When our kids and grandkids ask us who played third base for the cubs in the two thousand teen years, what are we going to say? We thought it was going to be Josh Vitters, and then he faced major league hitting! The Cubs have traded for Christian Villanueva, then for Mike Olt from the Rangers. In the top twenty prospects for the Cubs they have Jeimer Candelario, another third baseman. Plus they drafted Kris Bryant. Throw in a kid named Jacob Rodgers who is having a solid season at single A Boise, and the cubs have a log jam at third.
Could you imagine the Ian Stewart rant possibility if he was still an Iowa Cub? So who is the 3rd baseman of the Cubs future? Ron Santo must be licking his chops and readjusting his toupee somewhere after seeing all these prospects playing third for the Cubs.
