    This team is terrible. I really think we only win 55 games.

    The Cubs HAVE to start spending the money to go out and get some big time players. We NEED a Verlander or a Pujols type player. Castro is good and will be REALLY good at some point, but not in his prime yet.

    No, the Cubs need to develop the talent they have in their system and not rely so much on free agency. They have done this before and it has not panned out. Pujols got his contract, and so far the Angels are not getting much out of him; ARod has never been what the Yankees hoped for, and of course there is Soriano.

    As for Castro, he is playing about as good as he ever will offensively. He needs ALOT of work on defense, and I'm not sure he will ever get there. Kaplin stated yesterday on Miller and Brinson that he thinks they should move him to the outfield, and I'm not so sure I disagree with that.

    Um, yes he will. The kid is still only 22 years old. He's going to develop power over the next couple years.
