    Sources tell me not done on adding starters. Cubs will head to Nashville looking to add another starter and a RF. Third base tough to fill.
    Does that mean DeJesus is moving to center?

    It fits the Choo rumor we have been hearing.

    My bet is Masterson/Jimenez and Choo will be heading to Chicago soon.

    Why do we like Masterson so much?

    He's not a kid anymore, he was never an elite prospect even when he was younger, and outside of 2011 he has back-end starter basically engraved on his forehead.

    I'm all for Choo. And I don't have any reservations with Chisenhall either since we're so hard up for 3B help. Just don't see the excitement with Masterson.

    Good velocity, great groundball guy. Teams try to load up on lefties against him, and we have one of the best defensive right sides of the infield in baseball.

    Ehhhh...

    If that's the best reasoning we can come up with, especially considering how actively Barney is reportedly being shopped, I think I'd rather just go for Ubaldo and hope he can dig up any of what he had for 4+ consecutive seasons that he's only 2 years removed from. He's still only 28 so logic would dictate all that stuff is still buried in there somewhere.

    Masterson has top end stuff minus the results. I would take either one of the two.

    Welcome Tyler Kolek or Brady Aiken or Carlos Rodon if not one of them say hello To Alex Jackson.

    Maybe you should look at the stats. I've already compared the two in previous posts before but you probably know more than me because I bet you're super smart.

    There's really nothing about Ubaldo that appeals to me. It's easy to keep hitters off balance with a 100 MPH fastball and good secondary stuff, so I get how he was effective in Colorado (without a jaw dropping K/9, btw). He's lost 5 MPH though. He's not what he was in Colorado, and probably never will be. I'd only be OK with him if the staff is confident he can get that velocity back. Because this current version of Ubaldo sucks.

    Masterson put up 4.6 WAR two seasons ago. He's huge, has much better stuff than 2012 Ubaldo Jimenez, and his trade value is as low as it's gonna get after last season. I don't know about giving some of the packages that Gato suggested, but there's plenty of value to be had there. He strikes me as a Garza type. Get a really talented AL pitcher into the NL central and let him rebuild his value. I'd much, MUCH prefer him to Ubaldo, all things equal.

    I'd also be curious to see what the yankees want for brett gardner

    Comparable stats, maybe. Comparable stuff? Absolutely not. Masterson has considerably more potential so it's not fair to call them similar.
