This was a terrible trade.



DJ was a worse trade.

Castro was not a player the front office wanted on the 2016 team. I would not want him now. Typical producer of nothing when shit matters most. Take his hot start and put it in perspective he will end up the same lame ass player he has always been. Not missing him at all.

Nas and I were behind Starlin from the beginning when all you motherfuckers were throwing him to the wolves. Or the Yankees.

Theo and Jed are to be appreciated, but they got ripped off on this trade.

Starlin is a goddamn professional hitter.

Starlin is a pudwack.

Starlin would look amazing at 2B right now.

Fucking Theo. :evil:

this was clearly done to make Joe happy. Blame Joe and his flexibility desires.

This is accurate. Zobrist has a knack for handling big situations well and Maddon clearly wanted him as a part of this team. That he was a co-MVP in the World Series seems to indicate Joe was right to want him. it's very likely Zobrist might be past his prime years before his contract expires, but he has already paid off. Castro can really hit, but just as Zobrist has a knack for producing in the clutch, Castro has a knack for striking out and failing to advance runners in situations where advancing a runner, if not scoring him, is crucial. The Cubs want guys who see lots of pitches, work the count and have a high OBP. Castro did not fit in that mold. Neither does Baez right now, but Baez is a special defensive player and may still improve in those areas that need to be upgraded.
