    Jake Fox, who simply dominated Triple A, is called up for the Cubs

    .423/.503/.886 in 149 AB. That's a 1.389 OPS.

    17 HR, 50 RBI, 14 2B, 2 3B. Yeah, over half his hits have been for extra bases.

    He's 26, but... I am quiet curious as to how he does. He was 2-14 during his first call up in 2007.

    Since I have connections to him here in Indy I hope he does well even though he is a dastardly Cub, but until I see different I think he is nothing more than Champ Summers or Roberto Petagine.

    Speaking of the Cubs, Zambrano argues call, gets tossed, ball heads to bleachers ala Rob Dibble

    Not to get this thread too off topic, but it was my first grade teacher's arm that Dibble broke when he threw the ball into the stands. It's a small world.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I've never understood that. He threw it from 200 feet away(pitchers mound to centerfield right?) and still had enough on it to not only bruise, but break a bone.
    Wow could he throw hard.

    IIRC, she said that the ball hit her, and bounced into her drink. I guess he was told to apologize, but did it in a bad way. I'll try and email her.
