      Assistant coach Bobby Meacham also let go.....I had no idea he was there. I hope he wasn't a fielding coach.

        Or 3rd base coach. Or base running.

          Bobby Meachum should not be a coach. How can he relate or even measure success? He never had any.

              How did the Cubs ruin such an excellent prospect?

                Right after he did another interview about how great it was to be on the more permissive Cubs and not on those regimented "cookie cutter" Yankees. Whoops.

                I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd, when they said "sit down" I stood up.

                    Former Yankee Rob Refsnyder made possibly the catch of the season in todays Red Sox game vs the Mariners.

                      Cubs: Clint Frazier no longer wants to be called Clint Frazier (msn.com)


                      Oddballs, especially in MLB, were many times referred to as "flakes"

                      This guy is more than a flake - I think he's a weirdo lol

                      Good Luck to you Jackson!

                        Because he wants to go by his middle name which others call him by?

                            No, I wasn't even thinking about the name thing.

                            I just find it to be an odd way of getting his name into the public eye. I guess I question why he even allows this kind of stuff to be distract him. IMO he and his agent aren't doing a good job at creating good public opinion.

                            He should be all about how hard he's working to keep a job at the ML level - nothing more, nothing less.

                            I guess what I'm saying is Mr. Frazier should keep his mouth shut and earn the privilege of being in the public eye.

                              I was just about to mention this.

                              Reminds me of the line in "Bull Durham": "If you win 20 games in The Show, you can let the fungus grow back on your shower shoes and the press will think you're colorful! Until you win 20 games, it means you're a slob."

                                Giancarlo is his real first name though.
