Monday was a big night for a potential future stud Chicago Cubs shortstop, as top prospect Javier Baez bashed four home runs in a 9-6 win for Class A Daytona over Fort Myers, becoming only the second Florida State League player in 94 years to hit four home runs in one game (Ryan Harvey in 2006). Alas, Baez, the organization’s top pick in 2011, is only 20 years old and probably years away from starring at Wrigley Field, but it hasn’t stopped Cubs fans from longing for his eventual promotion, because so many seem fed up with the current option.

In other news Monday night, current Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, all of 23 years old and already boasting nearly 600 career hits and a few All-Star game appearances, was booed while going 1-for-4 and hitting seventh in a foggy 6-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. He has four hits in his past 42 at-bats.
