    Poll: Hak Ju Lee vs. Logan Watkins

    This might seem like a no brainer when comparing Top 50 prospect Hak-Ju Lee to the fringy Logan Watkins, but wait. A few years ago, in the lower leve;s of the Cubs farm system, Logan Watkins and Hak...

    Now that Carlos Quentin's close to an extension with the Padres, bad decision or not, this should be great for Soriano's trade market. Similar to the Dempster market vs. Garza/Greinke/Hamels...

    I was hoping to wake up this morning an the answer would be all over Twitter. I do think that the Cubs are the favorites, but it's hard not to be scared of the Yankees and even Red Sox and Phillie...

    The thing is, power hitting 1st basemen are simply not that hard to come by. Unless they're something special, teams aren't going to draft 1 dimensional slugging 1st basemen. Looking in our own...

    Too bad Red Sox fans are too busy coming off their delusions that they'd get Brett Jackson or Starlin Castro to accept the fact that they're getting a reliever with electric stuff that can be a back...

    I was thinking that it does free up a 40 man spot. Interesting that early on, it was absolutley nobody off the 40 man, but now it is.

    One thing I suggested a while back. It's probably safe to assume that come July, the Cubs will be well out of the playoff picture and the Red Sox very much in the thick of it. Rather then sending...

    He has a long way to go. As of now, he's a fat 17 year old. If Rizzo is our 1B of the future, perhaps he can build up some trade value over the next few years.

    I'm not saying he won't cut it,...

    Why on earth would you want it to be Samrdzjia when he finally seems to be figuring things out after all of these years?

    This news definitely puts my mind at ease, because aside from Garza,...

    Yeh, they won't be getting BJax. Maybe JJax, but Brett isn't even an option, unless they're sending us Ellsbury. He's still considered out top prospect by most, and a big cog of the future of the...

    Anyone can become a surprise, but I'm talking about guys who are projected to be stars. I like Vogelbachs bat, but my main concern is defense unless the NL adopts the DH by the time he's ready to...
  13. On one hand, former Cuban stars Ramirez and...

    On one hand, former Cuban stars Ramirez and Viciedo could make the White Sox very attractive to Soler, but I thought the same about Cespedes.

    However, over the past 3 years, Kenny Williams has...

    George Soler is a mere mortal.

    George Soler did NOT kill Laura Palmer

    George Soler is not a tasty sandwich made of various meats, mustard, and pickels.

    If you kick George Soler does he not...

    True, but is not a farm system full of highly rated prospects more likely to yield top players panning out than one without? Between around 2001-2007, the Cubs have had a large amount of flops, but...

    I don't think that there's enough Koo Aid in the world to convince me that this could happen, but what if all the stars align and everything goes our way:

    Matt Garza: pitches like a legit ace as...

    I certainly like Carpenters stuff, but looking at our bullpen, it's one place that we're full of depth: Marmol, Wood, Samardzjia, Russell, Lendy Castillo, Mateo, Dolis, Beliveau, Casey Weathers(whose...

    I doubt that they want Casey Coleman. Maybe Jay Jackson who still has some trace of upside, but we've seen what Casey Coleman has to offer and it's not much.

    To be honest, if all I the stars align and a lot goes right this year, IE Stewart, Soriano, LaHair, Soto, Volstad, T. Wood, Maholm etc, I think that this team could flirt with .500. However, I'd...

    It looks like the Yankee are very close to completing a deal with the Pirates for A.J. Burnett. This may seemingly look like the wrong thread for this, or not even deserving I mention but it actually...

    I usually don't trust these AAAA players as they say, but LaHair has impressed a lot of people who know a lot more than I do, so maybe he's more that just another Hoffpauir or Fox. If nothing else...

    More than that, it would be the first defining acquisition of the Epstein Era.

    Soler probably means more to The Cubs as an organization than he would for any other team. That probably isn't...

    You should. The position he plays actually makes him more valuable.

    We have plenty of starting pitching depth. Garza, Dempster, Wells, Volstad, Maholm, Wood, Sonnenstine, Coleman, Jackson, Rusin, Struck, Lopez, and Cabrera are plenty. I'd also like to see Samardzjia...
