Cub Tracks Is A Showcase

This picture was in Arizona. Baez returns this fall. Sequel! - USA TODAY Sports

All the talk is the Arizona Fall League, where the Cubs' future will be on full display. And the team is thumping its collective chest a bit for besting the Dodgers' ace. All that and more in today's Cub Tracks.

I had the Wiffle Ball show on (see below) while making dinner Monday. Kinda fun to watch.

From Comcast SportsNet

  • After beating Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, the Cubs think the talent gap is closing. I think that is a drastic over-reaction, but I like the sentiment.
  • The Arizona Fall League will be a real showcase for Javier Baez and Kris Bryant, among other Cub prospects. Nice note near the end: Dale Sveum lives near Mesa in the offseason, so he'll have an extra chance to watch many of these players in action.
  • One of those "other" prospects is Arodys Vizcaino. The front office wants to get a long look at his electric stuff during the fall.
  • Money Badger Javier Baez has helped lead Double-A Tennessee to the playoffs. This link includes and interview with and highlights of Javy.
  • Donnie Murphy is just hoping to stick with the Cubs. So far, so good, Donnie Baseball.
  • In case you missed it, CSN aired Kerry Wood's "Woody's Wiffle Ball Classic". You can watch it here. Surely, this is must-see-tv for Easy Ed.
