Could the Cubs’ top prospect be a difference-maker at the big league level in 2022 for the Cubs?
The Cubs not only have a lot of options for the bullpen heading into Spring Training, but also almost all of them have options remaining.
Cubs Prospect Notes: More Confirmation of Cubs Massive Depth, Kilian, Velazquez, Howard, Gallardo, More
Yeah, the Cubs are loaded with legit prospects. They have the most “almost top 100” prospects in baseball. Lots to get into.
The Milwaukee Brewers once again look like the class of the NL Central, and I’m not sure the Cubs can get there *on paper* this offseason.
I can’t even believe this. Throw away the key.
Could you see the Cubs having a sister city where they play some of their “home” games?
Now we’ll find out what issues the players will dig in on most aggressively.
The electronic strike zone is getting promoted up the minor league ladder.
A little more hype coming the Cubs’ way. I like this. This is fun to track.
Picking inside the top ten for the first time in seven years, the Cubs will be able to land a top prospect in this year’s draft.
The plan never really made much sense, but the Rays were serious in trying to make it happen (or make it look like it was happening).
The Cubs are really quite deep in this type of prospect.
A transformative moment in the Cubs’ history came seven years ago. Also: we might see a player CBA response today or tomorrow.
Winning every CBA can’t be the sole focus for the owners in the long run.
This is just fun stuff to watch, especially when we are desperately awaiting the return of baseball.
Two for now, but several more by midseason? That’s certainly the hope.
If you’re the best shortstop on the market, you probably want to get the best contract a shortstop gets.
Wonder where your opinions stand in relation to the rest of Cubs fandom?
Well that’s kind of a wild thing to switch up in the middle of a lockout. Let’s talk about the implications.

A whole lotta Cubs prospecting bits to get into, including the highest praise we’ll see out there for Cubs outfield prospect Kevin Alcantara.
Lukewarm Stove: Are Teams Still Hoarding Prospects? Correa, Bryant, and Rizzo, Suzuki’s Market, Freeman’s Sticking Point, More
When does hoarding prospects go too far, and create opportunities for more aggressive teams? That, and more on the latest rumors.
I will take all the wild stats. Also, I’m not saying I’m rooting AGAINST Nico Hoerner being a great shortstop.
And *maybe* even saved the whole thing! (Ok, that’s a bit much, but it’s a fun story.)
Get yourself more familiar with the top prospects in the draft this year before the amateur seasons begin.
What are the White Sox going to do with Craig Kimbrel?
It’s easy to look at splits and just say you could make up a great position from two platoon guys. But the actual roster math rarely works out.
It seems an odd time to be thinking about that particular trade, but it came back into my head today and I wanted to discuss.
New prospects enter the Chicago Cubs farm system.
The Cubs Have One of the Biggest Payroll Differences Between Their Current Level and Their Recent High
Just a reminder on how much room the Cubs theoretically have to work with.
Left field at Camden Yards will now feature extreme depth and a weird chunk sticking out.
Tomorrow is a big – albeit weird – day on the baseball calendar. The Cubs will land a trio of new prospects, and more.

The Value of a Really Average Pitcher, Sticking to History, Poaching Players, and Other Cubs Bullets
If you knew you were getting a league-average pitcher for a whole lot of innings, how much is that worth?
Jean Ramirez was just 28.
No more 61′ 6″. Just back to the old standard distance.
Going through the process is instructive if you’re going to seriously pursue a guy like Carlos Correa on a 10-year deal.
As expected, the players weren’t jumping up and down to accept today’s proposal.
