    What does "top" mean?

    I would want the Cubs to get back Bauer, Skaggs, and a couple others before I even think about trading Castro. And I highly doubt the D-Backs would ever do that.

    Only if the Cubs allow Yankees to throw in Cano.

    I can't tell if you are serious? There is so much more that goes into a short stop than the number of hits they get

    I was briefly intrigued when I saw 3b in his playing history, but he's beyond awful there and really can't do anything other than DH, 1b or LF.
    If we were to acquire Tank then play him a few games at 3b or platoon in RF w Schierholtz. We had Sosa all those years in RF, am sure Tank is not that bad in RF as Sosa was. Until Soriano is traded then he plays LF. Like some one posted this guy has ton of power, I sacrifice some Defense to get his bat in the lineup.

    I find it difficult to believe the Cubs didn't have an offer, at the very least, in the ballpark of the one McCarthy signed. I'm guessing when your team is so awful you're going to have to overpay to get any decent non-reclamation project FAs. And that's the situation we're in right now.

    If you are referring to my post about him it was complete sarcasm. It's just what hawk said about 50% of the white sox hitters..one being him

    My question is why do the Dbacks need McCarthy with their SP depth?! Good Lord they have a stout staff.

    Kennedy, Cahill, Corbin, Skaggs, Miley, McCarthy, Hudson(relatively soon), then Bauer and Anderson not far off. Must be nice.

    Don't forget about Archie Bradley in a couple years. They have to trade at least 2 of these guys. I'd guess one of Bauer and Skaggs for an impact player and Corbin or Hudson.

    Sosa was a good RF.

    Why don't the Royals just trade some of their young bats for some of the D-Backs pitching and call it a day?

    tulo and andrus are only ss you can argue to be better than starlin. hits matter a lot... its kinda the most important stat. offensively. it factors into every stat outside of walks. unless you go really advance stats on me like ...

    glove re-velcroing rate / eye blinks per sec X jersey tightness / hat proximity to sun = a slow winter

    yea when you have a player in the top 3rd of the league 3 years in a row. You start talking about him be a top player. Not talking about a player who is still only 23 (in march) where guys ahead of him are nearly 10 years his senior. Castro can be Elite bat at a spot where Elite bats aren't common.

    Fan graphs WAR disagrees with you.

    Edit: I just noticed the bolded part in your response. Ha
