Too early for Starlin?

Its obvious the Cubs tendencies have not changed since last year. They like to not hit and fail to drive runners. Its only sixteen games in and I don't want to jump the gun to early and say we are done because we are far from done but its clear the Cubs need a spark plug someone who can get the offense going. It's to bad we don't have the 2003 version of Mark Grudzielanek or the Mark Derosa of 2008. Could Starlin be that spark plug right now? At, 20 is it to young to call up Starlin for the gamble he could spark the offense? I say give them another week to attempt to hit and then if things haven't improved bring this kid up and give it a shot. The window of opportunity for this core to go to the playoffs is less and less each year. I think this is the last season to take a stab to get there with this core. The front of the lineup starts everything and I think Starlin could spark that a little bit. I want to know what you guys think.
