    I remember seeing this as well. It also accommodates Kevin Plawecki, who they supposedly love.
  2. Sticky: His terrific BB rate doesn't add a lot of value? ...

    His terrific BB rate doesn't add a lot of value? It's true that he needs higher than average BABIPs to hit for reasonable averages, which is why it's nice that he has the skillset to continuously...

    I've been a prospectphile for years, but this is unequivocally true. You don't hold off on trading that mentioned package for a guy like Stanton.

    Because Stanton is already a legit MVP candidate at the age of 24?

    Almora is a bit surprising, but not Schwarber. He has already played a ton of games this year; many of them as a catcher. Let him rest up a bit and work on his catching in Instructs.

    Not that I know of. He hasn't been playing everyday lately, but I think I saw him in a box score a couple days ago.

    Lost in the Soler callup, is the news that Gleyber Torres got promoted to Boise for the playoff push. Boise currently has a 2 game lead for the 2nd playoff spot in their division.

    That was always the date that we could start spending again. We technically could have continued to go nuts with IFAs until June 15 of this year. There just weren't any worthwhile IFAs still...

    He is having some issues with the high stuff early on, that's for sure. But the ump boned him in this AB. Should have taken a 4 pitch walk, but he called 2 of them strikes that were a few inches...

    Ewwwww. A huge increase in the number of slutters thrown, followed by an almost 2 mph dip in fastball velocity, is exactly what you don't want to see. Hopefully it was just a blip.

    Not really. I seem to recall him sitting around 91, with a fringy slider during his final year in the organization.
  12. Jacksonville, not Miami.

    Jacksonville, not Miami.
  13. That was terrific.

    That was terrific.

    Until he blows his elbow from throwing so many slutters, yes. He's legit.

    I snooped around and found the Cubs blurbs over at NSBB. They put a freaking J.D. Drew comp on McKinney. Why did they have to go and do that? Now all I am going to dream about is homegrown J.D....

    Anyone have a BP subscription? They have game scouting reports for Schwarber, McKinney and Vogelbach up today, and alas, I have not had a subscription for quite some time now. I'm really interested...

    I had not realized that they were playing such good baseball of late. Last I checked, I think they were 4 games back of even a WC spot. Flash forward a few weeks and they are only 1 game back of...

    That's weird. Dodgers aren't really a team you would expect to give up a better prospect in exchange for saving a small amount of cash (probably a million or less). I'm sure Barney could have been...

    Too legit of a prospect.

    I'm going with brief 2011 draft scare, Onelki Garcia. A LHP who is currently recovering from elbow surgery.

    Let's not forget the fact that they promoted Singleton the SAME DAY it was announced that he signed a long-term extension, thus taking service time out of the equation. Yes, all teams heavily factor...

    Nice to see him performing really well the past few games, after a stretch where he couldn't do anything right at the plate.

    Steele and Sands have both been good in their very limited time down in...

    Just take Brett Jackson off the 40 man and bring him up in September. He's already 26 and is dominating in the minors.

    Yeah, weren't 9 of the 10 spots occupied by Cubs minor leaguers right after the Shark trade? I think only Joey Gallo made it from another team.

    Speaking of Gallo, just imagine the discussions...
