to reach base--I don't buy making an out as being preferable to base clogging, but you'd certainly prefer just about any base runner other than Vogelbach, David Ortiz, etc.

    Charlie 4 hours 38 min ago view
  • seeing as arod has played a total of 27.1 innings of D at 1st/3rd and somehow managed a -0.5 dWAR with his 1 error at 1st and an overall positive total zone rating...he might end up even more in the shitter via the characteristics/flaws/whatever of how some sites determine various WAR values. dWAR doesn't directly lead to a WAR value, but the 2 main entities pushing the most popular variations of WAR sometimes lead to some interesting discrepancies in value.

    crunch 4 hours 53 min ago view
  • I have a lot of faith in Baez that he's going to turn into a more consistent, solid player. It looks like it took him about a half season or so of futility at the plate to figure out he was not talented enough to get away with the crazy approach he had. I think his running game will eventually have a more measured aggression.

  • I hope the D and bullpen show up. Cubs haven't had much luck against Davies, and he's been going well lately. A little uncomfortable with the Cards only 6.5 back--feels like they're right on our tails compared to the 11 game lead I've grown accustomed to.

  • In a year or two, a lot of fans are going to point at trading him as a mistake. He'll probably be slashing something like 280/400/480 for Seattle at the time. Of course, by WAR, he'll still be worth less than 3, since we're talking zero defensive value.

  • vogelbomb debut for tacoma (AAA SEA)... 3-3, 1bb, 1 HR, 1 double...DH'd.

    while he mostly played 1st considerably more than DH for AAA CHC, DJ Peterson is probably going to see most of the time at 1st for AAA SEA.

  • Carl Jr.! Very nice!

    Baez with another "WTF?" play trying a delayed steal with a runner on 3rd and one out.. Remarkable talent, needs to make better decisions.
