JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-24-13

Iowa Cubs 6 @ Memphis Redbirds 1 I'm just tired of writing about the Iowa Cubs. They don't have anyone on their team (they promoted Jae-Hoon Ha but he didn't play. Junior Lake walked once and struck out once. Logan Watkins went 1-5 with an RBI. Brooks Raley went 7 shutout innings. No one cares about the rest. […]

Nashville Sounds 5 @ Iowa Cubs 4 (7 innings) Logan Watkins! Double triples and a single single. 7 bases in one game is fine with me. Donnie Murphy had a single and a walk, with 2 RBI. Junior Lake had a walk, a strikeout, and an RBI. Brett Jackson had a walk and no strikeout. Brooks Raley had a double […]

Iowa Cubs 5 @ Oklahoma City Bombers 1 Your kids will no doubt remember this as the Brian Bogusevic game. He had 2 separate 2-run blasts, and drew a walk for good measure. He was near the entirety of the offense and a Quad-A MVP. Logan Watkins had a walk and a strikeout and nothing else; his […]

Iowa Cubs 5 @ Oklahoma City Bombers 8 Ian Stewart's goodbye game went ok, with a home run and a walk and two runs scored. Logan Watkins went 1-5. Normally, I'm a big fan of Luke's at Bleacher Nation, but I thought it was funny when yesterday he said Logan was slowly heating up. Well, he's […]

Iowa Cubs 7 @ Oklahoma City RedHawks 6 Logan Watkins had a double and a single, with 2 RBI. Dave Sappelt had a walk and a single and a single RBI. Brad Nelson went 2-4 with 2 HR. I can't imagine anyone in the organization having a better day than that. Junior Lake heard us arguing and wanted to […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-9-13

Pittsburgh Pirates 1 @ Chicago Cubs 4 Anthony Rizzo had a good day, going 0-2 with a pair of walks and no strikeouts. Starlin Castro continues to be awful (0-4, 2K). None of the trade bait really played today. Scott Hairston is theoretically trade bait and he went 0-3 with 2 strikeouts and an RBI. Carlos Marmol and Kevin […]

Round Rock Express 6 @ Iowa Cubs 0 Junior Lake returned. He was 1-4 at 3B and hit 6th. He was the only player to get a hit and not double; Logan Watkins, Steve Clevenger, and Donnie Murphy each had a single double. No one else had a hit. Guillermo Moscoso had another dicey performance, allowing 3 runs in […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-5-13

Programming Note Would people derive some benefit from my inclusion of yesterday's major league game in these? If so, I can start doing those as well, but I'm just assuming you follow the Cubs enough to know what happens day by day at the MLB level. Triple A wasn't scheduled, Double A and A+ were […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-4-13

New Orleans Zephyrs 2 @ Iowa Cubs 10 Both Ian Stewart and Logan Watkins had their 6th errors of the season today. The former hit a solo home run in 4 plate appearances (striking out twice), and the latter went 3-5 with two runs scored. Brett Jackson was 1-5 with 2 RBI and 2 SO. It's about to get really […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-4-13

New Orleans 10 @ Iowa Cubs 5 (13 innings) Logan Watkins was 1-6 with a strikeout today. He's been ice cold as of late, and his line now sits at .227/.343/.387. Repeat for Dave Sappelt. Brett Jackson went 4-6 with a home run and no strikeouts. He's only had 8 strikeouts in his last 10 games. Ready for the […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-01-13

Iowa Cubs 1 @ Nashville Sound 3 The I-Cubs have lost 3 straight in Nashville, and have scored a grand total of 5 runs in doing so. Hard to believe that an offense that bats Dave Sappelt third is struggling to score runs, but there you have it. Brian Bogusevic had the best day, going 2-3 with a […]

JOT Quick Hits: Cubs Minor League Recap 5-30-13

This is going to be quick.  Iowa Cubs 1 @ Nashville Sounds 6 No one did good except Logan Watkins, who was 2-5. Blake Parker struck out 3 in the ninth. Tennessee Smokies 5 @ Birmingham Barons 1 Ty Wright and Chad Noble each had 2 RBI. The Smokies had 11 hits this game but only 2 walks.  […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 5-30-13

Iowa Cubs 3 @ Nashville Sounds 4 Of course, the I-Cubs would lose to the Astros of AAA. No one really had a great day. I can tell you who had a bad day: Brett Jackson. He was 0-3 with a walk and 3 strikeouts. Dave Sappelt had a double and a walk, and that was the […]
