I'm not a huge fan of the Hulet rankings, but they are still worth something. His Cubs list is right here, and it's interesting at the end. 1. Javier Baez (70) 2. Kris Bryant (70) 3. Albert Almora (65) 4.…

It's the season of projections and they're all starting to come out or already have. About ten days ago I was looking at Javier Baez's page on Fangraphs and saw that Oliver projected him to have a .336 wOBA (109…

SG has released version 0.1 of his annual project, CAIRO, to the public. Now it's time to post some of the Cubs players here and talk about a few things. First, this is version 0.1 and there are still some errors.…

dmick89 has finally been cured! Not of his back problems, but of his boundless optimism for all things Cubs. That article is more-or-less required reading for this article, but I'll very quickly sum it up and say that there isn't…
