Brenly didn’t even want the job… give it up!!!!!!!!!!! Sveum is doing the best he can

You can’t polish a turd guys…. the players making the mistakes now will now be here for the future… they are cheap fillers that gave/gives us flexibility to build for the future. The team got blown up what do you expect the result to be? Bad players will make bad mistakes. Did this FO ever promise to be in the race this year? NOPE… They have a plan and will stick to it.

I have seen him play at Peoria…. the guy is amazing. Give him credit on his fielding though because he won’t stay at SS. He will be a good fielder at 3B and 2B. At 2B he won’t be Barney but he will be average to above average fielding wise. Just think of this young infield in 2 or 3 years…. Rizzo, Baez, Castro, and Villaneuva… or Rizzo Castro, Saunders/watkins/lake, and Baez… then you got Soler and Almora in the OF leaving us to spend $$$ at C and the other corner OF spot plus a big $$$ rotation if needed. Future looks fine

Sometimes in camp you’ll be watching 140 players in Cub uniforms — it’s an amazing sight, actually — and one guy in that mob scene simply, silently compels you to watch him. Call it “presence” or some other word, but it happens, even before you see him swing a bat. Then he does swing a bat, you hear the sound, and your suspicions are confirmed. That one player, last spring, was Baez.
