Baez has "top-shelf bat speed," according to one National League scout who recently saw him play. "I haven't seen that type of bat speed this year outside of the big leagues. It's pure, unadulterated, just violent bat-speed."

Theo in year 2 still can't move Soriano or Marmol to complete his rebuild process. Had to pay Zambrano's / Soto's / Dempster's / Byrd's contracts to dump the players. Now Miami & Boston can reload quicker than the slower process the Cubs are taking.

The approach the Cubs took/are taking is completely different than Miami and Boston tookThe Cubs would rather pay more to get a better prospect.Miami and Boston took less prospects back in order for the other teams to pay more.Another big difference is Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes, and Adrian Gonzalez are all-stars. Meanwhile, Zambrano got regulated to the bullpen, Soto may be released by Texas, and Byrd got suspended and was hitting .100. What in the world did you expect the Cubs would get for those guys? Theo had a deal for Marmol in place for Dan Haren and pulled out of it, so that part is just wrong. Marmol is still expected to be traded this offseason and Soriano has a shot. Do you even believe half the stuff you say?
