Do you think this could benefit the Cubs?
With September 1 approaching, I am thinking about the Cubs' possible call ups. I know there was a post about this earlier, but I have a different name to suggest.
Some guys who will be called up are pretty obvious (Atkins, Berg, Scales, etc), but a name no one has brought up is Brad Snyder. I read about people suggesting Vitters or Castro and other future Cubs stars(hopefully) being called up, but dismissed as the Cubs likely don't want to start their arbitration clock yet. Snyder, I feel, is different. He is already 27 years old, so is getting too old to be a true "prospect." He can play all 3 OF positions, but mainly plays RF in Iowa, and he bats left-handed. I realize he has just come back from a broken wrist, but if over the next month he shows that he can get back into the form he was previous to his injury (he was easily the second best hitter on the team at that time, behind only Jake Fox), does he warrant an addition to the 40 man roster? What do you guys think?
