I think that it's a good move by the Cubs. I was hoping that the Dodgers would ante up.

Prospects, especially Cubans are always a crap shoot. Hopefully TheoJed's first draft class is strong, Rizzo pans out, and they can pick up some solid prospects during the trade season coming up here. If thats the case, the Cubs really overhauled their minors in a matter of a few months. You hope that Samardzija can be a solid #3 going forward and maybe Travis Wood can figure out how to become a #5. Need to develop some top of the line starters and maybe go sign an Ace in a few years. They'll likely have the top pick in the 2013 draft and probably pretty high in 2014. I'd say 2014 they'll be on the upswing with 2015 and beyond the years they really start to put it together.
