who does the Cubs want at 3rd base?? Brooks Robinson?? lol. Jim Hendry traded Casey Mcgehee away, we lost Aramiz Rameriz. there has been third basemen we could have signed this off season, Brandon Inge, Jeff Keppinger, Ty Wiggington, Drew Sutton and Mark Reynolds?? who are the Cubs looking for??

Kevin Youkalis was available until the Skankees grabbed him recently. Now there`s a player.

forget about Campana. if he could steal first…

Try Castro at 3rd. Need ss or 2nd base. Barney can play short.

That just opens up a hole at 2B. Ether way we need to find somebody! But, you’re right, if Castro can cut back on his errors by playing third that helps the infield defense because then you have a better fielder at SS in Barney and it may be easier to plug 2B rather than 3B. But I think we will be watching Stewart flounder at 3B.
