Not enough and too many.
I think what changed is that Sori actually PERFORMED. He has been a consistently above-average outfielder. Most of the people that were saying TRADE-NOW! TRADE-NOW! were seeing a player, whose value...
I do wonder if Ransom has any trade value whatsoever. He's had a GREAT year at the plate, any team that gets him has to know that the 38 y/o utility guy won't have much value in the future... but for...
My money would be on Navarro going next, with Gregg and an OF gone on deadline day.
I'd thought that we'd get more than a loA reliever for Sori, but then the Yanks paid more on Sori's contract than I'd expected, so I'm conflicted. Glad to be moving forward, though.
I wonder how...
So the Cubs have blown their load on international signings, exceeding their budget (with trades) by more than 15%. I've read that means we can't spend more than 250k on anyone next year, and I read...
Hang loose brah!
Our bats are pushing rope.
Wait, why is Barney leading off? Blaaaaaahhh.
Odds we get no hit tonight? If we talk about it enough, we'll jinx it, right?
That's nasty. Really feel sorry for that guy. I wonder where the mistake was made.

Another reference builder, Steel?

Alamo is a physical high school catcher who has room on his 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame to get even...

Rd 22. Brown, Kevin Bryant U (RI) LF L/R SR 6'00" 195lbs DOB: 10/30/90
Cubs finally get Kevin Brown.
Ah, but what makes McThoyerlkin great is that they just have one shared SUPERbrain. Didn't you hear?
Oh, for sure that if someone was out there cheap, they'd be gone. It's just that we have the 2 biggest pool and while I liked what we did in the first 10 rds, I didn't think we took anyone that'd...
Yes. Edited. I'm dumb.
I think you might be more right about that than you meant...
Is it time to draft a big time High School talent, hoping we can save enough on our early picks to tempt him away from college, or did we already do that with Clifton?
20th Rd Blair, Zak Mercyhurst Col (PA) 2B L/R 5S 5'10" 190lbs DOB: 12/19/89
Haven't seen many birthdays in the 80's in this draft.
All these catchers seem like addressing organizational depth, hopefully one of them pans out, but I know our minors are catcher empty. I mean, 3 college catchers in 9 rounds? Wowzer.
Also, Rd 18- Papaccio, Giuseppe Seton Hall U (NJ) SS R/R SR 6'01" 185lbs DOB: 06/08/91
I think that's fair about Bryant, but you can't underestimate the value of power, and whether he can stick at 3rd or not, you can't doubt his power. I also love his patience. That's been missing in...
Hope some of them hit as starters too. But I wonder if bullpen arms is a market deficiency that Thoyer's decided to target, or if it's just that the Cubs are getting closer, so they decided bullpen...
