  • 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.


  • 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.
