Something like that cannot be a coincidence. It's got to be a product of both a poor approach to instructing discipline, and a drafting approach that doesn't value patient hitters.

That's not always an indicator of a lack of movement. Some of the Cubs' biggest moves under Hendry came without any warning.

I think that's statistically true of most overslot highschoolers, no? It's just a numbers game - there are 60 to 100 overslot highschoolers signed in each draft (that's just an estimate from the hip).

The Cubs don't need to get back $10 million in value for Pena. They just need to get whatever value they can get. The $10 million is a sunk cost; trade Pena for a prospect and a couple million in...

Even after his terrible outing, I'd still rather see Lopez out there for another start than James Russell (not to mention the fact that Russell's been pretty good in the pen).

Samardzija was a 5th round pick, and his $10 million was over a five-year ML contract.

I know that sound nit-picky, but I think it matters when evaluating the move.
