How Gregory Polanco Threw Out Trevor Cahill

It’s mostly a matter of aesthetics. A little bit of pride, but, for the most part, an out is an out, if you did nothing wrong. Batters make outs most of the time, especially if the batter’s name is Trevor Cahill. The Cubs, presumably, aren’t bothered that Cahill made an out in the fifth inning on Tuesday. They would’ve expected as much, and if anything, they’d be happy...

Gregory Polanco easily retires Trevor Cahill on a 9-3 putout

Usually when we see 9-3 putouts, a catcher or pitcher is running, the right fielder is playing shallow, and uncorks a laser beam of a throw to retire the baserunner. And on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, that’s exactly what happened when Gregory Polanco gunned out Trevor Cahill, who wasn’t even running hard to first. At least Cahill did his job for the Cubs on the mound – he...

Fantasy Roundup: The Potential of Polanco

Gregory Polanco             Polanco is a player of immense potential, but throughout the first half of the season he failed to deliver on it. That has changed of late however, as since August 4, Polanco has seen his average climb from .243 to .264 and is batting .392 for the month of August. This weekend was no exception to this trend as he recorded a multi-hit game each...

WATCH: Polanco slips, misplays routine fly ball to give Cubs win

The Chicago Cubs used this past offseason to put a new regime in place and give the team a new identity, and they hope that the days of often being on the losing end of embarrassing gaffes and unfortunate events are behind them. It seems that they may be onto something, as luck was on their side during Friday afternoon’s game against the Pirates. The two teams battled it out...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Media drops ball on Gregory Polanco

Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug; opening image credit If Gregory Polanco’s 5-for-7 night at the plate- capped off by a go-ahead 2-run home run in the 13th inning of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ eventual 8-6 victory over the Miami Marlins- is any indication of what is to come, Pittsburgh should have called up the star prospect much, much sooner. Finally! Image credit...

Pirates offered Polanco a long term deal

On Tuesday night, Yahoo and CBS reported that the Pirates offered top prospect Gregory Polanco a seven year contract during spring training–which he turned down. The deal was reportedly worth about $25 million over seven years, and it also had three club option years which could have made the contract worth between $50 million and $60 million. This is pretty big news. Everyone’s...

The Indy Indians are teasing us with Gregory Polanco

Any Pirate fan should know all about Gregory Polanco by now, but if you don’t, he’s the Pirates’ top prospect – an outfielder with sky high potential, all the tools (OBP/plate discipline, power, speed, arm, etc), and ridiculous numbers in Triple-A Indianapolis. Through 23 games, he is hitting .400/.460/.644 with 4 HR and 24 RBI. After a couple of national feature stories...
