You're sooo wrong! Opposing managers will clear out their pen by the 5th vs the Cubs powerhouse lineup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They weren't counting heavily on any of those players. They're all bridge gaps. And they have duplicates.

They didn't "bank" on anyone.

It's not that they were banking on Nate so much.

I wanted to smack Nate for getting picked off at 3rd. That's the cherry on top of his season.

He's playing well. But he is not nearly as talented as what the Cubs have in the pipeline.

Which is why I'm saying let Iowa finish it's season first. Then, take Vitters or Jackson off.

That would require a trade... If anyone wants Wright... or Russell (who I think will stay as a valued veteran presence)
Commented on Cubs Minor League Wrap: July 26 on Jul 27 2014, 10:37a
Vitters, Jackson, and Watkins are really the only randoms. Other spots will open in November with expiring contracts.

Any contender is looking for someone who can actually help. And Jackson isn't proving worthy of that.

The Cubs are trying to deal Jackson (praying and holding lucky rabbits feet), and he goes out and does this with the deadline approaching.
