Angry OK CAN WE BRING UP CASTRO NOW

We see that they suck now. Fontetno needs to be on the bench and The Riot moved to second.

Soriano had his streak so move Colvin in there.

If you can't produce runs against this piss poor Pirates pitching then you aint gonna.

What you don't want to see any more fancy-dancy spin throws to first ?

It looks like someone who is too cool for school and wanted to make a cool looking play instead of the boring set and throw that works. Just like a cool hop and catch looks great on ESPN highlights.

It doesn't make sense to bring him up unil the middle of June at the earliest

1) There may be alot of movement in the minors after the draft anyway

2) The cubs will save a few years of arbitration and free agency.

3) He probably won't be a significant improvement over the three current MIF in the short-term anyway

Ditto Ditto Ditto . We are not one middle infielder away from a division championship.

I do too, but I don't want the team to make rash decisions based on what the fanbase wants.

It's worth it to wait IMO.

Plus , Lou is now managing for reputation salvation and now would be the worst time to bring up a high prospect.

Exactly, there's hardly enough at-bats to go around right now.

The only move that really makes any sense right now is cut Tracy and call up Scales.

Then keep playing Ram ?

With the desperation Lou has been showing , I will not be surprised to see him bench Ram and start Tracy for a couple weeks. That is if ram doesn't get another hit in this series.

You know , where the hell was this two years ago ? I thought that was what we were suppose to get when we hired him ?

And everything you guys suggest is exactly the problem. This club in its current configuration is at the end of its cycle. The window is closed. Now Ricketts must choose on what direction this team will go next year.

Make no mistake Lou will be gone and hopfully Hendry to. It will also be time to move some of these no trade contracts starting with Zambrano.

I think this team will look totally different at the end of this yr, at least I hope so because I really can't watch this crap anymore
