The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by RC Cola

Iowa

Brett Jackson had a pair of hits and stole his 3rd base of the year and Anthony Rizzo continues to mash AAA pitching to the tune of .380 as the Iowa Cubs  lost 2-6. It might be time for Jay Jackson to say goodbye as he is just terrible. Yesterday also marked the debut of Frank Batista in AAA. Batista started the year in AA and did well and he struck out 2 in 2 IP last night. Seems like the Cubs like this guy alot based on a sub 10 IP sample. 

Smokies

We should just stop talking about AA. The only player left who is worth a shit is a RP. 

Daytona

AGGRESSIVE BASERUNNING! is spreading. Last night Daytona had 3 guys caught stealing. Spellcheck Jr now has as many CS as SB's. Knuckleballer Joe Zeller had a decent 4 inning appearance and tonight Hayden Simspon pitches after getting a few days extra rest after his last debacle. 

Peoria

Taiwan Easterling hit a triple which drew a stern rebuke from the Chinese Embassy. Tonight the Cubs continue their annual game of Is He a Starter or RP? by switching Kyle(r) Burke from the pen to start the game. Because nothing is better for young arms than to keep doing this over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over
