Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-27-17

Would anyone believe me if I said that I said Jimenez was the next big thing in the system to an employee of the Cubs in 2015? Why wouldn't anyone believe you? He was the number 1 overall international free agent. And unless that employee was a hot dog vendor, most Cubs employees were thinking the ...

So, 106 or so by the 5th? Stadium gun and all, but yeah, this is super impressive.

Trevor Cahill 10. Jeremy Hellickson I really hope we can find a way to get Gray. At this point though...

Zagunis also left the game earlier. He fouled one off his foot and was in considerable pain, stayed in the game and even got on base but left after that half inning.
