The Cubs have a fascinating and very special opportunity, right now, to trade an underachiever and free up more monies for more deserving players.
What an opportunity exists! Please trade this under-performing "flame out" asap while teams need a SS or a 2Bman.
Building around Barney and Baez can work, and the Cubs then rid themselves of the last malingerer they have from former days.
This trade would cause a lot of optimism. Jed, Theo, are you listening?
