    Cubs Open Prospect Pipeline
The Chicago Cubs have recalled slugging infielder Javier Baez from Triple-A Iowa. The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the top five prospects in baseball and his big league arrival serves as the dawn of a new era of Cubs baseball. The rookie’s sudden arrival breathes life into another moribund season in Wrigleyville.
The Cubs’ front office has been pointing to the 2015 season as a target date for fielding a competitive team. The promotion of Baez is the first legitimate sign that such talk is more than just lip service. Baez will join the recently promoted Arismendy Alcantara and young All Stars Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro to give Chicago a solid foundation.

    The Fickle Fandom of a First Grader
As a Miami Heat fan since 1989, the team’s recent LeBron James-fueled run of success was tremendously entertaining. As my interest in the nearly unwatchable NFL waned over the past few years I found myself following more and more pro basketball. I passed the interest onto my kids with the help of the NBA’s Gametime app. My son and daughter, ages seven and four, know two things about basketball: 1) they root for the Heat and 2) LeBron James is the best player in the world.
Miami’s sad performance in this summer’s NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs brought an abrupt end to another rewarding season. I chalked up the failure to the Spurs’ hot shooting and the ineffectiveness of Dwyane Wade. There was reason for optimism as just last summer Manu Ginobili fell flat in the Finals only to bounce back 12 months later to exact his revenge. Why couldn’t Wade take the same path? I figured the team would be right back in contention next season just as soon as Wade, James, and Chris Bosh signed new long-term contracts.

    Orioles Contend Despite Woeful Infield
Last season the Orioles rode a power-hitting infield (that featured four All Stars) into season-long contention, with the quartet of Chris Davis, Matt Wieters, Manny Machado, and JJ Hardy accounting for a staggering 267 extra base hits. The 2013 Orioles were ultimately undone by their lack of quality starting pitching as the team fell out of the Wild Card race in the season’s final week. The Orioles are contending once again, a third straight winning season could be in the works, despite receiving just a fraction of last season’s production from the infield that was praised just a few months ago.

After being run out of the gym by the San Antonio Spurs the Heat are at risk of losing James to free agency and dealing with the reality of Wade’s diminished abilities.
