Re: Minor League Playoff Discussion & Boxes, 9-14-19

Riley Thompson allowed one baserunner on an error, K'd 10 in 5 shutout innings Cubswin and others, what's the word on Riley's stuff these days? Yesterday capped a pretty nice season overall, K/IP around 1, K/BB around 3 not that bad, HR's maybe the yellow-flag. Draft reports were good velocity, and...

Re: Minor League Playoff Discussion & Boxes, 9-14-19

Nico is already horsefeathering around in the big leagues, Brennen Davis should be considered a unanimous top 100 prospect in baseball, Cole and Kohl are probably top 10 prospects in this system, Riley Thompson, Jack Patterson, Andy Weber, Cam Sanders and Edumond Americaan are all arguably top 30 pr...

Re: Minor League Musings

I feel like BA has a lot more oversights the past few years Hmmn... Omitting Amaya ... maybe that's why they had us with the 29th overall farm system recently ... They also didn't have Chris Morel in their recent top 30, which is ludicrous. They obviously fell off a lot when Jim Callis left, since ...

No Cubs in the final Prospect Hot Sheet But Pedro Martínez was the helium prospect: HELIUM Pedro Martinez, 2B, Cubs The Cubs aggressively assigned Martinez to the short-season Northwest League, and he responded with an excellent half-season.

https://twitter.com/cubscentral08/status/1168244613741785088?s=21 I know it's only 26.1 innings but I wonder if Brailyn was dominant enough to have the Cubs thinking about starting him at AA. Feels similar to Adbert who spent most of 2017 in high-A, logged 32.2 AA innings to end the season and then...
