12/4 Cubs consider Betancourt

One option the Cubs are considering for third base is free agent Yuniesky Betancourt. Former Cubs shortstop Alex Gonzalez now represents Betancourt, and met with Theo Epstein about the infielder. Betancourt, 30, batted .228 in 57 games last season for the Royals, getting limited playing time. He has hit .266 overall in eight seasons. He’s primarily played shortstop with only eight games at third, all last season with the Royals. Betancourt was currently playing for Mexicali in the Mexican Winter League, and batting .261 in 12 games. The Cubs have had scouts watching him. The infielder would be willing to move to third base. Betancourt does have some power, hitting 16 homers in 2010 and 13 in 2011 with the Brewers.

will he blow game 6 like Alex did

He’ll be retired by the time the Cubs get to the “next game six”. But OMG, the consideration of Betancourt for 3B is very disturbing. They would consider yet another weak player rather than
Vitters….the in-house, weak player they already have?? If the Cubs don’t obtain somebody CONSIDERABLY better than a platoon of Valbuena (defense) and Vitters (something to prove) then why bother spend the dough?

i don’t think this is for the ML roster…. this has to be a minor league deal for depth…

Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!?

Isn’t it great to cook meals without additional oil, fats or water and just allowing hot air and moisture to take their toll. They are reusable and come in handy for uses such as carrying a gift or as wrapping paper. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and toss to coat and evenly mix. For a people who have the strength character, nothing in this world is impossible. it is easy to ascertain why this dish is therefore readily on the market on the streets of Bangkok, and why it is so standard with budget acutely aware backpackers.
