    Stating the obvious, Gardner is way faster. McKinney won't ever have anything near that kind of defensive value. Offensively though, I think that's a solid comparison. McKinney definitely has a...

    I kinda expect the Cubs to grab one second tier SP and call it an offseason. Someone like Hammel or Liriano.

    Yeah depending on how you define who is an isn't a prospect, he's in that conversation. Right now I'd go

    1. Soler
    2. Bryant
    3. Russell
    4. Baez
    5. Schwarber

    Torres has had an outstanding first season. What's really great is at 17 there aren't any glaring holes. K rate <20%, BB rate at 14%, slash line of .297/.386/.440. Adequate tools to stay at SS, and...

    Yeah, definitely don't see them spending any money on the bullpen. Good, cheap arms already up, plus a few more in the system that could end up being good as well.

    I really don't think they're going to make a big splash on starting pitching this year. I think they've gotten into a really good place by stocking up on prospects and cost-controlled assets, and I...

    Arguments about floor are pointless. Every player's floor is nothing. Even current superstars could have a career-ending injury tomorrow. Conversations about ceiling can be equally ridiculous. It's...

    Haha I love this forum. Every year, there's some top flight free agent who people just treat like a foregone conclusion. The idea that the Cubs are going to outbid the rest of the world for Jon...

    I don't think we should expect any big free agent signing this offseason. If there is a big move this offseason, my money would be on trading Castro.

    Hopefully, by July it will be Schwarber, Russell, Edwards, and Johnson are all in the big leagues, with Almora and McKinney in AAA.

    He will almost certainly start next year at Tennessee. I really hope he can stick at C. In terms of current top prospects, here's where I'd expect them to start

    I don't think Almora's a 30 HR guy, but I definitely think he can be a guy like Castro who can hit quite a few HR's because of the kind of hard contact they make.

    You don't think Bryant, Baez, Schwarber, Soler, and Rizzo could hit 30 HR's in the same season? That's the only one I think they've got a decent shot at. I understand it's a different league and it's...

    I was looking at some team home run numbers to see what the Cubs could break in the next 3-5 years.

    No team has ever had 40 players hit 40 HR's. Could happen, but probably a long shot in today's...

    Bryant with another very long out in the 11th. Soler singled, 2-4 HR 2 BB. Nice that he's over that little slump.

    Bucks totally have the pieces to get Bledsoe. Really hope they offer Henson, Middleton+picks. They'd not only get Bledsoe, they'd clear up playing time logjams at the forwards spots.

    Another great game for Schwarber. 1-2 HR 2 BB. His OPS is up to .880. 17% BB, 21% K.

    So far, looking like a great pick.

    Jeffrey Baez is having a really good season. He's a legit breakout candidate for next season as well. Very impressive power numbers from a guy who is supposed to have the tools to stick in CF.

    His line for game 2 was .500/.500/.500

    BA changes more because it starts lower/has a lower dividing number.

    For instance, if he had gone into the game with a line of .270/.500/.500 and had his...

    McKinney's a guy that I think the brass might really end up falling in love with. Looks like he could turn into an OBP machine. Only 40 games in Daytona, but dude's got a .314/.400/.445 slash in the...
