Although, I think the Cubs front office messed up calling Jackson up as soon as they did. Now Vitters may be a bust. I feel like he's been in their system for ten years now anyways. As someone already noted, until they have frontline starting pitching they're not going anywhere.
I still cannot believe how easily the Cubs got Rizzo from the Padres. We should make a trade like that. Andrew Cashner? Really? Probably the Hoyer-Padres connection.
I don't know about Jackson(big contact and K issues), but I would be more excited about Almora and Javier Baez. But the pitching in their system is not very good. It looks like their plan is to build the offense up and probably sign veteran pitchers to build their staff once they are closer.
