    I remember when everyone was making fun of me for saying that Lahair would switch to Right field. Not going to be that guy and say I told you so.

    Re: Let the hype escalate: Rizzo reportedly called up to Cubs

    The first day he could of gone up without wasting a year of arbitration was Saturday, right?

    I was kind of surprised they didn't have him up on Saturday, but my guess is they were just waiting to debut him at Wrigley...

    What else do you want him to do in AAA? He has the highest OPS in the PCL by a wide margin.

    Why? If anything he's over ready right now. There was nothing else for him to prove at Iowa.

    I've been saying that too! Smart move, as well. Now trade DeJesus!

    Re: Let the hype escalate: Rizzo reportedly called up to Cubs

    75 game win streak starts today.
    Then we lose a couple, and sweep our way to that elusive title.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Why? 700 at-bats in AAA is plenty. There isn't much difference between 700 ABs at AAA and 1000 ABs at AAA. If he's going to struggle again in the bigs, he's going to struggle whether he had 300 ABs or 500 ABs in AAA this year.

    Re: Let the hype escalate: Rizzo reportedly called up to Cubs

    I think we could make a trade for a future pitching prospect for DeJesus. I say we just take Soriano the rest of the way. Not going to get anything significant and still going to eat up almost all of his contract. I've heard nothing but good things about him being a team player.
