Myles’ Top 15 Positional Prospects List

Now that I've done the AtP for all of the positional players, I've got my Top 15 prospects list ready. I did it all on my own, but the list is really similar to many of the others out there, with minor variations.  First, I'll explain my methodology. I first made a system from 59 […]

Assume the Position: RF

Finally, the last AtP for positional players. I've used basically all of the outfielders in the other two outfield summaries. This one is a bit light. Soler is a great prospect and that's it. Everyone else sucks.        Last Year 2013 Career   Name Age AVG OBP SLG wOBA pwOBA AVG OBP SLG […]

“Daily” Facepalm 2/28/13

All the muck that's fit to rake on this last day of February… Good News! Bleacher Nation's creator and all-around Good Dude Brett welcomes Clark Taylor into the world. I think I speak for all of us when I say congratulations, and also have him start throwing lefty because we definitely need some pitching prospects. Brett […]

2013 Cubs Projections: Starlin Castro

Before we get to Starlin Castro's 2013 Cubs Projections, I wanted to talk a little bit about something else in regard to Castro. An awful lot has been written about Starlin Castro over his young career. It seems that most of this has been at the two extremes. We've heard and read countless times about […]

Assume the Position: CF

Apparently, CF isn't as loaded as I thought (for my purposes, Soler is a RF, not a CF). There's at least one top 3-5 teamwide prospect in here, and a few ok-ish prospects as well, but it's not a surplus of value like I thought when I started.       Last Year 2013 Career […]

Has Junior Lake passed Josh Vitters on the depth chart?

Ian Stewart is injured. It's not his wrist this time, but he'll be out a few weeks. Luis Valbuena has already made the team. Josh Vitters is also out an other 2-3 weeks, but I thought this was interesting. The Cubs do face some decisions regarding Stewart. His $2 million contract is non-guaranteed, which is […]

Bunt Tournament Update!

The Bunt Tournament signups are now closed. We had 34 entrants, and 48 spots to for these contestants. That means I randomly assigned 14 people a BONUS CONTESTANT! Here are your players: mikeakaelroy 1 37 DeJesus Feldman SVB 2   Soler   John 3   Barney   Ruben 4   Lake   SK 5   […]

Assume the Position: LF

Bad news and good news: Bad News: The Cubs have terrible prospects at left field. There isn't even really a projectable major-league starter here (maybe Pin-Chieh Chen? Maybe?). It might be more barren than catcher. Good News: The Cubs are loaded at CF and RF. It's extremely likely that one of those prospects could just […]

What’s wrong with the 2013 Cubs Oliver projections?

I noticed yesterday on Fangraphs that they had published the 2013 Cubs Oliver Projections. Actually, they'd posted all the teams in their projections section, but I was interested in the Cubs. Here they are. Name PA AVG OBP SLG wOBA Fld BsR WAR Starlin Castro 647 .302 .346 .449 .343 8.6 -0.3 5.4 Anthony Rizzo […]

2013 Cubs Projections: Ian Stewart and Luis Valbuena

Our 2013 Cubs Projections series continues with a look at 3rd base. The starting job is Ian Stewart's according to Dale Sveum, which leaves Luis Valbuena as a back-up, but even that job may be in question. It's hard to see both Valbuena and Brent Lillibridge making the roster. I wrote a little bit about […]
