Re: 2020-21 Offseason Top Prospects Lists

Listened to Callis. He compared Santana to Howard. Viewed Mena as the Cubs best CF prospect, Preciada as our best 3B prospect. Comped Caissie to Larry Walker, and said a year from now, it's possible he might be our best OF prospect. Then did the usual Christian Hernandez to Alex Rodrigues comp. Oof...

Re: Minor League Musings

AZPhil is saying he's talked to some scouts outside of the Padres or Cubs organizations who are also really high on Preciado and have him ranked above Howard. I'm thinking it's more to do with them being waaaaaaay too low on Howard than being enamored with Preciado, but interesting to note nonethele...

Re: Minor League Musings

It will be interesting to see how they divvy up the SS reps in the former AZL. Preciado/Made/Morel are all there. Would also like to see Pinango make the jump to full season ball, but that's probably pushing it. Rafael Morel probably won't be a SS for long. While his brother's limited offensively t...

So no Padre top 10 prospects pre-Snell trade.


This a horsefeathering terrible return. The Hoyer era starts not with a bang, but a big wet fart noise.

Re: International Free Agency Thread, 1/15/2021 Class

We only have approximate dollar amounts on the 50 biggest bonuses already agreed upon so this information is incomplete but based on that, it appears the Cubs can’t hang with the 6 other teams. The other 6 all have way more than $1 million in bonus space while the Cubs have approximately $650k-$1 m...

Looks like Sam Thoresen, a junior RHP from U of Minnesota, signed. https://twitter.com/SamThoresen/status/1272367084094308352 Looks like another one of the big stuff, terrible command/control types that have been added to the system. Get that arm in the pitching lab and see if something can be done.
