Tip of the iceberg as Cubs promote Javier Baez

August 4, 2014

With the promotion today of Javier Baez by the Cubs, the team has taken the rebuilding process out of 2nd gear, and moved it into 3rd gear.

By this time next year the process should be in fifth gear with multiple 1st and 2nd year players, interacting with Rizzo / Castro to give Cub fans their first taste of sugar since Jame Loney fed them coal six years ago.

The Cubs brought up the versatile 22 year old Arismendy Alcantara several weeks ago. Vin Scully couldn’t get over how much range Alcantara was showing at second base, but going forward Vinny is going to have to enjoy him in CF. Javier Baez will be playing second base going forward. Soon, Jorge Solar should be playing RF. By April of 2015, 3rd base will belong to Kris Bryant.

Where does that leave SS Addison Russell the prize of the Jeff Samardzija trade? Theo will find something. They could move Starlin Castro for much needed pitching.

1st – Rizzo

2nd  – Baez

SS – Castro

3rd – Bryant

RF – Soler

CF –  Alcantara

LF – Lake

Which of these highly touted prospects can beat the odds and become a star only time will tell, but for Cub fans, this roller coaster ride might have finally reached the bottom,  as they begin chugging back to the place they were before James Loney so rudely interrupted their ride.

    They’ve got quite the future on offense, and when they start actually winning games they should make a couple trades for SP while they are at it with all of those hitting prospects. Keep Bryant though.
