Aloha Folks- well, the good “problems” this organization faces in the near future! What do you do with a Contreras that is showing he is almost ready, bat-wise to be up now and we have all heard about his play behind the plate! He is hitting .329/8hr’s/30rbi’s in 43 games! Crazy, I just also read that he has been in the Cubs system since he was 17 and now is 24yrs old. I am sure Joe will love him because he can play other positions too. So, next year when Schwarber comes back we could see 3-backstops again on the roster: Montero/Schwarber/Contreras. I hope the organization retains Ross somehow because his mentoring is invaluable for the growth of these young men. Mahalo!

cubs need to bring up minor league catcher contreras who is looking awesome … montero looked absolutely horrible last night…contreras could be that spark plug to put us in world series…please give him a shot …lets go cubs world series or bust…

With Montero and his back issues and not playing well, I think its time to DL him and bring in Contreras. That way he can get more work with Ross. Contreras is a stud in triple A.
