    Is Alcantara up for good Cub fans? Looks like it's still up in there after the break.

    He was only supposed to be up while Barney was out, but they had some ability to keep him up over the weekend because of the pitching situation. My guess is he will be back at Iowa to start the 2nd half.

    I get the intent in that, but from a Cubs fan perspective you can't help but feel like the reasoning is "you're playing far to well, back to Iowa."

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Man, as an avid baseball fan the Cubs minor league system is just loaded. Let's say for ***** and giggles they all make it to the majors...you're looking at a lineup of Alcantara, Bryant, Baez, Russell, Castro, Rizzo, Soler, and Schwarber. That doesn't even include Almora who could still pan out. Obviously the likelihood they all make it and no one is traded is small but it's fun to dream!

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Not sure if y'all have heard or not, but this is pretty cool.

    In a 30 minute span, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Addison Russel, and Jorge Soler hit homeruns.

    Looks like Baez is going to be our future second basemen.

    Also, if Soler can finish through August with the numbers he's putting up, I wouldn't be shocked to see him, Bryant, and Baez get September call ups.

    Baez will be the only one of those three that has a chance of being in Chicago this season.

    Bryant won't see Chicago this year. He will next though.

    Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Why wouldn't Bryant come up in September? Don't players have to play a certain amount of games before it's counted as a year of service time (and if so, don't they have to play in more games than they would as a September call-up?)?
