He had a horrendous stint in Venezuela this winter. As of now, Rich Hill is toast. All his issues are command related. He can no longer throw strikes with confidence. Way too many walks. We have the new Rick Ankiel.

Maybe Rich Hill is the right fielder the Cubs have been looking for. :-?

That's too bad... I really like the guy and thought his future was promising.

I had him in '07 and decided not to keep him which is a good thing... unfortunately, the guy I kept in his place was Phil Hughes!!! :-B
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

O's, Cubs Talking Deal For Rich Hill
By Drew Silva [January 29, 2009 at 8:30pm CST]

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are looking to acquire Cubs lefty Rich Hill. Hill is out of options, limiting his value. Zrebiec notes that Hill could benefit from a reunion with Rick Kranitz, his former Triple A pitching coach. Didn't help that Lou Piniella is said to hate pitchers.

An industry source told Zrebiec that it's a "strong possibility" that Hill will end up with the Orioles. Apparently the Cubs would receive a player to be named later in return, the value of whom would hinge on Hill's success in Baltimore. The Mariners have also shown interest, but the O's are believed to be in the lead at this point. Hill, 28, walked 18 in 19.2 innings last year before his demotion to the minors. He had a nice run for the Cubs in 2006-07.

So he is alive? I hope this move does go down. He still will most definitely have his control and longball issues but at least if he gets out of Chicago and Piniella's doghouse he can still have a chance to resurface and try to regain his 07 mojo.
