I’ll be the first to admit that Kameron Loe was especially bad at baseball. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m happy to see the back end of him (not literally). However, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that Carlos Marmol continues to be employed by the Chicago Cubs. Not that I’m saying that should DFA Marmol (though I can see “they should DFA Marmol” from here), but perhaps this would be a good time to come up with a fake injury that allows Carlos to go somewhere and sit down for 15 days.
The rest of the story today is that Ryan Sweeney has been “selected” from Iowa, Rafael Dolis has been “recalled” from Iowa, and Dave Sappelt, he of the late-night Twitter misogyny, has been “optioned” to Iowa.
All of that wasn’t nearly as interesting as the text from a fan that overheard Jeff Baker screaming at some Wrigley employees who asked him for his name. “I played here for 5 years, you don’t know my name?!?” The only appropriate response, of course, would have been “I’m trying to forget it.” But, I mean, I get it. How would you feel if even the crappy Cubs didn’t want you? Jeff is probably dealing with a lot of rage.
