Re: Ben Zobrist to the DL, David Bote Called Up

David Bote was drafted in the 18th round in 2012, making him the lowest drafted player by this Cubs regime to make it to the big leagues. The previous lowest was 2013 10th rounder Zack Godley (and if you're limiting it to just guys who made it with the Cubs, the lowest drafted big leaguer is 2014 3r...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-20-18

Nice night for Hudson, first bad game for Rucker in a awhile... Of course the highlight of the night was Alzolay. I can't remember the last time the Cubs have had a starting pitching prospect this good in Iowa. Of course Hendricks is awesome, but he was a nice surprise; a B prospect that turned out...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-20-18

"He was awesome," said Iowa manager Marty Pevey. "Dominating fastball, great ball speed and arm speed on his changeup and the making of a good breaking ball." ... That was just about all Nashville could do against Alzolay, who attacked the zone with his fastball, changeup and cu...

Re: Butler to 10 Day DL (Groin/shenanigans), Luke Farrell Up

I was gonna say "Luke Farrell of all people?" but Mills and Tseng haven't looked great in Iowa so far and they want a longman in the pen and probably wanna see what they have in son of John (otherwise just call up Zastrysny). Honestly probably just comes down to Farrell being the most res...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-19-18

I think you're selling Bote short at this point. I think he really has taken a step forward. To be fair to toonster, he said pop and defense. Short is clearly further up the defensive spectrum since he can play an adequate SS. I’d definitely disagree if toonster prefers Short’s power to Bote’s (or ...

With Montrell Marshall batting, throwing error by Jose Albertos on the pickoff attempt, Miles Gordon to 2nd. Montrell Marshall strike...

What is the reference to “expectations and what he’s done in past” and he concerns about with Hankins? 6’5” 17 year old hitting mid 90s doesn’t seem like there’s too much concern other than just the general concerns about prep arms. He had shoulder "fatigue" recently that knocked him out ...
