    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    Man, did this guy crash and burn. In 2007 he was 11-8 with a 3.92 ERA, and everything was looking up. Turn the calendar to 2008 and he couldn't find the strikezone. He spent the season being demoted step-by-step all the way down to rookie ball. Now it's 2009 and he's being traded for a PTBNL. Amazing collapse.

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    At this point, a player to be named later can't be any worse than Hill has been...


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Truer words were never spoken.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Nobody "sells low" like Hendry. It's a crapshoot, and it's probably not a terrible deal now, but a year or two ago, he was an excellent bargaining chip.

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    I think the PTBN is going to be contingent on how he does in 2009 is what I've been reading. If he flops then probably going to be some minor prospect. If he turns out to be a servicable starter in the rotation someone of more value will be sent to the Cubs.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    I hate to see a player dive bomb like he has. Hopefully he is one of those "change of scenery" guys and goes to Baltimore and get things turned around.

    The Cubs also sent Wuertz to the A's for a couple guys who will likely fill a minor league roster for the rest of their careers.

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    The Cubs really had no choice. They had to trade him or put him on the Major League roster as he was out of options... To get anything at all in return is a bonus.

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    i dont get why you started a thread that says rich hill got chizzed... how so? he sucked *** and the cubs were looking to get rid of him. he knew that, fans knew it, it was pretty obvious lol.

    it sucks that he crashed after one good year, but this guy all of a sudden turned to garbage. he couldnt get guys out in AAA, in Mesa extended spring training or in venezuela ball.... dont know what happened

    The Cubs did him a favor by trading him. At least now he has a CHANCE to make the majors again...

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    also note that the cubs traded micheal wuertz for a couple minor leaguers from the A's... OF Rich Robnett a former first-round pick in 2004 who has only hit .256 in the minor leagues, and IF Justin Sellers who can play both SS and 2B... not sure what that does for us unless we are just getting more guys for the minor league rosters

    Re: Cubs send Hill to Orioles

    It was either get something out of Hill and Wuertz now or loose them on waivers after spring training. The PTBNL for Hill might end up being a bucket of balls if he doesn't make the O's rotation.
