GBTS SuburbanKid mb21 I think they use show the Constructicon stomping on Wrigley Field in the ACB masthead as this blog goes quietly into the ether and OVBlog rises from the ashes...

GBTS SuburbanKid mb21 I am definitely looking forward to the destruction of the internet at the hands of the Obstructed View Constructicon.
SuburbanKid Faget point to you for old times' sake.
Damn you, phantom LiveFyre box!!!!
[quote name="Mercurial Outfielder"]I guess. But we're getting a different story every day now re: what the plan was for Silva/the 5th SP spot. Getting rid of Silva is good, but the manner in which it is occurring is too hamfisted for me to take it as an encouraging sign.[/quote]
The prevailing quasi-conspiracy theory is that the Cubs were hoping for some kind of taker (anybody, please!) would take Silva off their hands before cutting him anyway. So this seems to be in line with the Rosenthal Tweet. I guess they'd get the league minimum in salary relief anyway if someone bothers to put Silva on their roster.

This report made me shed tears of joy that the Cubs might actually do something right.
It's so weird being able to comment on two systems at the same time. I've broke 4-D.

Something's amiss in that table...some of the walk totals seem to be swapped with the strikeout totals. I think Marshall has a pretty good K/BB rate and the average of all those projections suggest he's around K/BB of 1.0 which I don't think is correct.
bubblesdachimp mb21 Although I think he might actually flip Soto and Soriano so Soto bats 6th. Who knows.

bubblesdachimp mb21 Well, Soto's probably slated for the #7 spot because they want speed at the top of the lineup, so it's not like Quade learned that much in his time at Oakland...
bubblesdachimp mb21 I think Colvin won the spot outright last year. He just hit really well.
I think the point was to have Castillo get regular playing time in Iowa instead of rotting on the bench like Koyie should.
Beef Castle ---> yard
Aisle424 Lukas_ mb21 Maybe they should ask Reed Johnson where they should eat.

What do you think is more doable...Cubs World Series this year or the Illini winning the National Championship?? I won't hold my breath on either....

I don't like the odds on either. I'll pick the Cubs winning the World Series."
GBTS berselius Manni Stats I am shamed.
berselius Manni Stats Shit. Isn't that almost what Fuld said after he went to Tampa?
