He won't be for the Cubs.
Of course there has to be some luck to make the playoffs. Primarily, injuries. Other than that, the best teams for that season are usually in place to win the WS.
All sports involve some luck.
How bout a little twist, Bibbs. If a person votes (-) he must list a player that he would replace him with. That person must be in our farm system.
I read that he's getting sent down right after the game. They may play with 24 guys on Sunday.
With Lake getting sent down so that Straily can pitch today, do you guys think that a call up this weekend for Soler is realistic? I'm starting to think that maybe they're gonna wait until we get...
I saw two AB's of Soler tonight. Both were outs, but they were smoked! Long line drives.
You sound like a tree huggin racist to me.
Thanks! I don't want him anyway.
I'm having a hard time finding stats on Rusney.
Seeing that Cuban baseball is equivalent to A+/AA, we need to really take his numbers with a grain of salt. I don't want to get in to a bidding...
It's awesome that he has the ability to hit for power the other way. I'm a little concerned about his ability to turn and pull on a pitch enough. It doesn't appear that he's going with those...
If I had to guess, I would say he already cleared waivers. Not a lot of teams interested in a bad pitcher under any circumstances, let alone for 13 mil.
We should just release him, eat the money,...
As far as free agent pitcher go, I would rather concentrate on the 2016 crop, then overpay for some aging pitchers. There's some more attractive options next year.
Rick Porcello (my favorite)...
On a gut feeling? Absolutely not! On circumstantial evidence? Yes.
This is the court of opinion. And this is my opinion. For the record, I don't think that your opinion is wrong.
But there are certain players that seem extremely obvious users. At least to me. There are certain teams also that seem to have these players gravitate to.
Don't think for...
No we don't live in a country that abides by, "innocent until proven guilty" outside the courtroom. I the real world, it works different.
Yes, it would be ridiculous to claim everyone used.
You're probably right. After all, unless a player has a positive test under his belt, or a positive test is made public, he has to be clean. Because that's how it works, right?
This is the very first player that came to mind. As soon as he got clean, he became garbage. He lost a ton of weight, a ton of power, and his ability to turn on pitches he used to be able to.
I'm gonna go, under. I predict he gets called up against the Mets this weekend.
Not that he's not awesome, but not only was that pitch a ball, but it would have hit him. Crossed the plate way inside.
If it appeared that he actually needed the extra AB's down there, he should by all means stay down. My feeling is that he doesn't need to be down there anymore. I also feel that he would be our...
I see what you're saying. And for the sake of argument, we'll say he's played 3 seasons of minor league level baseball. That's way more than enough time for a very good player to develop. With his...
Since Cuban baseball is considered on the same level as AA-AAA, I'm quite sure that his PA's are not nearly as big an issue as our other prospects. He's pretty much ready right now.
We just landed a highly touted 23 year old first round pitcher for virtually nothing!
It's almost hard to believe. Now if Bosio can help right the ship for the kid, that would be tremendous.
