Pitching is on the way. Still a couple years away, but coming soon.

we have great pitching right now… and I don’t see many of these arms as anything more than bullpen help or 4th or 5th starters…

It could get real interesting with the improvement of Baez’s offense. Will he be called up in time for a possible play off roster spot? If so, who will go? Herrera? The Cubs may be better off letting this current team that has gotten this far either make or break our playoff run. It would be a tough call to lose Herrera due to a Baez call up and for Coghlan to lose playing time. Maybe just a September call up for Baez and allow him to help the team, get some more major league experience but not upset the current team as much? Some tough decisions for the FO to make soon regarding both Baez and LaStella. A “so far, so good” train of thought might be the way to go and leave them both in the minor leagues.

Why not a Baez/Coghlan platoon at 2B? At this point the Baez bat against LF Pitching would be much more intimidating than Castro.

Nice. Not to mention from what I read Maddon loves Baez’s defense. And if any manager can make this work it is Maddon. Plus, it may help Baez get re-acquainted with the major leagues sans the pressure he had during his initial call up. Nice, Jasper.
