If you ran the Cubs…

This is a relatively short post but I thought I’d ask for opinions and to see how many of you folks decide to use our poll and comment functions.

We’ve seen tons of very passionate opinions on what the Cubs should do (or should have done) over the years since they were last in the postseason, and if you need a Cliffs Notes version, we have a couple of posts you can read.  The first is about what would happen if Mark Cuban owned the Cubs.  The second is just a silly Choose Your Own Adventure scenario.  But even if you don’t read those, you are all intelligent fans and can answer this simple question…

If you ran the Cubs, what would you do?

  1. What Jed and Theo and co. are doing? Why? Because, despite a few snafus, it seems to be working. Yes, there are more pieces to get in place, and a few other things to be worked out, but a strong core is in place. The one thing I would differ on, ok two things are pitching and Sveum as manager. In pitching, lets face it, we suck. On the current staff, I keep Jeff S., T. Wood, Russell, and possibly Garza, though we know he will be traded to the first taker. There are also a few definite maybes in there, but that’s who I start with at least. There needs to be more of an emphasis on getting quality starting and relief pitching. With Dale, my big problem with him last year is the same one he has this year, and that is when to take a struggling pitcher out. It cost us games last year and this year. I know he wants to show faith in his pitchers, but sometimes, enough is enough is enough. Time to sit down! So he needs to fix that or be gone!

  2. I like what the Cubs are doing, but Im crazy about drafting and prospects and talent finding. I don’t really like drafting college players unless they can run through the Minors. The reason is Highschoolers are young and If they make the bigs they are younger and you will have a longer career with them, rather than a college player. .I would love to draft all the High school power arms in the 1st round – 15th round. At least a couple of them would pan out.
