    Re: Cubs call up Jackson and Vitters

    Sounds like Jeff Baker was just traded.


    I removed it.

    Twitter.

    Baker traded to Tigers for two players to be named later.

    Re: Cubs call up Jackson and Vitters

    So do you think this means valbuena is relegated to bench duty?

    Re: Cubs call up Jackson and Vitters

    I'm excited to see them play. They are probably going to struggle a lot at times but I'd rather see them play than Valbuena and LaHair.

    Why would LaHair come out of the lineup?

    Re: Cubs call up Jackson and Vitters

    Lahair can't hit LHP so hes going to be a platoon. I expect Valbuena to be a bench player/defensive replacement. He may get a few starts at 2nd as well to see what he could do there in case the cubs choose to trade barney in the offseason

    Because he's terrible. I don't know who else they'd take out.

    Re: Cubs call up Jackson and Vitters

    Might as well call them up and give them some MLB experience. Will be interesting to see how they handle it.
