Interesting take on Castro call-up

The author here feels that the Castro call-up isn't much of an improvement over Theriot and Baker/Fontenot unless he exceeds expectations. This is purely a sabermetric view: However this is portrayed by people, the Cubs did not call up Castro on a whim. Whether the thinking behind the move is misguided will be a consistent point of discussion during Castro’s tenure on the north side, and it will begin with the wins and losses this team sees as a result of their middle infield play this season. If Castro doesn’t have a .330 wOBA and +5 UZR/150 defense, then I really can’t justify what Jim Hendry is trying to do here. As I said, the benchmark has been set.

Theriot the Terrible? Theriot has made a name for himself as a hard-working, humble guy who's willing to do whatever it takes to help his team win. This year, things have changed. Do Bobby Scales, Mike Fontenot, Micah Hoffpauir and Len Kasper like the new "power hitting" Theriot?

Ron Santo when Mike Fontenot came up in the 10th. I've never heard that nickname anywhere else than here. Has Ronny been reading BCB?

Juan Uribe???

My friend called and we were talking.  He mentioned that on AM1000 there was talks about the Cubs being interested in Uribe as a back up to SS, 2B and 3B.  If my memory is correct he does have...
