2013 Cubs Prospects in Review: Ivan Pineyro

Ivan Pineyro was signed by the Washington Nationals in 2010…for just $16,000. I'm assuming he probably had some instructs before his 2011 FRk debut in the Washington Dominican Summer League. Starting exclusively, Pineyro dominated in his ~70 innings in 2011 as a 19-year old, and was uneven in 2012 (but dealt with a line drive […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 8-26-13

Omaha Strom Chasers 1 @ Iowa Cubs 2 Mike Olt went 0-1 with 3 walks. That's an interesting line. He's still been hot garbage for the Cubs since the trade (.155/.244/.282, .245 wOBA, 37 wRC+), but over the last 10, he's .259/.429/.407. That's workable. I'm still much less confident in his abilities than I was […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 8-22-13

Memphis Redbirds 4 @ Iowa Cubs 3 The Resistance is a game where players attempt to deduce one another's identities. It is similar in structure to party games such as Mafia and Werewolf, where a small, informed minority attempt to mislead a larger, uninformed majority. The Resistance uses slightly different mechanics from similar games, and […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 8-1-13

Iowa Cubs 3 @ Salt Lake Bees 9 Mike Olt was 1-4 with a strikeout. Logan Watkins was 1-5. As I said, only 2 people actually play offense on this team. I think starting next Friday, I'm going to take a vacation from Iowa box scores and just write about anything more interesting (which, coincidentally, […]

JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 7-21-13

Iowa Cubs 0 @ Round Rock Express 3  Logan Watkins had half of the 4 hits the I-Cubs had today. He also stole a base. Donnie Murphy had a double, and Josh Vitters had a single and a walk. That was it. This team S-U-C-K-S to watch and write about. Besides Watkins and Vitters, I'm not […]
