Here’s a handy Cubs timeline, to help you follow along as we review select scenes from the rich tapestry of Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball history. The embedded links often point to articles that I’ve chosen as illustrative of the scenes, from The Society for American Baseball Research, reproductions of period newspapers, images, and other such material. It’s all lightly unpacked and folded neatly, just for you.You might learn something, but mostly, it’s for fun!Today in baseball history:1902 - A Chicago Daily News headline reads, ‘Manager of the Cubs is in Doubt Only on Two Positions,’ marking the first time that the team’s nickname has appeared in print. Although the moniker has been around since 1890, the Orphans Ken Griffey Jersey , also once known as the Colts and White Stockings, will not officially adopt the Cubs as its new name until 1907. (1)so, not the Microbes?1973 - Twins’ pitcher Jim Perry becomes the first player to use the ‘10 and 5 rule’ when he okays his own trade to the Tigers for minor league pitcher Dan Fife and cash. During his one season in Detroit, Gaylord’s brother will post a 14-13 (.519) record along with an ERA of 4.03 in 35 appearances with the team. (1)1984 - The Philadelphia Phillies trade outfielders Gary Matthews and Bob Dernier and pitcher Porfi Altamirano to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for pitcher Bill Campbell and catcher Mike Diaz. Matthews was named the NLCS Most Valuable Player last season, while Campbell led the National League with 82 pitching appearances. Dernier will win a Gold Glove for Chicago and help them reach the playoffs. His 45 stolen bases will be the most by a Cubs player since 1907. (3)1993 - The Chicago Cubs put second baseman Ryne Sandberg (broken hand) and shortstop Shawon Dunston (lower back) on the disabled list. The two will miss Opening Day for the first time in nine years together.2002 - The Cubs, in desperate need of a closer due to Tom Gordon’s muscle tear, trade righties Julian Tavarez (10-9, 4.52) and Jose Cueto as well as southpaw Dontrelle Willis and catcher Ryan Jorgensen to the Marlins for Antonio Alfonseca (4-4, 28 saves) and right-hander Matt Clement (9-10, 5.05). Willis, next season’s Rookie of the Year in the National League, will become a twenty-game winner for the Fish in 2005. (1)2011 - Cubs P Carlos Silva fails in his bid to become the team’s fifth starter, but says he will refuse an assignment to the minor leagues and makes disparaging remarks about pitching coach Mark Riggins. This pushes the Cubs to release him and swallow $8.5 million for the two years remaining on his contract, while the Seattle Mariners, who traded Silva to the Cubs before the 2010 season, are on the hook for another $5.5 million. Silva has a 10.90 ERA in spring training after a terrible second half last year, and made headlines earlier for getting into a fight in the dugout with 3B Aramis Ramirez.

He struck out 53 and walked 21 in 57 1/3 innings, holding batters to a .255 average.Gearrin also has pitched for Atlanta in a seven-year big league career. He is 12-9 with a 3.54 ERA in 270 relief appearances.“Cory Gearrin brings much needed veteran experience and stability to the back of our bullpen,” Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said. “He has been a solid under-the-radar performer, particularly over the past two seasons.”Gearrin can earn an additional $450,000 for games pitched: $75,000 for 30, $100,000 for 40, $125,000 for 50 and $150,000 for 60. He also can make $775,000 for games finished: $50,000 for 20 http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-...ton-jersey , $175,000 for 30, $250,000 for 40 and $400,000 for 50.Beckham, who turns 29 this month, hit .230 with 17 doubles, 12 homers and 35 RBIs in 96 games for Baltimore last year. He was sidelined from April 23 to June 25 because of a strained left groin.Selected first overall by Tampa Bay in the 2008 amateur draft, Beckham has a .252 average with 48 homers and 151 RBIs in five major league seasons for the Rays and Orioles, who acquired him in July 2017. He batted .278 with 18 doubles, 22 homers and 62 RBIs in 2017.“Tim Beckham is a very talented player who is one year removed from being one of the more productive shortstops in the American League,” Dipoto said. “He is a real offensive threat with multi-position defensive versatility that fits our team very well.”Beckham can earn $250,000 for games started: $50,000 for 80 and each additional 10 through 120.Seattle designated outfielder John Andreoli for assignment to open a roster spot.Notes: OF Domingo Santana agreed to a $1.95 million, one-year contract, getting a raise from $572,400 in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Acquired in an offseason trade, he hit .265 with five home runs and 20 RBIs in a down season in which he lost his regular spot in Milwaukee’s outfield after the Brewers acquired Christian Yelich. In 2017, Santana hit .278 with career-high 30 home runs and 85 RBIs. Seattle is banking on Santana being the right-handed power in its lineup to try and replace loss of Nelson Cruz. Left-hander Roenis Elias is Seattle’s only remaining arbitration-eligible player.
