    We were bad because other teams had better players. Sevum had little to do with it since he does not bat, field, or throw. The guys who are really responsible for our play are the guys who put these...

    2013 our team ERA was a sterling 4.0. I would hope we could improve on that. We were next to last in all of baseball in team hitting at a remarkable .238. Our leader was Scheirholtz at .251 and...

    Please do not sign any more players with injuries. I bet half our recent signers are either currently injured or coming off surgery. I know they are cheap but there is a reason for that.

    Trading either Rizzo or Castro sounds absurd just after signing them to long term high dollar deals. Add to that both are not playing very well and it even sounds more absurd as no GM in his right...

    Would you trade everyone of these guys for a "Prospect"? Probably only 25-30% of prospects ever make it to the majors. Without these guys we would almost guarantee another 100 loss season. Who would...

    The Cards also added a couple of decent RB's which will help Palmer's game. The new head coach believes in having a running game more so than Whiz. Of course Whiz did not have much to work with.

    I have only watched Stanek out of all these guys and he impressed me to no end. He plays against tough competition also. Having not seen the other guys personally if they are better than Stanek then...

    Remember Mark Prior and Kerry Wood. Great pitchers but there arms went south very early. Trading away our youg prospects all at once is counter to what Theo said we were doing and I am really not...

    I think Palmer is much better than anyone on the Cards current QB roster. Kolb is in year 6 or 7 and has shown basically nothing except an addiction to injury. Ending last year in game 4 with a...

    Rome was not built in a day. Give this very young man a chance to mature and learn what works and does not work.

    From just watching Castro he looks like a natural born hitter. Possible a 20 home run guy as he continues to fill out. He still needs more plate discipline and that should come unless he is...

    Almost any business has a philosophy or a goal of "Maximizing Profits". The philosophy part comes in on how to do that. Fans are not known for worrying about profits or 5 years from now. Should we...

    I would sign Johnson for the bench and Dempster if the price and length is right. He takes care of his body and is a bull dog and a leader.

    Well put Jack. The reality is we lost over 100 games and have no stars in the near future in the minors. Our prospects we acquired are just what they are-prospects. Our future is based on hope. What...

    I just do not understand Epstein and his logic what so ever. He says our greatest need is pitching. Why then would we trade a 28 year old Garza for prospects? Garza is a proven commodity and would be...

    Soriano is obviously the most productive player on the Cubs team. He is also hustling and has zero errors. Since he only has 1-2 years on his contract and the Cubs would likely have to eat most of...

    I for one do not have patience beyond three years. If we do not show improvement year by year for three years then do not expect some magic miracle to happen in year five. Rebuilding is a matter of...

    The question should be will he be our starter next year or will he hit 25 HR?

    You nailed that one. 500 HR hall of famer and multi MVP.

    Something we all need to know is whether the Cubs even intend to participate in free agency after the season. This is certainly an unanswered question as Theo has said he intends to rebuild from...

    He has generally been a very bad base runner. Making to many mental mistakes. He should be got on when he does this or the manager is not doing his job. Castro came up with a bit of cockiness you...

    I think with a team as bad as this every little thing is going to be magnified beyond what it should. Castro had unbelievable first two years. I would not have expected him to keep that pace up. I...

    I think he will. Aside from his hitting he has also been an exceptional fielder and clutch hitter. He and Grace had some great duals over the years. I am no fan of Helton but I do appreciate his...
