Pirates @ Cubs - Cole vs. Hendricks; Game 20 Thread

Same scenario as last night, a Cubs win and a Cardinals loss and the Cubs are in first place.

Addison Russell gets a day off versus Gerrit Cole, otherwise pretty much the same cast of characters that we've been use to so far this season. On the injury front, Tommy La Stella has yet to pick up a bat, Neil Ramirez has thrown a little, but not off a mound yet while Justin Grimm has thrown a few pen sessions and is close to getting into some minor league games. Tsuyoshi Wada was spotted at Wrigley throwing for Chris Bosio as well.

You may recall the tampering charges that the Rays desperately wanted the Cubs to be found guilty of so they could receive some compensation. Well, they won't, MLB finally concluded their investigation and found the Cubs not guilty...other than being guilty of being awesome enough to get Joe Maddon.

I moved the game chat to it's own page, you can find the link in the menu bar above. I recommend clicking the upper right arrow and popping it out on its own window as it seems to not play nicely when embedded while scrolling.




Maddon is pretty creative. I wonder if he'll have Russell pinch hit for Herrera when Herrera comes up the first time.

Damn, Salazar nailed Escobar in the head with a pitch, at least it got all helmet.

Ventura pitching for Royals too, haven't heard about any retaliation yet, but I'm sure it's coming.

Well I think it goes without saying, but no way we lose that one if Addison Russell starts at second base. Thanks Obama.

    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

    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.
