    FINALLY! Lord we need some good news at the major level. The rebuilding effort is needed, but painful to watch

    He just destroyed AA. Those stats are unreal.

    Sounds like a probably September callup to me. I think that will be a fun month with the prospects at least seeing a little big league time.

    Re: Cubs prospect Kris Bryant promoted to Iowa

    It's about ******* time. Here are his stats on the year, where he ranks in the Southern League, and how big his lead is or how much he trails the leader by:

    BA: .355 (1st, 30 points better than anyone else)
    OBP: .458 (1st, 48 points better)
    SLG%: .702 (1st, 105 points better)
    OPS: 1.160 (1st, 164 points better)
    Walks: 43 (1st, 4 more)
    Total bases: 174 (1st, 29 more)
    RBI: 58 (1st, 2 more)
    HR: 22 (1st, 9 more)
    Hits: 88 (1st, 9 more)
    Runs: 61 (1st, 15 more)

    The only stats where he didn't lead the league were strikeouts (2nd with 77) and doubles (3rd with 20). And as I just demonstrated, most of his leads in the respective categories were just ******* ridiculous. This is the kind of player you create while playing a video game, not a real person.

    He wont make a difference in getting the Cubs as contenders for the Division, so hold your horses. Let the kid mature in the minors...the last things the Cubs need to do is bring him up too soon and have to send him back down after a month.

    I'm playing the National Anthem this Saturday, come heckle me. Hopefully see some good ball even though I'm an A's fan. Maybe Manny will be there.

    Not to mention arbitration considerations. Don't want to bring him up too soon, or that clock starts.

    At this point Houston must feel that they made a mistake in drafting Mark Appel ahead of Bryant. Appel currently has a 6.34 ERA in Class A and Rookie league ball in 16 starts since signing.

    Re: Cubs prospect Kris Bryant promoted to Iowa

    I'm throwing out the first pitch tomorrow too!

    The Cubs are my favorite team and if he is the one I'm throwing to... I'd probably go 50 cent and totally mess up

    Plus, if the Cubs aren't going to contend for a playoff spot I don't see any advantage in winning a couple more games. Would rather get another high draft spot for next year instead.

    Yep, Bryant is a Scott Boras client so try and hold off Bryant's free agency year for as long as you can.

    Appel is having trouble with that weird type of rotation the Astros low minors run I think is what I read.
