I am now working on the Oakland Athletics Top 20 prospects list for 2016. The next team in line is the Chicago Cubs, to be followed by the New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Angels, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, and the Cincinnati Reds.
Use this thread to discuss the Chicago Cubs organization. Some potential topics for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to,
***The Cubs won 97 games last year. With the off-season changes to the roster, do they get to 100 this year?
***What's your projected slash line for Addison Russell in 2016? If this isn't his breakthrough year, when will it be?
***Jorge Soler: same question.
***What's your plan for Javier Baez? Heck you can answer the slash line question for him too.
***What's your plan for Kyle Schwarber?
***Or you can combine all these into one big question: how do you deploy this much positional talent? Who gets traded? Who do you commit to?
***Among the guys still in the minors, who do you like better, Albert Almora or Billy McKinney?
***As always, feel free to discuss your sleepers or anything else Cubs-related.
