Re: 2016 Cubs Farm and Prospect Musings

A lot of surprises there. Not so much the players but where they're ranked. I really don't get how Vogelbach is ahead of Almora. Almora is a 21 year old at AA, a potentially elite defenseman, and coming off a huge 2nd half with the bat. Vogelbach's a mediocre season away from AAAA.

Re: Todd Frazier to White Sox in three team deal

The AL is a crap shoot for sure. The White Sox adding one of Cespedes or Gordon would put them firmly in the mix for a playoff spot. Although I'd guess they'd appear to be a bit on the outside of it by the numbers, without looking. They're doing all they can though, they can't just tear down like w...

Re: Minor transactions thread

Safe to say Baez isn't going anywhere anymore. Brendan Ryan was never going to be on the active roster, so it has as much bearing on Baez as releasing Olmos did earlier. Well as of right now the only people capable of playing SS are Baez and Russell. There's also Mendy, so to speak, as well as an e...

Re: Cubs in Winter Leagues

In Theo's world, nothing's valueless . Ok, maybe Edwin Jackson and Jose Veres. But nothing else. Villanueva has always been known as a great glove man, and he has a solid bat. But being out of options and very, very blocked, he's basically an expiring $10 off coupon; if you walk into the store and f...

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

Cardinals are a good organization with good talent, and they'll have a lot of pieces coming back. Having Wainright back, a full season of Piscotty and Grichuk, Molina should be healthy again, Holliday, and some of the money they didn't spend on Heyward or Price will presumably still bring some usef...

Do people still think Casey Kelly is an important prospect? I hope not. I feel like like every year there's reports or people overvaluing him immensely like he's some sort of heralded talent.
