Way Too Early Look at 2014 Cubs

Well, the Cubs didn't trade anyone today. With DeJesus and Schierholtz in the fold for 2014 (though either could be traded in the offseason, I really doubt it), the Cubs 2014 roster (with no signings) looks like this:

C: Welington Castillo
1B: Anthony Rizzo
2B: Darwin Barney
SS: Starlin Castro
3B: Mike Olt
LF: Junior Lake
CF: David DeJesus
RF: Nate Schierholtz
2B/CF: Logan Watkins
3B/SS: Luis Valbuena
4OF: Dave Sappelt
5OF: Julio Borbon
2C: (none) (Chad Noble? Luis Flores? J.C. Boscan?)

#1: Jeff Samardzija
#2: Edwin Jackson
#3: Travis Wood
#4: Justin Grimm
#5: Jake Arrieta
Swing: Carlos Villanueva
LOOGY: James Russell
LR: Michael Bowden
MR: Blake Parker
MR: Chang-Yong Lim
SU: Brian Schlitter
CL: Pedro Strop

I called up Olt and Watkins because they make sense for next year. The Cubs obvious places to improve in the offseason would be LF, backup C, and another SP and probably 2 RP.
