A deeper analytical look at Chicago Cubs Baseball from some posters both within and outside of PSD.

Arizona Fall League Cubs players announced: C.J. Edwards, Addison Russell, Dan Vogelbach, Zach Cates, Ivan Pineyro, Gerardo Concepcion, Jacob Hannemann (taxi squad)
Wow surprised Almora or Schwarber weren't added to the list
I really hope Edwards performs well, I'd love to see him start at AAA if he shows he can be dominant
Does this mean Schwarber is still viewed by the cubs as a catching possibility? Maybe they wanted
him in AZ instructs working on his technique and catching skills. It would be huge if he turned out to be average behind the plate.
Good point on Schwarber, he signed really early and him playing catcher probably means he needs more rest then most. Would have been nice to see Pierce Johnson on the list after his injury this year but whatever.
Or just who gets traded since that is probably going to happen to someone.They might appear. But now it's a, who will bust in the MLB and never adjust?
I think out of the top players in our system, Schwarber would be the most likely to be dealt (if it turns out he can't stick at Catcher). Possibly Almora too if Alcantara proves to be able to lock down that position first.

If you had your best guess as to who is the most untouchable who would it be? I'd go between Russell and Bryant.
Maybe the best way to acquire major league talent from prospects is to just have so many goddamn great ones you can survive any attrition the universe could possibly throw at you.
Russell pinch hit tonight, so that's fantastic news after he had a splint on his thumb last night.
Almora doubled and tripled as well.
Zastryzny had 9 K's in 5 innings.
