There's a lot of haziness around these facts/allegations.

Supposedly. But it's a weird circumstance.

That deal was eating away at me from the moment it was announced.

Another huge difference between Baez and Springer - their ages.

Bryant is almost a year older than Baez, too.

It's funny how quickly players reverted to the post-30 decline in recent years.

Villanueva played a little 2B in 2012 - any chance he tries to become an IF backup?

It was a core that had had success, but got way too old simultaneously.

In this year's defense, that 1987 team was old as hell.

How much more would Super-2 Baez really cost the Cubs?

I voted "now", because I'd promote him as soon as he starts hitting, Super2 be damned.

Millions of dollars I'm okay with.

Sure. But remember, Baez is 3 years younger than Springer.

No, it could be done today. There's nothing to worry about service-time-wise.

I believe we're already past that.

That is not exactly the most useful thing for the Cubs right now.

I'd be in favor of cutting ties with Barney, regardless of Baez' status.

Does bringing him up now cost a year of control?
Commented on The Cubs Should Call Up Javier Baez... Now on Apr 17 2014, 3:26p - 3 replies
To be fair, Springer is older than Baez - he was a college player - and was killing it at AAA LAST year.
