Minor League Ball Scouting Report of Cubs 3B Prospect Christian Villanueva

Sickels Report: "Although he has some issues to address, overall I think Villanueva is a solid prospect. He's at least a year away, but if no one seizes the third base job by 2014, he will certainly be in the picture for the Cubs. His defensive ability could give him an edge while he works the offensive kinks out."

Rizzo to Make Debut Tuesday?

According to Kaplan at CSN Chicago. If its true then hopefully it's the start of a long and productive career.

Interview With Cubs Prospect Trevor Gretzky

The son of the most famous hockey player to ever lace a pair of skates is about to embark on a baseball career with the Chicago Cubs attempting to make "Gretzky" a household name but only this time playing America’s favorite past-time. Trevor Gretzky was drafted in the 7th round, 219th overall in the 2011 amateur baseball draft by the Chicago Cubs. The sweet swinging lefty played first base for the Oaks Christian High School in Westlake Village, California where he posted a .393 batting average and an OPS of 1.043 in his senior year. Gretzky wore the infamous #99 during his senior baseball year and was also a quarterback for the Oaks Christian football team. Leading up to the draft there was speculation that Gretzky may attend San Diego State University on a baseball scholarship under the tutelage of head coach and Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn. However Gretzky elected for the MLB draft and is currently playing in extended spring training for the Cubs in Arizona rehabbing from shoulder surgery this past off-season. Gretzky is still unaware where he will be assigned after spring training concludes but one thing is for sure he will be doing it with a work ethic second to none.

Texans' DT Amobi Okoye Up for Trade

The Texans' have given up-and-coming DT Amobi Okoye permission to shop himself to other teams. The Texans are switching to a 3-4 defense and Okoye doesn't fit as a DE in the scheme... Could potentially be a good buy low candidate. He is a former high first rounder who is only 24, has great size and explosiveness to play 3 technique, and has steadily improved over his first 3 years in the league.

OT: Maddux Shuts Down Sox in First Game of Chicago "Ultimate Rivalry" Series

"Editor's note: Earlier this summer ESPNChicago.com asked users to select the All-Time Cubs team and the All-Time White Sox team. We are now simulating a series between the two teams, playing a game each weekday until a winner is decided." I didn't see this posted anywhere and I thought this is a pretty cool series that they have going on over at . Cubs, led by a complete game shutout by Greg Maddux and 3 RBI from Mark Grace, take game one of the week long series from Mark Buehrle and the Sox. Something to take our minds off of the disappointment of the actual games being played.
