Vote for Pedro (Cubs)


Recommended Posts

Strop's career with the Cubs so far:

8.2 IP 3 H 0.00 ERA 0.58 WHIP 11 K

Just a change of scenery kinda guy? Or will it just take awhile for the NL to figure him out?

Not that I'm upset that he's gone, Feldman has been worth it imo, at least so far.

Jake Arrieta - S - Cubs

Jake Arrieta will be called up to start one of the games during Tuesday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

Arrieta has posted a 4.03 ERA and 25/10 K/BB ratio over 22 1/3 innings at Triple-A Iowa since being acquired from the Orioles. The right-hander said he plans on sticking around with the Cubs for the rest of the season, but it remains to be seen if that will happen.

The game was scoreless into the ninth before the Brewers scored five runs off Pedro Strop. Carlos Gomez's bloop, RBI single to center gave them the lead, before Jeff Bianchi's two-run double made it 3-0. After Strop was lifted, Rickie Weeks hit a two-run double to right that eluded a diving Nate Schierholtz.

    • They don't have the one and done anymore. I believe it's a 3 game series now.
    • Wondering if Norby is the future 1B and Westburg is traded.
    • Juan Gonzalez won a gold glove one year he was basically a DH.  Seeing how much a media darling Ortiz was, I'm surprised he didn't win one.
    • The entire outfield wall moved back!  I support it just to hear opposing teams' sluggers whine. 
    • Years back I remember when a pitcher (Don't remember his name) was told he'd won a GG.  He responded "Really? I don't even think I'm a good fielder."
    • One way to look at it is that we were three runs away from making the playoffs. We lost opening day 2-1 to Tampa and then we lost to them in extra innings on July 27. If we score two more runs on opening day and one more run in the first nine innings of that extra inning loss, we make the playoffs.
    • I'd be very surprised if they acquire an outfielder unless one of Mullins, Santandar or Hays are traded.  With Stowers and McKenna already in the MLB and Cowser knocking down the door, I think getting an outfielder is very low on the priority list for Elias.   I think next year Stowers will be given a shot at first base, and he will be a 1st/OF player.  I would hope the stupid platoon thing that was done to him this year stops as his splits are fairly even historically.  With Mountcastle and Hays slumping often we need someone with a decent bat who can fill in both positions, and Stowers could fill such a role and get some significant playing time as such.  Vavra is a bit more complicated.  We have a need for a good 2nd baseman, but I'm not sure Vavra is the answer there.  Urias and Mateo look to finish out the ss/3rd positions, and then of course there is Westburg waiting in the wings.  With Odor gone I think Vavra gets more playing time at 2nd and around the infield in general.  But I could also see 2nd base being a place where we bring in another vet, but one better with the bat than Odor.
