Topics I've Started

Cubs/Mariners Part 2

December 17, 2018 - 12:46 PM

Cubs send:

SP Will Smith (AAA-Iowa)


Mariners send:

RP Chris Weatherfo (A-Clinton)


One thing we forgot with our Rule 5 picks last night - their place on the MLB roster sends a few other pitchers to the AAA rotation, which is now overcrowded. Conversely, Kaiser’s AAA rotation is not as crowded. We shed some salary and pick up another player similar to the guy we got from the Reds... little control, but good K numbers last year.

Thanks again Kaiser. SEA to confirm.

Cubs/Reds Trade

December 17, 2018 - 11:42 AM

Cubs send:

RP Pete Levitt (MLB)


Reds send:

RP Rich Beasley (Daytona-High A)


Following the Rule 5 draft and MadBum signing we needed to clear one more 40 man spot. Levitt has long been on our trade block. Beasley is the opposite of a typical Cubs trade target in that his control sucks, but his strikeout numbers were among the best in the Reds system so we will give it a shot.

Thanks Scott - CIN Ari confirm.

Cubs/Mariners

December 16, 2018 - 09:39 PM

Cubs send:

 

SP Jonathan Pettibone (MLB)

 

 

Mariners send:

 

RP Bob Horton (Everett-Low A)

 

 

After adding Madison Bumgarner, the Cubs needed to cut a pitcher. We'd rather continue to roll the dice with our 2017 and 2018 Rule 5 pitchers than employ Pettibone. Thanks for the easy deal, again, Kaiser!

 

SEA to confirm.


Cubs/Mariners Trade

November 10, 2018 - 01:24 PM

Cubs send:

 

SP Scott Alexander (MLB)

C Juan Apodaca (AAA-Iowa)

C Kyle Higashioka (A-South Bend)

C Michael Lane (A-Myrtle Beach)

C Gabriel Lino (AA-Tennessee)

SP Billy Miller (R-Mesa)

 

 

Mariners send:

 

SP Nathan Armstrong (A-Everett)

3B Maximo Gonzalez (R-Peoria)

1B Pedro Lopez (should be promoted to R-Peoria)

 

 

 

Saturday morning boredom at it's best! We think Alexander actually does have a bit of value, as does Armstrong despite his lack of results since starting pro ball. Kaiser needed some catching depth, so we send that his way as well for a few lottery tickets offered by Seattle. 

 

We also threw in a surprise future LOOGY in Billy Miller as a thank you. A little lagniappe for ya, Kaiser.

 

Thanks for the deal, SEA to confirm.


Cubs/Blue Jays

November 02, 2018 - 12:00 AM

Cubs send:

 

2B Jonathan Villar (MLB)

SP Adam Conley (MLB)

 

 

Blue Jays send:

 

1B Culley Davis (R-Bluefield)

SP Patrick Morris (R-Dunedin)

SP Augusto Sanchez (R-Dunedin)

 

 

Cubs are trying to get rid of some of their MLB/AAAA/AAA pieces to make way for young guys on the major league roster. Service time be damned, we are no longer interested in placeholders like Villar and just want to let the kids play. We give up two decent players for 3 rookie ballers. The rebuild continues.

 

Thanks Mitch, Blue Jays to confirm.
