I've already read a similar article about Chris but damn if this didn't have me in tears after reading it. What an outstanding man. Good Lord, what our country could learn if they approached life more like this young man.

Yeah. I'm really happy the Cubs drafted him and if his baseball career doesn't work out I wouldn't mind the Cubs organization keeping him around as a coach or mentor for the younger players.

The fallout from the Braves investigation might be huge:
The investigation remains open and is expected to look into the signing of top prospect Kevin Maitan, a 17-year-old shortstop who received a $4.25 million bonus last year. If improprieties are discovered with Maitan’s signing, he, too, could be declared a free agent

Jose Quintana will be on the next Cubs team that wins a World Series.

Jim Callis wrote:Few pitchers have made a bigger splash with one four-inning outing in Rookie ball than Albertos did in 2016 in the Rookie-level Arizona League. The Cubs shut the right-hander down after that start because he had forearm soreness, but it was enough for those who saw him to believe that he might have more upside than any pitching prospect in the organization.

Chicago continued to handle Albertos carefully in 2017 because he's still just 18. He pitched 43 innings between the AZL and the Short-Season Northwest League, continuing to wow scouts with a fastball that can reach 97 mph and a very advanced changeup. If he continues to make strides with his slurvy breaking ball and his command, he could be a No. 2 or 3 starter for the Cubs.


Nothing really new in there
