thanks for your work. it's hard to get this close to what could be the future or at least who to keep an eye on when they move to A/A+/AA.

FWIW, the primary backup to the two core, veteran run-producer/corner infielders in chicago whose combined batting averages wouldn't buy a #4 combo @ mcdonalds right now went 4/5 in des moines yesterday; meanwhile the big league club is well-stocked in case a serial killer of second basemen invades their clubhouse

Chad Tracy went 3-3 off of Edwin Jackson when the Cubs routed him May 2nd, otherwise he was 3-19 on the year with one double, one walk, and one RBI. Starting him over either Lee or Ramirez would accomplish nothing, and I am not losing any sleep about him no longer being on the roster.

Thanks AZ PHIL. Just awesome.

Bruce Miles article in the Daily Southtown: http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=379510&src=152

Have to disagree about Cardidad's sample size. He threw strikes at 95 MPH, that's more of what they were going on than his 1.00 ERA, or whatever it was.

I'm a lot more worried about the way Lee and Aram are hitting than middle relief.

Well, there are at least 5 one-run games in the L column that middle relief could have won - regardless of A-Ram or DLee hitting, O&B.

Pretty interesting analysis from one of Al's stats hounds (Dartmouth Cub Fan) on what makes the "Consistent Contenders" in MLB so consistent: http://www.bleedcubbieblue.com/2010/5/8/1464019/what-differentiates-the-cubs-from

It's actually pretty arbitrary. I didn't investigate his "one guy a year coming off the books" thing, but suspect it's also arbitrary. All of those teams have developed star caliber players from their minor leagues with the exception of the Cubs, and two years ago most of those teams would have been happy to trade places with the Cubs.

There's always next season. Whatev

nothing to lose sleep over; just a very ill-conceived roster...bet the clubhouse could use a good joke-teller/prankster right about now...since the SP's are regressing toward their means or whatever it's called, when might we expect the 1B & 3B to PROgress toward theirs? hey, at least the ivy's off to a good start this year!

hehe... earlier this season ken griffey jr. fell asleep in the clubhouse mid-game. wow. he's lucky he's not already out of a job, batting woes aside. ---- “He was asleep in the clubhouse,” one player said. “He’d gone back about the fifth inning to get a jacket and didn’t come back. I went back in about the seventh inning – and he was in his chair, sound asleep.” The other player, who knows Griffey a little better, tried to rationalize. “He doesn’t sleep well at night, he’s away from his family, he’s comfortable in the clubhouse,” he said. “They could have awakened him …”

lol...the comments under the article pine for lou pin's return, too. Q: who's the best manager in baseball? A: the one your team doesn't currently employ

Griffey fell asleep listening to Milton's problems.

<blockquote>“He doesn’t sleep well at night, he’s away from his family, he’s comfortable in the clubhouse,”</blockquote> Haha, that was a politician-y response.

Funny comment in Yahoo Fantasy article about the White Sox closer troubles: "You just know that Lou Piniella is looking at this mess, wondering why Guillen didn't name Jake Peavy(notes) his closer three weeks ago at the first sign of trouble." http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/blog/roto_arcade/post/Let-s-meet-Sergio-Santos-candidate-to-close-ev?urn=fantasy,239956

heh I had just read that and was about to post it.

Jim Callis's top picks from the last 22 years. Not sure I agree with Mauer even being on the list, I think that's a bit of a hindsight thing. http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/prospects/ask-ba/2010/269940.html

crunch will have a few strong words to Callis about Ben McDonald and where Jim Abbott is on that list :) A-rod is too low... I recall Mauer being a big deal, everyone else was just wrapped up in Prior.

I don't recall him being more hyped than say, Corey Patterson before it was determined he would go #1 due to signability issues. Really good athlete who would play D1 football if he didn't sign. If memory serves, Lou was pushing for the Mariners to take Driefort instead of Rodriguez back then.

BEN MCDONALD!!! Slowly I turned, step by step, inch by inch...

you're missing the boat on the word "hype" and level of interest from those abbott remarks.

<i>If you ranked all the prospects from the last 20 years of drafts, based on the perception of them at the time they were drafted, what would a Top 10 list look like? </i> nonetheless Abbott was drafted in '88 and he started it from '89.

Keith Hernandezzzzzzzzzz http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/ModernTube-Keith-Hernandez-falls-asleep-during-?urn=mlb,239932

<i>2b riot, cf byrd, 1b lee, rf nady, 3b ramy, lf sori, c soto, ss castro, p lilly</i> lefty robertson going for marlins

Good job getting that slug Colvin out of the lineup.

FREE BOBBY SCALES!

<i>Castro says Soriano took him in and let him stay at his condo.</i> http://twitter.com/PWSullivan/status/13748987209 how hung over is Castro today?

Ha!

My first thought was "good joke". After a bit, though, I started thinking "that's no joke". Get him out of that house. Why can't Ted Lilly be so kind? They can play ball then go home and watch the nature channel together, or whatever. And what's with Soriano, anyway? Is he really kind or is he some gay Latin cougar?

haha, nice. Maybe Ted Lilly could explain curling to Castro.

<i>And what's with Soriano, anyway? Is he really kind or is he some gay Latin cougar?</i> That's definitely what my father thinks. But that's primarily based on his ballet moves in LF.

I think we all know what <i>really</i> happened to Felix's Pie.

One wonders, how <i>does</i> one get their testicles twisted? Too far? That one feels too far.

Nope. Just far enough.

well-played.

You guys are wierd. The kid is in a strange city and doesn't speak the language, and you make sarcastic remarks about the guy that goes out of his way to help him.

well honestly, i think this is all about hardcore gay male-on-male sex. that's based on my own fantasies. i think i read something on mlbtraderumors about it, too.

To be fair, I did offer the niceness as an option. But seriously, this is TCR, if there's an opportunity fantasize about man-to-man action, it's gonna be taken. With Chad gone, we've got transfer it over to the players. But you're right, I and we are weird. Not denial there.

You guys are wierd. DavidP is in a strange part of the internet and doesn't speak the language, and you make informative remarks that goes out of the way to help him.

If you are new, David P, it is a sick site in a good kind of way. You have to deal with it.

DavidP -- Trust me, these guys are just kidding around. In a recent poll, fewer than 50% of the commenters on this site indicated a preference for male-on-male sex. You are safe.

lol...poll.

Soto would've delivered him to the game relaxed and hungry.

I wonder if Soriano will hook him up other ways also young kid big city.

ha I think I'll pass on trying to figure out what you are trying to say.

Funny. I my initial response, which I abstained from typing was "I don't know what you just said, but I agree."

S.E.X.

from Rotoworld... <i> <b>John Grabow was given a cortisone shot in his left knee over the weekend.</b> The good news is that a precautionary MRI exam on the knee came back negative. </i> who is that good news for?

The Daytona Cubs?

Every single team imaginable BUT the Cubs?

Picking the worst of testicle injuries that guy for the Canucks, a ruptured testicle sounds alot worse then a twisted one ,not that i would want either.

  • Kershaw uses his 132nd pitch for his 15th K (Marlon Juice Byrd, with the tying run at 2nd), and the Dodgers sweep the Giants. Also, Pirates lose to the Brewers for the 5th straight time. So...with 30 to play, we are 6.5 up on SF (7 in loss column) and 8 up on the Nats, and still in contact (4.5 back) of the Pirates. Man, what a roller coaster the last 2 days -- fantastic stuff.
  • Schlitter still pitching for Iowa? Guess nobody wanted him?
  • JOHN B: Pierce Johnson and Rob Zastryzny were likely 2015 AFL candidates (I mentioned them as likely candidates to get assigned to the AFL in an article about the AFL last month) because they are starting pitchers who missed part of the season due to injuries and they need to accrue more innings.
  • Also - what did Bosio say when we went to talk to Rondon? "OK, Hector, tie game, 9th inning, 2 outs, 2-0 count on the hottest hitter in the game. Let's try the ol' fastball right down the middle and see how that works, hmmm?" Terrible pitch. I've never been a fan of using closers in non-save situations -- they are used to pitching with adrenaline pumping and celebrating the last out of the inning. I realize it was a a swinging bunt and an error that caused the problem, but that may have been the worst pitch I have seen Rondon throw in a long time.
  • Ugly series save a few clutch Homeruns. 2 first inning Homeruns allowed. 2 complete innings (out of 27) with a lead (8th and 9th game 2). 6 Leads/Ties given up top half of the inning after scoring. 9 9th inning unearned runs. Brutal roadtrip coming up while SF plays 22 straight against teams with losing records. Like the Cubs odds, obviously, but long way to go.
  • No more f'n Pajama Parties, Joe! Losing a series at home to the Reds (who have a worse record than the Brewers) in September is not what we are looking for, gentlemen. 3 series losses in a row -- let's get that fixed immediately. Bad error by KB as Crunch describes -- almost like he was surprised the ball was hit to him. I think if he makes that play we win the game.
  • solid smack to him...right through his legs. he wasn't even in motion, totally stationary. no bad bounce, either. it was hit very hard, but also squarely wiffed...not even any glove contact. it happens...not a good time for it to happen with 2 outs, though. that was the inning ender, easy.
  • Can someone tell me about Bryant's error who saw the play? You cannot give the Reds (or most teams) 4 outs. In this case with Joey Votto coming up.
  • un...fucking...believable... tie a game in the bottom 8th, give up 3 runs in the top 9th...why the hell not. awesome.
  • DAT TIE THO.
  • Ugh Hammel...the new Haren. The 3-5 starters have imploded and killed yet another series.
  • Just about to type the same thing.....Augh!
  • 5 times in the last 3 games, Cubs have taken the lead or tied the game in the bottom half, only to give up runs in the top half.
  • <p>I'd like to see stats on opposing pitcher batting average. It's probably not real, but seems like we give up hits all the time to f-ing pitchers.&nbsp;</p>
  • Tony Four Sacks # 27
