"shouldn't give up on the season so easily"??? the NL central was a beast division last year. the Cards, Reds, and Pirates were walking away with it early. After 93 games with soriano out there we knew that we were out of it. there was a market for Soriano, and we got a good trade for him. The Reds, Cards and Pirates are still going to be good teams this year. the improvement the cubs need to make is to have bounceback years from castro, rizzo, and Samardzija, (hopefully we sign him to an extension, so all the trade silliness can stop)
IF Samardzija, Wood, Jackson, have improved years, with a bounceback from rizzo, castro, a hitting 2b, and a hitting 3b. thats an improved team with our prospects looking to come up.
Will we get to the playoffs this year. about a 3% chance. but Ithink that what i have seen from this FO is that they will do anything to benefit the big league team. if it means sending soriano, and 17 million to the yankees so we actually get something in return instead of AA depth; excellent
