2013 Cubs projections: Anthony Rizzo

A little over a week ago, we started our 2013 Cubs projections series by looking at Welington Castillo. The plan is to just go from catcher to 1st to 2nd and so on. Up today is Anthony Rizzo. For more than half a decade the Cubs got a .385 wOBA out of their 1st baseman. Derrek Lee was traded midseason in 2010, but from 2004 through 2010 he posted a .385 wOBA, put up a couple MVP...

Mesa, Arizona, Cubs Pitchers and Catchers are In You

Cubs pitchers and catchers report today so we can finally get down to talking about some serious baseball stuff like bunting tournaments and if there is any purpose at all for Steve Clevenger. But for now, this is the time on Sprockets when we dance! The post Mesa, Arizona, Cubs Pitchers and Catchers are In You appeared first on Obstructed View.

Cubs annouce signing of Scott Hairston

The deal between Scott Hairston and the Chicago Cubs has been formally announced. Hariston and the Cubs agreed to a two-year deal worth $5 million nearly two weeks ago. Hairston can earn another $1 million in incentives and expects to platoon with Nate Schierholtz in right field. The Cubs outfield hardly seems set in stone and it is reasonable to expect Hairston to accumulate a large...

Carlos Marmol watches his domestic abuse case go to a higher court

Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Marmol is fighting his way through very serious accusations.  A 24-year old woman in the Dominican Republic is claiming that he abused her. The case was upsold to a higher court within the country according to the Chicago Sun Times. Please Click Here To Read This Story. The post Carlos Marmol watches his domestic abuse case go to a higher court appeared...

Cubs’ circus act leaves town for good

The Cubs finalized a deal with newly-acquired outfielder Scott Hairston, who they signed as a free agent last month.   That they got Hairston, who signed a two-year deal, into the fold isn’t necessarily the real story in Chicago. Yes, he hit 20 home runs with the New York Mets last season, and yes, he [...]

Chicago Cubs close deal with Scott Hairston, local guy

News out of Mesa, Arizona today on the first day that pitchers and catchers report. The Chicago Cubs and outfielder Scott Hairston agreed to terms: two-years, $5 million contract. To make room for Hairston on the 40-man roster, outfielder Tony Campana was designated for assignment. The deal was reported last month and is now finalized. Scott Hairston, who can earn an additional ...

Don’t Say Goodbye to Tony Campana Just Yet

Just about every media outlet that matters, including Carrie Muskat, has reported that Tony Campana has been designated for assignment to make room for Scott Hairston.  The Cubs 40-man roster is now full up again, but just replace Campana’s name with Hairston’s.  At this point the Cubs have 10 days to waive, trade or release Campana.  But I think there’s a good chance that...

Buntfest 2013: Front Office Analysis

The Buntfest is returning!  This time, with a twist: This spring, the Cubs will have their second bunting tournament, with a slight tweak. The front office will compete for a spot in the field of 64, and Theo Epstein was expected to square off against GM Jed Hoyer in their first round match. David DeJesus won the tourney last year. There are a number of other staffers in the new...

Scott Hairston, Cubs finalize 2-year contract

Outfielder Scott Hairston and the Chicago Cubs have finalized a two-year contract. The 32-year-old Hairston hit .263 with a career-high 20 homers, 57 RBIs and 25 doubles last year in his second season with the New York Mets. He also has played for Arizona (2004-07), San Diego (2007-09, 2010) and Oakland (2009) during a nine-year big league career. Hairston has a .247 career average...

A Tale of Two Legends

The devastating news du jour as pitchers and catchers reported today was that Cubs legend (TM) Tony Campana was designated for assignment and thus likely exposed to waivers assuming that the Cubs can’t trade him.  There is actually a good chance that some random team (my guess is the Atlanta Braves) will use one of their open spots to claim Tony, and then the cycle of Cubs fan...

Wrigley Field Sells Out in Record Time

Teenage Mutant Ninja Cubbies

One of the benefits of being a parent is being able to watch television shows that you would otherwise feel guilty about watching by yourself. My daughter has become a fan of the most recent version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The new version has made numerous changes to the cartoon and movies that I watched as a child, but the same basic premise of the main characters is...
