Re: Offseason Top Prospect Lists

BA Chat: Dan (Chicago): I’m confused about Miguel Amaya being left out of the top 100 (and the just missed list). He was the youngest qualified position player in his league, played at the most demanding position, in a pitchers league, had great underlying metrics (K%, BB%, ISO), and a 122 wRC+. Wh...

Players We Believe Could Make The 2021 Top 100 : Miguel Amaya, C, Cubs: A steadily productive hitter with straightaway power whose offense has been muted by pitchers’ parks in South Bend and Myrtle Beach. Amaya is still very young, and getting away from pitcher-friendly environments could give him ...

Re: Offseason Top Prospect Lists

That's pretty cool to have 3 top 100 prospects but I'm shocked that Amaya isn't there. He'd have to have just missed right? Amaya and Roederer each made BA's top 198: https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/notable-mlb-prospects-who-missed-the-2020-top-100/ Baseball America's editors compile indivi...

Re: Offseason Top Prospect Lists

https://twitter.com/MDGonzales/statuses/1220009177847754752 So the Cubs have two top 50 prospects, but as recently as August had the worst farm system in baseball? Also.

Offseason Top Prospect Lists

BA has their Cubs' top 10 list coming out on 12/2. BP has theirs coming out on 1/7.

We usually have a specific thread each year so let's try to toss all of them in here.

Re: sometimes deck chairs need to be rearranged

McLeod's still the defacto #3, that new title's fancy. I wouldn't be surprised if his promotion was Harris' cue that the Cubs see McLeod as a GM or higher candidate post-Theo Based on what happened this offseason and everything that's available on Scott Harris, he had clearly jumped ahead of McLeod...

Re: Minor League Musings

I'm really excited by the catching pipeline as well. I tend to view catchers through a lens very similar to TINSTAAP, so volume is key. Between Amaya, Pereda, and those two guys at the lower levels hopefully we've got depth at the position for a while, even if we end up dealing Willson somewhere. W...
