7/15 Minor matters

Sunday’s games

Albuquerque scored four runs in the top of the 18th to beat Iowa 5-1 on Sunday. The 5 1/2 hour game featured 17 pitches as the I-Cubs tied a franchise record for most innings played, dating to Aug. 1, 1999, at Tacoma. Jake Arrieta started, and gave up one run on three hits over six innings while striking out nine. Jeffry Antigua threw six scoreless innings of relief. It’s the Triple-A All-Star break, so no game Monday.

Tennessee’s game at Jackson was cancelled because of rain. The Smokies reached the All-Star break with a 16-8 second-half record and 3 1/2 game lead.

Chadd Krist homered for the second straight game in Daytona’s 6-2 win over Jupiter. Elliot Soto had two hits and one RBIs.

Scott Baker gave up four runs on six hits over three innings in Kane County’s 5-2 loss to West Michigan. It was Baker’s first rehab start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2012. Gioskar Amaya had three hits, including a double.

Rob Zastryzny threw two scoreless innings in Boise’s 3-0 win over Vancouver. The lefty combined with four pitchers on the shutout. Jacob Rogers had two hits and one RBIs and Daniel Lockhart had three hits and two RBIs.

Xavier Batista and Erick Castillo each homered in Mesa’s 6-4 win over the Atheltics.


I’m excited for Arrieta to join the big league club in the near future. Hopefully this change of scenery is just what he needs to harness all that talent he has

Several Hot Trade Rumors…..

Braves seeking a Russell trade…..

and a third team might be in the mix with a Garza trade…..Theo is looking for all prospects in return …which makes you think this Garza trade has another major Cub player with it……If Olt is in the trade, then he would be shipped to another team for pitching,

and one other bit….Rangers SS Profar would go to the Cubs in a Samardzija trade.

Nave not seen any of that Cubs Talk. Your talking Profar, where does that leave Castro or Barney? Is there any substance to these rumors or speculation?

Yeah, I wonder about that too about Castro….but maybe Castro goes to second…..Barney is a minor matter….trade bait for pitching maybe…….but I was hoping for top notch pitching in return from a Samardzija trade……..these rumors coming out of texas rangers web talk sites.

Just not finding it.

Barney sucks… not going to cut it

Texas Rangers sending Olt, Perez, Profar plus other prospects to Cubs for Garza, Baez, Schierholtz according to Texas radio reports and from Dave Nightengale…

No just no…

Depending on who the other prospects are, substitute Castro for Baez. Put Profar at SS, Olt at 3B, as I said depends on who else, then maybe.

Cubs would be crazy to trade Baez in my opinion. Maybe they know something about him that I dont, but that kid looks great.
