It could happen literally any moment now, but when will it become official? The CTL panel debates when Anthony Rizzo will finally get the promotion to the Cubs - 6/21
What did they do with Anthony -- Because he can be on the roster effective Saturday. And not have enough service time to be able to get himself to free agency a year earlier. Now if you Graham up Saturday misses by one day I've been told by people who have knowledge of how things work and the union. That they'll be a grievance and you'll lose every time because it's obvious she waited one day here now for its 34 days. It is what it is and he knows how the game is played. I would bet you'll see if any results sometime early next week. And he will be every day at first base well I would bring him up on the next. Whenever they start to our next extended road trip that would be they are hall let's see their home. There Arizona for three to come home Monday to play the Mets. And the Astros and then they -- that Sunday night to go to Atlanta and they're gone the whole week that's that's what I would ever. The week I bring him up to start getting antsy because I don't think July 2 with so much it's been said about a -- and all the expectations and all that -- whatnot. To have him. Come up and start at Wrigley Field. Where you off he goes all freight the first few games now all of a sudden the world is collapse and you know now we've got another crisis on the Cubs and let him start out on the road where maybe there's little less media a little less pressure. Let him get his feet wet there for a week and then come back and then I mean he's he's a lyrical little more subtle that contributes to more and then. I believe it was either jet jet said this -- About three weeks ago we said don't expect him to just come up and be the savior was able to -- -- out of field. The cigarette you know stuff like that you know because they don't know they wanna kind of temper that pressure that's going to be on them yes you won it ease and then Brett. Ever Olympics Mickey Mantle is showing up and he's going to be a good player but he's not Albert Pujols today right then the other and that's the problem that we have now because if we're rookies when they come up. You know if they're not Fred Lynn and able to win an MVP in their rookie year you know that. I think that there are about three rocket Robin Ventura came up that today and had to start the he had when he was a rookie. I'm not trying all I know I went one for 35 yeah I am what was inter hold for. Almost all for forty or just -- get. Just couldn't do that today because of Georgia so much attention so much pressure on these guys coming up that guys just cannot ease their way in and in normal I don't anymore but. -- about this I don't know Josh Hamilton when he came in and we had some problems and all the stuff but does that kinda. Raises them a little bit even Bryce Harper a little bit has had a little bit success he's had some home runs and I remember his game when he is the end. You know he stole home and stuff like that does that kind of raise expectations say hey if these guys can come in step in and contribute right away. Does that raise expectations for his a when he comes in this fan base there's been expectations are always unrealistic Felix PA Corey Patterson. Gary Scott Kevin Horry whoever it is.
