    Minor league defenses are *never* exaggerated, and "very high" contact is also pretty prospect-creep-y.

    Arrieta has roughly 5/6ths of a year of being great, and he did it on the back of throwing a ton more breaking balls than he used to. I have no problem with giving him a very conservative projection.

    Those things make me love his makeup, personally. But I'm in the "successful athletes tend to be jerks" camp.

    Mid-90s Indians is my go-to comp for what we hope happens here. Except for the not-winning-a-WS part.

    Love it. MacPhail does not get nearly enough due among Cubs fans. His only major mistake was trusting Ed Lynch too much.

    But as of right now, he's our fifth starter. So I'm not sure why we need to trade him.

    Very tradeable. You'll get back more than we gave up for Montero, for example.

    Two reasons.

    1) We may deem it better for Baez's development for him to work at AAA for awhile, and we don't care about Olt's development because it's over.

    2) Olt might just be a better hitter...

    Three guys have played CF before coming to the Cubs in the last three years, then played it at least 200 innings here:

    I am completely happy to hold on to Wood and Castillo right up to March 31 in case we need them. Injuries happen in the spring.

    Me hating our infield depth is an annual tradition at this point. I don't want Tommy La Stella, Javier Baez, *or* Mike Olt getting PAs early in the year, but I don't see how it's avoidable.

    You can use whatever you want, but I think it's more honest to acknowledge the rather large structural advantages the Cubs' rebuild has had over the Astros'.
