Just looked up Schwarber, Soler, and Bryant's stats this year combined.

Combined, those guys are hitting .340 with 75 HRs, and 214 RBIs in 259 games.

I've never lived through being excited about 10 prospects who all busted out. Hide the knives then.

I just struggle to understand what's the issue with being excited for these prospects. Theo has tanked the team to the past 3 years to accrue minor leaguers. They better be kick ass. Our success is dependent on these guys.

I don't buy that the Cubs will be FA players. Our stingy owner is too cheap to pay for extra guys to push a tarp for goodness sakes.

Average prospect.


The best from the class are already in AAA

True. But I don't expect Soler and Bryant to be there much longer.

Rodon will play in MLB before Bryant.

Right. Pitchers always develop more quickly than position players.

Bryant still being in the Minors has little to do with his readiness.

There's a reason you don't see a lot of guys hit 50 HRs in a minor league season.

Are you saying they are intentionally keeping players in the minors? You're going to get it from our good friend Bucky Chris.

Yes, I think most teams would have brought Bryant up if they were any good.

I understand why the Cubs aren't doing it.

his readiness as perceived by you

Epstein has shown that he judges readiness differently than the masses and that he does not find him ready as of yet. We saw the same thing with Baez and Vitters.

If you want to real conspiracy theory-y, you could say they brought Baez up earlier than he was ready for, knowing that he'll probably struggle somewhat the first 2 years or so.

Then, they can sign him to a team-friendly contract through most of his productive years.

But, I won't say that. Just throwing it out there.

Rodon envy. I get it and don't hold it against you. Hahn even tanks a season better than Theo.

You are by far my favorite.

I love how everything always turns into a semantics argument during these. The Cubs future certainly looks good right now.

I have to say, I was skeptical about the pick of Schwarber in this year's draft. I was hoping they might get Carlos Rodon, who the Sox picked one slot before the Cubs. But Schwarber has been outstanding so far, and has me feeling much more optimistic about the pick these days. I still believe Rodon is going to be a good pitcher and will be in the majors a hell of a lot sooner (maybe September) for sure. But Schwarber looks like he could be another good player.

Agree with all of this.

Player of the Week in 3 different leagues over 3 months. Average progression.

Quote:
Kyle Schwarber earned Player of the Week honors for the third time this season and for the third different league after putting together a huge week for the Daytona Cubs. Schwarber was named Florida State League Offensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Kyle Schwarber extended his hitting streak to 12 games during a week in which he hit home runs in five straight games. And Schwarber capped his run of longballs with two on Sunday to give him six homers in five games. Schwarber was 15-for-30 in eight games (.500/.529/1.333) and 11 of Schwarber’s 15 hits went for extra bases, four doubles and seven home runs for a 1.863 OPS. Schwarber walked three times, struck out four times and even swiped a base.

Kyle Schwarber has the second best slugging percentage in the minors (.671), behind only Kris Bryant.
Kyle Schwarber was the Northwest League Player of the Week for June 13-22 and the Midwest League Offensive Player of the Week for June 23-29.


Kyle Schwarber

Kyle Schwarber was not only named Florida State League Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, but he was also named MLB Pipeline’s Hitting Prospect of the Week.

PrintIn eight games, Kyle Schwarber was 15-for-30 with four doubles, seven home runs, eight runs scored and 13 RBI (.500/.529/1.333). Schwarber had a 1.863 OPS for the week.

Theo just said they are going to work him behind the plate in the instructional league. Was really giddy talking about Kyle in general.
