I have heard the "take impact guys" motto, but what does that mean afayk?


I'd expect the Cubs to be closely watching high ceiling, unpolished high school pitching. If they can get a couple of guys who throw in the mid 90s, have one good pitch and two more pitches that could be good with work, I think they'll be pretty happy with their day.


Sure would be nice to build our bullpen from the minors in the future...seems like the model that works for a lot of teams with consistently good bullpens.

This was a good pick for the Cubs. I hope they draft two more bats tonight.

The Cubs were so locked in on Almora that I strongly suspect they know signing him won't be a problem.

Supplementals about to begin. Smoral is on the board.

And I'm still dreaming.

So how long before Wilken gets blamed for taking players that the fans disagreed with? It will have to be the fault of someone that was here last year.
