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...

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...

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.

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...
