My guess is that he improves in 2019- not so much in fielding or base running- hard to improve on those, but I think his bat will come alive.

I think his defense can be improved, sometimes he doesn't make the routine throws to first base cause he takes his footwork for granted.

It will be interesting to see how he performs if he gets the majority of SS starts in the beginning of the season with Russell's issues.

Unless they sign Tulowiztki or Galvis, Baez IS the Cubs' SS for at least the first month of 2019.

Tulo and Baez would be a good combination. What do you guys think?

For $600k and not having to see Russell, I think he's a wonderful choice. Gives them leadership depth and a versatile guy for pennies on the dollar compared to Machado or even Galvis.

600K is literally the minimum so to get a veteran who might have a comeback season, would be worth the risk for just about any team as long as they have a roster spot.

Cubs' 40-man was at 37 when I looked yesterday, an that included Descalso.

Worth the risk then to get Tulo. I like saying the word Tulo anyways.

Yeah, sounds like some sort of exotic player, flower or drink. I'll have a Tulo on the rocks...

A 'Yu' is a bitter expensive drink that disappoints you and gives everyone a migraine. Hopefully, it will be better tasting for the Cubs this season.

Yes, and the Morrow also hits you to-Morrow.

The 'Happ' is a drink that makes you 'strike out' when you are at the club or bar.

And the "El Mago" gives you mojo to pick up the women... Just don't mo-Lester.
