Im for letting Corey play for a week and see what happens .Could
be a surprise. Whats any body think
i also say let the kid play.he's needs to gain confidence
This kid is going to be GREAT. And I do mean GREAT. However, as Cub fans we need to be patient. Corey is going to be a Cub for a very long time, and is going to be extremely impressive for a very long time. The kid is a ROOKIE!!!! I guarantee that this kid is going to be a perenial .315/30/60(maybe more) hitter with close to 40 stolen bases a year. GUARANTEED.
I think the biggest mistake Baylor is making right now is not playing him every day. Let him learn on the field, playing next to Sammy, soaking it all in. Besides, it's not like we're sitting Griffrey to let this kid get his starts. Maybe it's just me, but my heart doesn't skip a beat if Matthews or Tucker isn't in the lineup. I honestly think Corey is the best center fielder we have. So Don, if you're reading this, PLAY HIM.
Fine Pete, but then who do you play? In the heat of a pennant race, I'll take Corey over ANY of the CF we have now.
Can you say Mark Grace in '89?
Anyone heard fresh news of No.1 pick/prospect?
Mark Grace wasn't a rookie in 1989.
Amen and then some!! Corey maybe a rookie, but he has come through more than anybody else we put in CF. How else can a rookie become a good veteran than to let him play and develop. I think he would be a good compliment to Sammy if Baylor will only let him play more often. We need the bats and we have one.....so play him DB why go looking outside of our house?!
Oh yeah, and as far as Zuleta goes, he should have never been sent down!!! Bring him back and send either Hundley back or GM Jr.
GO CUBS 2001!!!!!!!!!!!
They are playing him for experience. I dont think he will go back down to the minors. he doesnt need to play everyday but he needs good playing time. If we keep it up and win the division it will be great give this kid a taste of winning and he and Sosa will tear it up for the next several years!
