Intentional walk leads to big inning vs. Mariners

ALMOST DID IT AGAIN The Mariners let the Yankees make it interesting, but a 7-2 deficit in the ninth is too big a mountain to climb, even against a bad Mariners club and a tiring Cliff Lee. At the...

Nats President Stan Kasten Hosts Sports Talk, Challenges Adam Dunn

↵Sports talk radio is usually so formulaic -- first time, long time, thanks for taking my call -- that sometimes it's fun for local stations to spice up the talent pool with some local...

Mystery Team Claims Adam Dunn off waivers

(Disclaimer - this is old news (5 days ago) but I didn't see it posted and Dunn's a good discussion topic) Wonder who it is? They'd have to pay $4 million for the rest of the season, but wouldn't have to trade talent to do it, according to the article. This is OT to the Cubs, unless they're the mystery team, which is interesting but highly doubtful.

One week into the season and i thought it would be interesting to keep tabs on how Bradley's season goes compared to the other options the Cubs had to sign in the off seaon, namely Adam Dunn and Bobby Abreu. All bat left handed and could play right field. Bradley signed a 3yr 30 mil Dunn signed a 2yr 20 mil with the Nationals Abreu signed a 1 yr 5 mil with the Angels. While i favored signing Dunn with the option of trading DLee, many liked the Bradley signing because of his career year with the Rangers. Abreu never seemed like an option but after the deal he signed with the Angels, it would have certainly been a bargain compared to what the Cubs signed Bradley for or would have signed Dunn for. Numbers after the first week. Bradley- Hits: 1 Runs: 3 HR:1 RBI: 1 Avg: .059 OBP: 370 Dunn- Hits:8 Runs: 4 HR: 2 RBI: 8 Avg: .333 OBP: 571 Abreu- Hits: 7 Runs: 1 HR:0 RBI: 6 Avg: .292 OBP: 333 Also Bradley left Sunday's game early because of tightness in his quad. Of course nobody should be surprised because of his history of injuries. Clearly you can't say if the Cubs made the correct signing yet but it will be interesting to see where this heads. Ill updated the numbers as we go along. Also if anyone thinks another player should be added that they could have signed or played in right field let me know and ill add their numbers.
