Totally agree. Just another Cubs prospect flame out. On to the next. Speaking of starting to get worried about Baez and Watkins strike out #s.

We should have signed Yasiel Puig instead of Soler. He hit over 500 this spring and is slated for AA. Kid is going to be a stud. Soler is no where near what this guy is. What sucks is the Cubs were rumored to offer him more money than the Dodgers.

Good farm systems produce about 40-50% of their top ten.

Have seen numbers on this, or you are basing it off anecdotalisms?

Not sure I agree with the sobering news of 1 out of 5 success % is a sign Cubs are doing well. Good farm systems produce about 40-50% of their top ten. I think Almora, Baez and Soler are as close to cant miss as Cubs have had in a long time. If we can develop 3-4 pitchers along with the big 3 then we are a homegrown playoff team.

He played 3rd today. 2 errors, makes 9 total.
