DateQuestionAnswer
2015-10-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)If this Cubs team wins the WS and all the main contributors in the regular season show up big in the post season run, how many statues are put up in front of Wrigley and who are they of?
(Lucas from Philadelphia)
They all get statues. To get into Wrigley you will have to climb over statues of Clayton Richard, Jonathan Herrera and Chris Denorfia. (Sahadev Sharma)
2015-06-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see Javier Baez fitting in the Cubs infield, they seem to be set?
(joncarmela11 from Detroit )
Right now I don't see a good fit at all. It is possible that they bring him up as a utility guy, to do what they wanted Alcantara to do and play a lot of positions and not be a starter. They could also push Bryant to left field and put Baez at third, but if Kyle Schwarber is going to be up in mid-August that wouldn't really fly either. I think they could find a place for Baez (Jonathan Herrera isn't a fixture by any means) but there are no guarantees. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Javier Baez has looked much better in AAA as of late. Do you think he gets the call soon? Do you believe the speculation that he may be used as the DH when they play in AL parks next week? Also, if Kris Bryant playing in LF tonight a sign a call-up may be soon, does it have to do with Soler being out and needing another body in the OF?
(Shawn from Cubicle)
I feel like we were having this same discussion RE Baez last year...In order: I think it happens soon but I think it also happens after a trade. I think it's a possibility but I wouldn't yo-yo the player like that and he actually has defensive value. Bryant in LF was for Soler who has a sore ankle and well, to get Jonathan Herrera at bats which _(ツ)_/ (Mauricio Rubio)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where would you rank Allen Craig amongst NL 2B once he gets eligibility?
(KD from Loop)
Depends how much they play Schumaker. If the PT gets split relatively evenly, he's probably somewhere in the middle, ahead of guys like Daniel Murphy and Jonathan Herrera, maybe in line with a guy like Darwin Barney. It really depends on the PT, though. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)When do I make it up?
(Eric Young from Colorado)
The Jonathan Herrera hype is either dying or dead, depending on your point of view and the Rockies are using Alfredo Amezaga some days at second. Anytime now, really, unless the Rockies are waiting for your Super Two date to pass. (R.J. Anderson)
