In a lost season, it doesn't make much sense to not play Watkins if only to see what he may be capable of.

I watched him plenty in Iowa he's not capable of much.

You better Dance, you better live, you better love with a sweet romance. While you still have the chance, I think you better Dance.

Eh, it's clear that the Cubs don't see much in him.  Now, this means he will go elsewhere this winter, get a starting gig on a bum team and have a helluva April and the wailing over him will intensify while noone notices him being out of baseball by the end of May 2015.

It's funny I didn't get the same impression.

I thought it was interesting that neither JD or Lenny really mentioned Watkins yesterday even though he had 3 hits and saved a run in the field. Not a single mention in the (ridiculous) 10th Inning "show".
