The TEN: 7/14/17

(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in The TEN”)

1.) The Chicago Cubs acquire LHP Jose Quintana from the Chicago White Sox on Thursday (yesterday) for OF Eloy Jimenez, RHP Dylan Cease and INFs Matt Rose and Bryant Flete.

2.) “Jesse Gordo Ramirez hands down the one of the best or thee best running back from schurr. Transferred in his junior year from the promise breaking Bishop Amat. Gordo was not the fastest but he had great vision and knew how to use his lineman to get open and into the end zone.”—MVS commenter “Seen it with my own eyes”

3.) On this date in 1995 the Dodgers’ Ramon Martinez no hits the Florida Marlins 7-0.

4.) Lonzo Ball

5.) This comment was posted by “Falcon” on this date in 2014: “I had the pleasure of living two doors down from Giancarlo Stanton and watch him grow up so I would like to share a good story.
While he was playing Little League baseball no one would pitch to him so one day he showed up to a game with a wooden bat and holding it in one hand, showed it to the pitcher and said, ” give me something to hit” and proceeded to crush the ball out of the park. If you show up to Verdugo Hills HS you can still see the fence shaking from one of his blasts as an underclassmen.”

6.) Glendale football legend Pathon Rucker turns 44 today.

7.) In new 3-4 defensive alignment the Los Angeles Rams projected starting linebackers are:
OLB: Connor Barwin, ILB Mark Barron, ILB Alec Ogletree, OLB Robert Quinn.

8.) “I wouldn’t start bronzing his likeness just yet. Get him off the glorified YMCA court & into Staples… then we will know.”—Jim Singiser on Lonzo Ball.

9.) “Just went to Mini-Bat Day at the Ballpark. I think of Mini-Bat Day as Road Rage Resolution Tool Day.”—Dennis Miller

10.) South El Monte at Alhambra (Moor Field) on Friday, August 25.

    Blake will make that lousy receiver core look like the rams on Kurt Warner days, Defenses will not know how to cover, if they protect the pass then your threat Koby will have, not windows to go through, but will have gates to walk through.
    I say Blake gets offered after junior year before his senior season. take that to the bank

    Cantwell just picked up two transfers. More to come on that. As for the brawl sad thing was coaches were involved and that’s never a good thing.
    Cathedral… rich get richer two kids (already with offers) will enroll at cathedral.
    South El Monte did infact fire their Strength and Conditioning coach. Very strange timing. Gotta be some kind of backstory right??? Yup… word is Frank Gallardo screamed his coach down in front of his players and other coaches which is common practice for him and Samano said F*** You do it yourself and walked away.
    Staying in the MVL Arroyo is without a defensive line coach as Ellis McCarthy … “didn’t work out” lol apparently there was some kind of disagreement with his baldness and well that’s never gonna end well for the other side.So he’s gone.
    Quinn People’s is in fact at Los Altos leaving Bassett and rejoining his old coach giving The Conquerors a legit deep threat.
    Schurr- In good news Dave Ramos has been thrilled with assistant coach Elias giving him even more of the offensive responsibilities. Ramos who is known for his run, run and then run some more philosophy is excited about how good his offense can be this season and can’t wait to showcase just how good his passing attack will be. Word from the hill is they feel like a CIF title is coming home.

    I know Blake is a threat but he’s s QB.. he needs weapons. Besides, I was just referring to threat in terms of catching the ball and housing it. Amat only has Koby. Which is why coaches are working the phones behind the scenes.

    Please stop Bishop lovers and haters. MVS does not cover Bishop. Go over to Aram and Fred at SGVN to whine and cry. We already have plenty our own on this site.

    @SGVFootbalcorrespondent/TMZ who is the offensive threat?

    I hear things…. Bishop Amat isn’t losing a ton of kids. But word is talent is extremely low. They have only one threat offensively and that’s it. Ground game is pretty much average at best although I did hear a certain name keep popping up as transferring in from a local school which would boost that aspect. Defense will be tough for Amat as usual maybe we’ll see a lot 14-7 games or something
