    I hear they're getting Kershaw, Greinke, and cash considerations...

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Best tweet I've seen so far says the Cubs trade Darwin Barney for a player to be named later, which most likely will be Darwin Barney after the Dodgers realize he's Darwin Barney

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    I saw the Icubs last week for the first time this year. Holy smokes is there some infield talent. Not only offensively but they had some nice defensive plays, were running the bases hard, etc.
    Brad Penny (remember him?) was pitching for New Orleans and was severely getting lit up: 4 and 2/3's, 8 hits, 8 runs.

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    A catcher? Interesting.
    I thought Bonifacio would have been a nice utility guy to have around, but they've got something planned.

    A little surprised that it's a single A level prospect for those two players (and cash)

    Only 10% of single A players make it the show for even a short period of time.

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    I think just about every player plays in Single A.

    My thoughts on the trade:

    Good contact hitter
    He's 20
    Defensively, a little weak
    Will make an alright backup
    2nd round pick in 2013 (Pretty high)

    Catchers from the MLB all the way to the rookie league are extremely weak because the majority of good hitting catchers are getting moved to the outfield (see Bryce Harper.) That being said, this guy is a good CATCHER for what the position has turned into for the MLB.

    In fact, in MLB's prospect watch, only 3 of the top 10 catching prospects are hitting over .300 (one being Schwarber)

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Also, just did some research.

    The "A" level he is playing at right now is Kane County (was Peoria) for the Cubs.

    Players the last three years that have played for Kane County:

    2014
    Kyle Schwarber (C/OF)
    Gerardo Concepcion (P)
    Pierce Johnson (P)
    Jen-Ho Tseng (P)
    Duane Underwood (P)

    2013
    Albert Almora (OF)
    Dan Vogelbach (1B)
    Dillon Maples (P)

    2012
    Javier Baez (INF)
    Jorge Soler (OF)

    Only prospect name you are probably curious about is Kris Bryant. He actually played below this level (A -) and tore it up, so he skipped this level and went to A +

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    As standalone pieces Russell and Bonifacio didn't have enough to net a player of much value at all. Together and with $1 million in cash that the cubs are sending as well you are able to get a legitimate switch hitting catcher prospect. Caratini was the #7 prospect in the braves system per mlb.com.

    For some perspective if you follow cubs prospects closely, mlb.com has already updated the cubs top 20 prospects. Caratini comes in at #13 just behind Pierce Johnson and Dan Vogelbach and just ahead of Jeimer Candelario, Eloy Jimenez and Jen-ho Tseng. So he's definitely a legitimate prospect. #13 in the best system in all of baseball is pretty strong.


    ALL IN

    Did you expect a trade to put us over the top in a miraculous run to 4th place?
