!!!* Does something like Almora, Happ, Amaya, De la Cruz, Lange, and Little get the Cubs Syndergaard and Lugo?* DeGrom and Lugo? * I don't think the Mets trade Syndergaard From today's Tribune: And the Cubs appear firm in their unwillingness to move any position players from their major-league rost...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

July 14: Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard would be the prizes of the starting pitching market if the Mets decided to trade either of their two aces. So it's no surprise that Syndergaard was being heavily scouted on his return from the disabled list Friday at Citi Field. On hand to watch the flamet...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-13-18

Jorge Remon threw 4 no hit innings for a DSL Cubs squad today. The most notable thing about him so far is that he's the second youngest pitcher on the team and leads in IP.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-11-18

Jonathan Bruzual is a weird potential prospect. As a pro he's thrown 50 innings and has 52 Ks. That's good. He's given up 54 walks. That's bad. He's also not given up a HR. That's good. He's also allowed 50 runs. That's bad. I'm most impressed he hasn't blown out his arm or given up more than the 9 ...

Re: Minor League Predictions Thread

- Ademan shows the same skills he showed last year - contact, surprising power, defense, patience, some baserunning - but is more periphs than outright. He sees a little bit of AA at the very end or if the Smokies make the playoffs. Yeah, more or less on track. - Lange sees an uptick in velocity, t...

Bases clearing double for Nelson Velazquez

Luis Vazquez hit his second HR. He's been lowkey solid in Eugene even before that by making contact with a .147 IsoSLG as an 18 YO SS.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-11-18

I'm kind of a fan of Pedro Martinez. 17 yo SS playing on DSL 2. Leads the team in PA, so the Cubs want to get him experience. He's hitting .342/.430/.432/.862 with 11.5 BB% and 10.0 k% plus 22 steals coming into today. In the doubleheader today he went 3-7 with a double and a walk, with no k's. Plu...

DSL nonsense... Fabian Pertuz is hitting .333/.464/.425 with more walks than Ks to go with his ~12% K rate. He's also stolen 16 bases, including 2 today, and plays SS. Josue Fernandez hit his second pro HR but also struck out 4 times in a doubleheader. Luis Rodriguez has allowed just 12 hits, includ...

Re: 2018 Mid Season Top 20

1 - Alzolay 2 - Ademan - This is less a knock on Amaya and more trusting that it’s easier to develop a MIF prospect than a C prospect whose fallback is 1B. Ademan's maintaining while on possibly the toughest assignment on the farm as a 19 YO SS in High A. 3 - Hoerner 4 - Amaya 5 - Short - He’s a SS ...

On Little:

You have to think this is the guy Theo envisioned when drafting him. No doubt Theo saw a guy capable of dominating full season hitters and on this day Little did just that.

Nelson Velazquez is hitting first and playing CF for the Emeralds.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-8-18

Ademan had an active day today going 2/4 with a couple walks, the game tying RBI, and the potential game winning run scored. A HR or three would really nice, but the Hope he may one day believe in his full potential survives another day.

Anyone want to cop to suggesting he be traded at any point over the past 3+ seasons/off-seasons? Oh yeah, many times over even once this past week OTOH 2B is his and I caught much guff for suggesting 2B as his long term spot on the Cubs as a prospect, so it balances out! I even comped him to Sorian...
