Quiet day in Cubs-ville, although it does look like the Mets will be calling up their top pitching prospect Noah Syndegaard to pitch on Tuesday vs. the Cubs. The two teams face off next week at Wrigley with newly adorned left field bleachers and Cubs will likely face Colon, Syndegaard, DeGrom and Harvey in the series. No rest for the weary...

As for this weekend and with what looks to be some competitive games next week, be a good time tor remind the Brewers they're not good at baseball.




we rule!! Haha! (Did you see Rizzo hi fiving the fans on way back to dugout?)

Granted I'm not watChing, but seems Pau is doing one of his famous playoff disappearing acts this series?

JD in discussing Rizzo's multiple talents: "That was probably Rizzo dressed up as the Chorizo earlier. Chorizzo."

I wonder if Strop is tipping. He doesn't seem to be fooling anyone. Most of the time they aren't even flinching on the slider and maldanado was out in front of a 95 mph fastball just now.

"Jarrod Parker was removed from Friday's minor league rehab start with an injury to his pitching elbow." damn. he's currently rehabbing from his 2nd TJ surgery. 26 years old.

Reading post game comments, the great Maddonini seems a bit miffed about the effort coming out of the bullpen lately. I wonder what that means. It's not like he can wave one of his magic wands and fix it.

    bellinger wins comeback player of the year.  the AL winner was liam hendricks and his 5ip before he got tommy john...setting himself up for a 2025 shot at the award.

    I hope that Perlaza goes on to have a successful career.  On most Cubs teams prior to the current administration, he would have been one of their more highly ranked prospects.  As far as the others are concerned, one or more may well go on to be much better than expected, but unfortunately there is no way to tell which one at the present time.  You can't keep everyone.

    s.gray signs with the cards...3/75m

    Another one of the nine Cubs post-2023 Rule 9 minor league 6YFA has signed, as RHP Carlos Guzman (acquired from the Tigers for Zack McKinstry at the end of Spring Training) signed a 2024 minor league contract with the Mets. 


    So RHRP Yovanny Cruz (SD), C-INF P. J. Higgins (CIN), and now Carlos Guzman (NYM) have already signed 2024 minor league contracts with new MLB organizations, and OF Yonathan Perlaza is headed for Korea (Hanhwa Eagles).

    ...and back to 3rd for another game.  at this point i'm gonna hang back and when/if he actually plays 1st then i'll find it notable.  i am glad he's playing a good amount of 3rd, though...give the club one more good look at him there.  shrug

    morel played SS last night (no errors)...hit a homer and a double.  he's got 2 of both in 19PA.

    e.escobar was throwing 95-97mph on his fastball in 2023.

    One more thing about Edwin Escobar. Even though he had accrued less than one year of MLB Service Time prior to signing with Nippon Ham in 2017 (he ended up eventually with Yokohama), he will have Article XIX-A rights by virtue of the seven seasons he spent in Japan. So he will be essentially locked on the 40-man roster (or at least he can't be outrighted without his consent), and he will be a FA whenever his contract expires.
