You've brainwashed me, Mitten. When I first read this, I was sitting here trying to figure out what the heck the acronym for TYPO stood for.
TYPO I meant "outside" whoops.

Will you assess Vogelbach's defense and what he does in terms of another position? Or do those questions belong elsewhere?

I was a little disappointed in some of the minor league assignments this year, especially some of the young pitching talent. I was a little surprised that virtually all of the younger 2012 draft choices are being left in Mesa/Boise instead of Kane County. I'm talking about McNeil, Blackburn, Lang, Underwood, and Prieto. I know the answer lies in their ages, but it seems like the Cubs take this to a different level. Almost like you have to be 21 or 22 to go to the low minors if you're a Cubs pitching prospect.
All the guys I mentioned pitched in rookie league competition. The Kane County roster doesn't hardly have anyone who you might consider young for the league or even average age. I guess my question is, do you think the Cubs are possibly being too cautious with these guys? Or is it all about putting them in a position to succeed? I'm just a bit disappointed that some aren't being challenged a little more. Just wondering what your thoughts on this are. Thanks!
Also a little disappointed that Dunston isn't on the Cougars! especially with Almora hurt (by the way, in batting practice, he was playing the outfield left handed in Mesa the other day -- Almora that is - and looking really sharp too!).
