    This will be a big year in determining what the Cubs have in Szczur.
    Up until a couple of years ago his focus was mainly on football and half of his year or more baseball was on the back burner. He's a little behind the curve so it's hard to project what he'll be or if he'll be anything since he's still pretty much learning the game and can't get by with just his pure athleticism as much as he could have in football.
    With 2+ years of baseball only under his belt he should be ready to make some real progress this season

    Szczur is a solid prospect, but he underachieves. Yet, I've seen people say this repeatedly "still learning the game?" This post isn't aimed at any single poster, but...

    That's a terrible excuse. How many great baseball players played multiple sports growing up? Almost all of them. He should know the game by now. Granted, he can get better by single mindedly focusing on something, but this "still learning the game" excuse is being overplayed and overemphasized.

    Awesome extension for the DBacks. More than likely, Prado will outplay that money in a market where third baseman are dwindling. Well done.

    Wow that's a solid deal for the D'Backs. Towers probably bumbled into, amirite!?!?

    Anyone have any ideas about Lohse? How you feel about Bourn?

    That would be a solid deal if they didn't have to give up Upton to give it to him.

    I actually did think Towers was pretty good at his job in Arizona until this year. I just think he's really erratic.

    1) Legit shot he gets more in FA.

    2) Legit shot one of the 29 other teams outbids for him.

    Upton's good, really good evenc but I think I'm starting to understand the people who considered him a little overrated.

    After that extension I rather like the Upton deal for both sides. I still have no idea what Towers was thinking with Didi, but the most recent trade wasn't a bad one.

    The fit is legit, but but but so sick of rumors.

    All that explaining I did and still no idea? I am insulted. Maybe it wasn't you that I had the debate with...

    Wasn't me Gato, though I did read most of your back and forth. The ceiling on Bauer is just too significant to give up on it for a guy who likely never reaches .700 OPS as a professional even if he is a strong defensive shortstop. Regardless, we should avoid turning this into another one of those debates.

    Embrace the rumors Gato they make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside when they come to fruition.
