The beginning of what?

Baez is gonna hit 30 homers a year - but he's also going to strikeout a ridiculous amount, while playing meh defense. Think Pedro Alvarez or Mark Reynolds.

Next Cubs to be Traded?

Jeff Russell is a lock to be traded. Wesley Wright, Nate Schierholtz, Justin Ruggiano, Darwin Barney, Pedro Strop and Carlos Villanueva are strong possibilities, too.

While Bryant remains an exciting piece to the Cubs' future, I believe the Cubs will wait until mid-April or mid-June of the 2015 season, before calling Bryant up.

My money is on Jason Hammel. Darwin Barney comes in at a close second.

Greg Maddux was a rarity when became a free agent at 27-years-old, but that's still 2-years-older than Tanaka is.

Who should we spend money on, if not Tanaka?
