  • When links are bleak, you link to Paul Sullivan. The former beat writer thinks Starlin Castro's head is at the heart of his struggles.

Miscellaneous

  • Our friends at SBN's "Fake Teams" have a thorough prospect breakdown. This comes from a fantasy baseball perspective, but it definitely gives you some insights into the Cub prospects.
  • This was listed last week in one of Josh's MLB Bullets columns. But Baseball Prospectus tossed out some potential trades for Angels' superstar Mike Trout. Their idea for the Cubs: Trout and an add-on piece in exchange for Jeff Samardzija, Javier Baez, either Albert Almora or Jorge Soler, Dan Vogelbach, and another add-on. Do any Cub fans say no?

Today's food for thought

  • Scientists finally know who created some cool Amazonian web towers.
  • Other scientists say dinosaurs can't be revived using their own DNA. But, they think they might be able to do so by de-evolving birds.
