This morning, there are a whole bunch of things you need to see.
First, if you didn’t watch the Home Run Derby last night (blech . . Fielder), you might have missed this little gem:
Poor Ian Stewart needs to learn not to feed the trolls. He should come hang out at LOHO. We could protect him.
I fee like Ian was a little more than “fired up.” Notice our beloved Carl in there trying to calm him down.
And hahahahaha. Don’t you hate those guys who have great seats to a great game and never look up from their phones? Well so does God.
The Cubs have signed outfielder Albert Almora, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, according to Baseball America.
The Cubs have not confirmed the deal, which is pending a physical.
Almora, a Scott Boras client, reportedly signed a bonus worth $3.9 million. The pick’s recommend slot value was $3.25 million.
“We’re working on it,” Boras said to The Chicago Tribune. “They knew the player, and they knew the value of the player. With where the Cubs are at, I think the fan base has to believe in player development. So that means these types of signings are very important.”
Almora, who committed to the University of Miami, was considered one of the best all-around position players in the Draft.
Aaaaand that’s all I’ve got this morning. We’ll be back with more All-Star Game hijinks, and of course Darlin’s Starlin and Bryan LaHair later on today!
