Another way to think about Cubs making big deal for pitching at trade deadline

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 03:16:57 GMT

The Cubs know agents and other teams will sense the desperation if they have to replace 40 percent of their rotation this offseason. Signing at least two frontline starters would be a massive undertaking and a huge financial commitment for a franchise that prefers to make long-term investments in hitters and use a pay-as-you-go plan for pitching. Now the Cubs see the July 31 trade deadline as a chance to get a jump on that market, so they don’t feel forced to win two bidding wars on free agents or rushed into a lopsided deal for the top-of-the-rotation starter every contender wants. “Every transaction season — winter and summer — we’re always going to be looking for pitching,” general manager Jed Hoyer said.



Cubs won’t look outside for leadoff hitter when they have Anthony Rizzo and pitching priorities

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 20:59:49 GMT

This conventional idea of a leadoff hitter is an endangered species, a rare commodity like the young, top-of-the-rotation starter the Cubs will prioritize at the July 31 trade deadline.  “You never rule out anything,” general manager Jed Hoyer said. “If it makes us better, then we’ll talk about doing it. But pitching’s the priority, now and this winter. We know that’s organizationally where we need to go.”  Plus, the Cubs already have the greatest leadoff hitter of all-time. Just ask Anthony Rizzo, who’s clearly enjoying an experiment that manager Joe Maddon doesn’t plan to end anytime soon. Rizzo’s leadoff streak of getting on base in seven straight games — home run, home run, walk, single,



MLB will not suspend Anthony Rizzo for violating collision rule

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 22:01:58 GMT

Major League Baseball has spoken, and Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was in violation of the Buster Posey Rule when he collided with San Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges during Monday’s game. Despite the ruling, the league has decided not to fine or suspend Rizzo for the play. No player has been suspended for a home-plate collision since the league instituted an updated version of the rule in 2014.



Padres beat Cubs 3-2 on Torrens' bases-loaded walk

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 23:17:39 GMT

A dash of power, followed by patience at the plate, paid off for the San Diego Padres. Erick Aybar hit a tying home run in the sixth inning, Luis Torrens walked with the bases loaded against Koji Uehara in the eighth and the Padres stopped a three-game losing streak by beating the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Wednesday. Torrens, a rookie who started at catcher for the second straight game for the injured Austin Hedges, took a 3-1 fastball that sailed inside with two outs to force in the go-ahead run.



Rizzo hits leadoff HR, Cubs beat Padres 4-0

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 04:19:16 GMT

Anthony Rizzo said all his talking is making him an annoying teammate. The new leadoff hitter is making up for it with his bat, lifting the Chicago Cubs with another first-inning homer Monday night in a 4-0 victory over the San Diego Padres. "I'm sure my teammates are starting to get a little tired of it because I'm constantly in their ears," Rizzo said.



Rizzo speaks with MLB, no discipline for plate collision

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 00:23:43 GMT

Anthony Rizzo received a call from Major League Baseball about his collision Monday with San Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges at home plate, but the Chicago Cubs slugger will not be punished. MLB Chief Baseball Officer Joe Torre spoke with Rizzo on Tuesday to inform him he had violated Rule 7.13, which protects catchers from collisions.



Report: MLB rules Anthony Rizzo's controversial slide illegal

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 19:13:40 GMT

As Anthony Rizzo streaked toward home plate in the sixth inning, nobody knew it was about to be the most-talked about play in baseball for a news cycle (or longer). Rizzo smacked into San Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges, attemping to jar the ball loose and score an all-important run in a close game at Wrigley Field. The play is a rarity in this game now, as MLB rules have changed to try avoid home plate collisions and keep players on the field. The Cubs backed Rizzo and didn't think he did anything wrong.  The Padres were upset, with manager Andy Green calling it a "cheap shot."  Who's in the right? Let's treat this like an internet court case: RIZZO'S CASE Anthony Rizzo said it's "game on."
