Here is the first draft grade distribution for 35 Chicago Cubs prospects, listed below. There is considerable play here in the B/B-/C+ territory.

Grade A: Zero
Grade A-: Zero
Grade B+: One
Grade B: Three
Grade B-: Seven
Grade C+: 11
Grade C: 13

This may seem down compared to recent Cubs lists due to all the recent graduations, but a large number of the C+/B- guys could be much higher once they get more experience and we get more data. Overall I still like this system.
