Found December 02, 2011 on Cub Reporter:
Well, it looks like if you're gonna be a Chicago Cub any more, you better learn plate discipline. A little patience. Make the pitcher work. That kinda stuff. Tyler Colvin, he can hit a homer once in awhile, but he ain't no walker. David DeJesus on the other hand, has 359 walks in his 3797 career at-bats. Young Tyler, he's got 46 in his 581 career at-bats. If you pro Tyler's 581 at-bats to 3797, his walks project to about 300. (That's me doing math, so as always there's a giant chance it's wrong, but whatever.) So very roughly, Tyler is about half the walker David is. Now, is David a top walker overall? I don't know, I'm freaking busy! Anyway, it's a new regime, and it's very interesting. I always liked Tyler Colvin, but I tell ya... if I'm a Cub minor leaguer, I sure as hell am going to become waaaay more disciplined at the plate. Okay, gotta scram. Crazy busy.

Cubs Sign Kim DeJesus' Husband To A 2-Year Deal

photo via @KimDeJesus12 (hope that's ok, Kim) Kim DeJesus' already lucky husband got a little more fortunate today when he signed a 2 year contract with the Chicago Cubs worth 10 million dollars. Kim's spouse spent 8 seasons with the Kansas City Royals and one - last season - with the Oakland A's. He has a .284 career batting average; hitting a total of 207 doubles...

Nobody ***** With The DeJesus

(props to Jacos for the headline) The Cubs signed OF David DeJesus to a 2-year/$10 million deal with a 3rd year club option. It's actually $4.25M for the next two years with a $1.5M buyout or $6.5M in 2014. A Jim Bowden tweet indicates that the Cubs told him DeJesus will be the everyday right fielder. Dejesus will be 32 next season and played for the A's last year and had...

DeJesus signs with Cubs...

Only reason I'm posting about this guy coming off the board is because there were many Mets fans who wanted him signed.  David DeJesus has signed a two year 10M contract with the Cubs.  The problem with DeJesus is that he doesn't have the typical power for the NL corners and no longer has the range to be a starting center fielder.  I think DeJesus is better suited for...

DeJesus eager to begin Cubs tenure

A couple of months ago, free agent David DeJesus, his wife and 18-month-old son moved into a new house in suburban Wheaton, Ill., to be closer to his wife's family. They didn't know at the time David's next team would be an easy commute from home.

Fantasy Impact: DeJesus Signs with Cubs and Rockies Ship Iannetta to Angels

Winter meetings are just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of moves to ponder. I’ll do my best to avoid discussing the impact of relief pitcher signings because players that might be closers now (Daniel Bard) might not be closers very soon (Ryan Madson to Red Sox?). As for the rest of the positions, there’s much we can glean early on before the...

Your Morning Phil: DeJesus, Paddy, Jenks

Talking baseball while wishing ESPN the Magazine had spared us the Ozzie Guillen/dog kisser cover: 1) Sometimes it really is good to think about something. I’m glad I didn’t write about the David DeJesus signing on Wednesday, when it happened, because I would have gotten it wrong.

Hot Corner: It's good to be ... David DeJesus

The Cubs signed him Wednesday to a two-year deal with a club option for a third that could pay him $15 million. And his wife, Kimberly, is excited, too. She tweeted that she was ‘‘born and raised’’ in Wheaton, her dad had Cubs season tickets and Ryne Sandberg was her childhood crush. ‘‘When...

Cubs buy time for Jackson with DeJesus deal

Phil Rogers: The free-agent signing of David DeJesus means Brett Jackson probably will start 2012 with Triple-A Iowa, a far better situation than had Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer handed Jackson the right-field job in spring training.

Theo Epstein Gets to Work With Cubs, Signs David DeJesus to Two-Year Deal

Theo Epstein got his manager a couple of weeks back, and now he's wading into the free-agent pool, making his first splash as Cubs president. The Cubs inked outfielder David DeJesus to a two-year deal on Wednesday, marking the first player-related move in Epstein's and new general manager Jed Hoyer's reign on the North Side of Chicago. The 31-year-old outfielder represents...
