One of the SBN partners with Bleed Cubbie Blue is Minor League Ball with John Sickels. One of the things that John likes to do is conduct a mock Minor League Draft with his readers volunteering to take over every team. Now, it's only the first three rounds, but really, I'm having diffucluty reading up for the first round pick, could you imagine having to sort through players for pick 1,000 or so?
Anyway, I volunteered to conduct the Cubs mock draft and I thought I would make a fanpost here to get a good draft conversation going and maybe we'll start talking about the Cubs system as a whole.
This year the Cubs have picks
The overall goal I always believe is to take the best talent because it often takes 3 or 4 years for players to develop and who knows what will happen with injuries, trades, and what not at the major league level. That being said, I think the Cubs are good on 2B/LFs. Fire away on your thoughts/suggestions.
