I think he's one of the better pick ups right now. He could take the league by storm. He showed that he could pitch in AAA, even though he's been slowing down a bit over his last couple starts.

Color me intrigued by this guy - Wada has had sustained success for some time now in the minors with his wide assortment of offerings - I will be watching his first start closely. Reminiscent of Despaigne

Good comp, except Wada actually has good control, which can make his stuff work.

Anyone giving him a shot today? Pitching 2nd half of the double header against an awful David Holmberg. Only downside is pitching in Great American.

precisely because he's pitching the 2nd half against a bad pitcher is why im rolling with him. i dont know if maybe they'll sit some of their guys like bruce or billy so if they do that can only help. also they dont know him well so advantage wada. but yeah pitching in Great-Am is a bit of a risk.

Was the Cubs rotation that good that they kept a 33 year old performing that well in the minors until now? Doesn't it seem obvious they are trying to tank it this year? I mean the Astros have been accused of tanking but they didn't even have the talent to bring up.

They've been tanking for three straight years. It's not news.

Who's spot was he supposed to take? Not Samardzjia, Hammel, Wood, or Arrieta. Plus Jackson is making too much money to lose his spot and he's had his moments this year too. Its just been a numbers game against Wada. He was just supposed to be depth this year.

They may be "tanking" to a degree but it has nothing to do with keeping him down. That said I snagged him up and am hopeful he can be useful ROS

Yea, this is his first year with the Cubs, and they didn't have any spots in their rotation until now. Hopefully he can continue his success in AAA.

Yea I agree now. When they traded Samard I saw something about Straily having a better shot at pitching in the majors than he had in Oakland due to the Cubs starting rotation being so thin. Guess I should've done a little homework

I hope this is a joke. He is no where near that type of player and has been aroun for a few years now. He didn't cut it with the orioles due to injuries and under performance but he was supposed to be better than Chen

Yep, It's amazing that ESPN hasn't been following him around AAA for this entire season taking pictures of Wada and his dog.
