AZ Phil, I see a number of Latin newcomers have arrived in Mesa. What is Daury Torres injury? Do you think Armando Rivero will be leaving Fitch soon?
Thanks

HAGSAG: Armando Rivero isn't ready to throw in games yet, so I don't see him leaving Fitch Park anytime soon.


I don't know what's wrong with Daury Torrez, but he is playing catch and participating in PFP drills and the like, so I doubt that it is anything too serious.


BTW, probably the most-interesting recent-arrival from the Dominican Academy is 24-year old 6'6 230+ RHP Orbandy Rodriguez, who pitched for the DSL Diamondbacks as "Manuel Gil" in 2008-09 (where he was a teammate of Juan Carlos Paniagua--known at the time as "Juan Callado") and was a fairly decent prospect, before suffering a fractured elbow in 2009 and missing the last three seasons. He was released by the D'backs (I believe his contract might have been voided), changed his name to "Orbandy Rodriguez" and his DOB from 3-17-1991 to 9-29-1988 (he suppoedly was 16 when he signed with the D'backs, but he was really 19), and the Cubs signed him after he threw for them at DSL Instructs last November. No matter the name, he is one big dude.

Still no Juan Carlos Paniagua.

Q-MAN: Juan Carlos Paniagua could very well end up pitching for the DSL Cubs this season.

6000 square foot jumbo tron in left field at Wriley.

Suck it, Roofies.

Wscr Cubs "insider"

Cubs dont care if roofies sue because they have to sue Cubs and City. HA!

Well, what was the point of that information? Cities can be sued. It would not be unprecedented for a judge to allow for an injunction to stop building permits, etc. I don't get the gloating...

i think the point might be that it's an expensive and time consuming thing that might cause pause to many potential "victims" looking to take care of it via the courts...dunno if there's any immunity in play, doubt there is.

Ah, I see. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Its just so bizarre for me to understand that Ricketts bought the team knowing that the Rooftops were his true partners for 20 years! Amazing.

I don't have much sympathy for either side here. Rickets tries to act like the victim being held hostage, but he has a very sweet deal with a stadium that has been packed for years despite mediocre play in an industry that gets special treatment (sports in general) compared to most other businesses, so I'm not feeling the capitalist "let the business owner have control over his business" argument. Owning the Cubs is a very cushy deal financially and I doubt that will ever change, especially once TV rights deals get even better. On the other hand, Tooney and the rooftop owners without a doubt have some corruption going on.

  • The official police report on Chapman:

  • Even from an on-field perspective, Torres is a 19-year-old beating up High-A pitching who also plays a great SS. Even if he never develops a legit MLB power stroke, he's still an obvious 4-tool guy with a very high floor. Sucks to trade away his next 6-8 years for a closer, albeit a great one.

  • "Like the Chapman deal for Cubs from on-field POV, wish I didn't now have to feel lousy following an otherwise likable Cubs team." @jonahkeri

    pretty much sums up my feelings

  • You do have a point. The TheoJed certainly would need to address this in a transparent way. Milton Bradley was no help to the team.

  • FWIW, the Cubs would get a compensation draft pick between the 1st & 2nd rounds (around #35) if they extend a Qualifying Offer to Chapman post-2016 (probably about $17M), Chapman declines, and then he signs with another MLB club before next year's draft.

  • This all assumes Chapman doesn't want to be a free agent and possibly sign a $20MM+/year deal. We all know free agents get overpaid, sometimes dramatically (Hello, JayHey!). Not sure why Chapman would agree to the extension. If i'm is agent, I would tell him I could get I'm a $100M deal as a FA.

  • I'll root for the uniform and imagine it's left-handed Rod Beck or Randy Myers out there I suppose.

  • Amen to this. I guess it's gonna happen and I'm gonna have to suck it up but I really despise domestic abusers with every bone in my body and cannot stand them on any team I root for.

  • I just prefer they don't  acquire players that choke their wives/girlfriends.

    Rob G. 9 hours 29 min ago view
  • So you'd rather go with Blown Save guy, when you can trade a prospect who is blocked for one piece that could get you over the top to the Big Dance? That is pretty old thinking. This is not a move that they cannot recover from if it goes south. But the upside is potentially historic.

  • I'd prefer it not happen too.

  • it's a hell of a blockbuster, but it's for a guy who pitches 1/3rd of a season at an extreme premium considering the guy being traded and if the early extension $$$ rumors are true.

    it's one of those things that is bringing a guy at the top his game, but something is nagging me that this trade piece could have been put to better use.

    a huge part of me is all "hell yeah, top of the line producer"...another part of me is "hmm, that for that?"
