Look here, at Carrie Muskat's story on Cubs.com.
Look at the very last line in the story.
The one that says, "Top prospect Javier Baez will start at shortstop for Chicago."
I guess when you're the Cub beat person you develop relationships and you don't want to be impolite.
So when your headline is about Starlin Castro, you save that nugget for the very end.
And no one was more thrilled than me when Starlin Castro hit the double to the wall in right center between the Diamondbacks' outfielders.
In fact someone tweeted something like: "It's early but so far Castro looks like the old Castro."
Made me laugh out loud that as fans we can say such a thing about a 24 year old kid.
But I guess he did look like he used to, and that's good news for us.
On the other hand, looking at that article, that last line is the one that gives me goosebumps.
Other than You Tube movies, I have yet to see Javier Baez play.
He is the top prospect in the system ranked #2 by Baseball Prospectus - a system that they project to be #1 next year.
Javy Baez is the top prospect in the system ranked #2 by Baseball Prospectus - a system they project to be #1 next year.
When you add the words "Chicago Cubs" to that thought, it's...well... my eyes are...it's some kind of trickery.
I'M HAVING AN OUTER BODY EXPERIENCE!
Unicorns are now in my living room sipping Shamrock Shakes and chatting with Mr. Ed and Kate Upton who is not wearing a bikini.
Anyway, I'm a liiiitle bit excited.
