Cub Tracks Clamors For More Baez

First of many? - Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

With Starlin Castro sidelined, the calls for "MORE BAEZ" are getting even louder. He and the other prospects are trying to be patient while showing good attitudes. Meanwhile, Dale Sveum has no regrets, Mike Olt wants a shot, and we remember Harry.

I dislike the Oscars and other big award shows. Why? Because sports writers think they are witty when they do show tie-ins.

  • A "new" pitcher may be entering the conversation near the top of the 2014 draft board. The problem I see is an extra letter in that first name.
  • The Cubs struggled seemingly forever to find a third baseman. Now the future of the position looks good.
  • One of the best traits the Cubs' big prospects are showing is patience.

Miscellaneous

  • A little ways down in this Fangraphs notes column, Jason McLeod talks about "missing" on Javier Baez when he was with the Padres.
  • Apparently, at least according to a Kansas City TV station, the Cubs didn't lose to the Royals on Sunday after all.
  • Note from Al: SB Nation support says this should hopefully clear up the issues people are having about not staying logged in on phones: "Go into preferences and reset your cookies and cache and make sure "do not track" is not on as we require some cookies for the login. Restart your phone and see if it works." Please let me and SBN know if this works.
