    He supposedly is still struggling a little bit with his command/control, which are always the two things that come last for a recovering TJS patient. The important thing is that his stuff seems to...

    That Eugene team is fun as hell to follow right now. I wish their games were a little earlier, though. I've turned into an old man and find it hard to stay up that late and listen.

    Wow, you're right. I just remember Badler saying it would be nearly impossible for him to gain clearance for this IFA period when he first defected. Another interesting guy on the table.

    Near a guarantee that an international draft will be instituted after next year. I'm guessing the FO didn't want to risk going big next year without knowing what the ramifications would be once it...

    He won't be available until next signing period, and thus will be unavailable for the Cubs.

    It's tough to get too upset at what the Cubs have already done in IFA, considering how many years the team spent next to nothing down there. I remember when giving Larry Suarez $750K or so was a...

    This was exactly my initial thought about Wilson as well. The thing that held me back from really liking him was all the "Ben Revere" talk by some of the prospect guys. That's not very appealing. ...

    It was just a down year for arms overall. Cubs actually signed (or will sign) 4 of Kiley's top 8 arms. This doesn't include the good Cuban arms in Norge Ruiz or Vladimir Gutierrez, though, and we...

    I share the concern about Happ's K rate from college, but as others have mentioned, 11 games doesn't mean much yet. I'm more interested in finding out what the scouting reports look like from his...

    I look forward to monitoring that rotation in Eugene. The whole team will be interesting once Happ and Dewees get sent up there.

    Crap. I wanted him.

    But at this point, it's easier just to assume the Dodgers will get all the big-name Cubans that they want. Then if the Cubs actually do come away with one of them (Martinez...

    minorleaguecentral.com has contact rates. Just don't pay any attention to the zone contact or out of zone contact. Too unreliable down there.

    And I am really hoping that milb.com gameday just...

    Eww. I would not be happy with a Matuella pick at 9 at all. Blown elbow; back issues before that; and to top it off, no history of great performance. Pass. I'd consider Aiken at 9 if the...

    Kiley McDaniel tied the Cubs to Daz Cameron and Kyle Tucker in his chat today. He also said that the Astros have been in hard on Cameron all Spring as well, so he's probably gone at 5. I am not a...

    One of them was even a double to RF. He made contact on all 8 pitches he swung at today, and had a terrific 8 pitch AB that started with him falling behind 1-2 and ended with him lacing a line drive...

    Now through 58 PAs: 94.5% - Still just the 4 swings and misses, but in 226 total pitches seen. Even against some mediocre pitching, that's incredibly impressive for a guy who is also carrying an ISO...

    He tried, but wasn't receiving the same generous zone. Balls 2 and 3 against Alvarez were certainly close enough to call.
