    Alcantara being called-up (kind of)

    Cubs to bring up Alcantara for two days to take Barney's place during paternity leave.

    On a semi related note, I bet Barney smashes hot *****es.
    To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.

    To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.

    Won't they have to make room for him on the 40 man or is he already on it?

    Edit Nevermind looks like he already is on the 40 man.

    I'd say Barney if he wasn't having a child and that being the reason Contra is coming up in the first place

    But really, if we were to keep Alcantara up I'd be instantly willing to DFA Ruggiano/Sweeney/Olt/Lake.

    Definitely not Ruggiano. Sweeney or Olt.

    The "clock" might be an argument to keep Alcantara down after these few games, but I rather keep Alcantara up to see what we got going into 2015.

    Is it unethical to trade someone while on paternity leave?

    We're past 2014's clock, yeah. Just making a generalized statement/opinion, given that I've seen some comments here and there about just waiting till 2015.

    Sweeney. Olt's power could still find some value against lefties off the bench.

    They're pretty much equally useless. The only argument that can be made for Olt in my opinion is that nobody else really plays 3B, whereas we have plenty of OF options other than Sweeney.
