Monday Funnies: What's more fun than watching the Bears?

A tad off topic, but whatever. 
Happy Monday!


john baker new PIT minor league farm director...hell of a job upgrade.

cubs need a new "mental skills coach"...they should get nick castellanos to write down a couple dozen random phrases on note cards to replace that hole in the organization.

Good stuff CubbyBlue. I'm a long time Dolphins fan and that basically sums up two decades of Brady/Belichick running that lawn mower over the AFC East ad naseum. 

cubs have sent long time farmhand "cash considerations" to TB to complete the pointless jose martinez trade.

Looks like Jason McLeod or Jared Porter are not rejoining Joe Maddon

MLBTR: The Angels have narrowed their search for a new GM. They’ll choose between Braves assistant GM Perry Minasian and Mariners AGM Justin Hollander, according to Ken Rosenthal and Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic

Other serious candidates included Jason McLeod of the Cubs and Jared Porter of the Diamondbacks. Both were among the finalists recently removed from consideration, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post (Twitter link). Another Arizona exec, Amiel Sawdaye, was also among the finalists, Rosenthal adds.

it's been a loooooong time predicted she would eventually get a chance, and kim ng is finally going to get a chance to GM a team (marlins).

first female and first asian-american GM in MLB history.

so far it seems this is another off-season where the cubs are linked to no one worth mentioning.

on the bright side, there's only 1 more year left on that kimbrel contract.  let's not give $16m a year to a guy that's gonna throw 60-70 innings a year anymore...

add on a heaping helping of "someone please trade for any of our established MLB-ready talent" to the off-season outlook.

chances are rather high we're going into 2021 with a couple less "stars" gone via trade and who knows if any of that loot will be used to obtain a high-end replacement.

still...should be a competitive nice to get well over the top in expectations, though.

theo walks away with 1 year left on his contract...hoyer to be president of baseball operations.

he's supposedly taking a year off, but...well...the mets.

there's a high ranking government official with years of top office managment experience that could use a new job in january.

like tony la russa on the south side, he might have to spend part of the season in jail, though.

    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
