    What he actually said earlier was something to the extent of "keep the natural 3rd baseman at third" which doesn't really make sense if the "natural 3rd baseman" isn't going to be better at 3rd than...

    I think Castro is starting to figure out that he needs to be this guy, even though he's still young. When Baez was on the fringe of coming up and Castro was saying very encouraging words to the press...

    As far as I understand, the primary prospect writers (Mayo and Callis) don't actually do the in-season updates on MLB.com. That means Mayo and Callis could actually like him more or less or could be...

    He really isn't. The question is do you move the better or worse defender to left field and the answer is always move the worse defender because the return on having a better third baseman is going...

    Yes but that's never going to happen if you leave a poor third baseman at third and move a middle infielder to left field. You hamper your infield defense in the scenario he's talking about which...

    What we're saying is that years of data shows that most players who are not very good at third usually get better in a corner outfield spot, assuming they have the arm for it. I'm not talking in...

    I think bat speed was a bit of a concern with KLaw, too, at one point but he's come around on it?

    I'm not a scout but I don't see it at all. He seems to be able to hit anything.

    It appears he's terrible at managing the base-running game. They were stealing a lot on him (as opposed to on the catcher). He's going to have to work at that because he was giving up extra bases...

    I still don't know why you'd give up that much talent for one player who could get injured and make the trade a bust instead of piecing out players to fill holes you actually need (since the Cubs...

    I'm kind of upset he's leaving BP because I liked his columns and I'm sure there are other good scouts out there. It feels like the Cubs have been pursuing "names" from the scouting and statistical...

    You're talking about a guy who would need to go to the minors and not a college senior who would possibly be able to move quickly to the majors. It would be a really strange trade since the Astros...

    LF is considered the 2nd easiest position to play on the field. Your defense is better because Bryant would be good at left field. 3rd base is a much more important position and it's much more...

    Why would you move the player who would be the better 3rd baseman (Baez) to left field and keep the weaker third baseman at third? That doesn't make any sense. Fringe middle infielders who have...

    If the Cubs call-up Bryant right away, I just hope it's to play left-field. Unfortunately, I don't know if Renteria has noticed that Coghlan has turned back into a pumpkin (sort-of).

    I just can't hypothetically doom one of "our guys" to play for Miami. I would feel really sorry for them if that was their destination.

    If foot injuries can tank the value of Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera, I'm willing to give Bryant a pass. I guess. :laugh:

    40 man roster slots become really valuable in the off-season. The Cubs have 39 of 40 filled right now. While they will lose two players to free agency (Villanueva and Baker) may non-tender a players...

    The floor is the least you'd expect from a player. Ryan Braun's floor is .800 OPS with below average defense. Braun can run, which adds value, but I'm just pointing out that's a huge floor in a world...
