Informative thread.


Rule 5 eligible. Will be interesting to see if he interests teams since his profile normally wouldn’t. Rondón will definitely warrant some Rule 5 interest as a LOOGY if he keeps this up.

Re: 2018 AFL

Adam: How has Nico Hoerner looked? Eric A Longenhagen: Fine. 5 arm is not ideal at short and he has a weird arm stroke, but I bet they let him play there. Chaise: Did you watch Steele yesterday? Better numbers but did the process back up the results? Eric A Longenhagen: Nope I was at SRF for Dup/Buk

Re: Minor League Musings

Crane Kenney: The Cubs are viewed (at least from the outside) as one of the more analytical clubs. However, it seems that their player dev isn’t on the same level as other, similar, teams such as the Yankees and Dodgers. Why is that? Eric A Longenhagen: They’ve been pretty conservative with amateur ...

Re: International Free Agency Thread 2018-2019

Mike: With the Mesas and Sandy Gaston signed, who is the top IFA left (if any)? Kiley McDaniel: Have referenced this in a few places, but there’s basically no consensus $500K+ prospects left right now. Asia is light, there may be some hideout guys in Mexico but that is contingent on MLB opening the ...

https://twitter.com/mlbpipeline/status/1054731813908869122?s=21 WTF are the Orioles going to do with their $6 million, some of which they traded for?

Regular Show wrote:Nico seems to have adapted to the better pitching in the AFL. Not saying I would do this or Cubs management, but he could start next season at AA.

Most likely he starts at High-A alongside Ademan and Amaya.


Agreee. I’ve been under the impression he’ll skip high-A with a good AFL.

Re: Minor League Musings

Danny Hultzen re-signed with the Cubs. So did Chris Pieters, Gioskar Amaya, Roberto Caro and Erick Castillo.

Re: Week 7: Patriots @ Bears noon on CBS

Cut Parkey if he can’t make a 57-yard FG in today’s NFL.

At least try a Hail Mary instead of whatever that was.

5M bonus for a guy most see as 4th OFer with an Almora comp as an upside. Not sure what the bidding war was all about. Kiley McDaniel and Eric Longenhagen compared him to Almora, but that's not a universal opinion. Ben Badler disagreed with that and dropped a Victor Robles comp; VVM (NY): Good afte...

Scott of Lincolnshire: Eric! How’d Justin Steele look?

Eric A Longenhagen: Meh. 90-93, average curveball, below control.


That was after watching his bad first start but before his second, good start.
