Cubs affiliates spent 2019 enjoying the most minor league talent they’ve seen in a while—a welcome sign for a fan base whose dynasty dreams have died a little each year. 

The developmental wing of the organization has been realigned this off-season, so we don’t know much about how the new team will help (or hurt) the players.

So hedge your bets. Keep your arms healthy, your mind open, and drink a cold Coor’s Light while you watch a full slate of MiLB games today. Here’s what else is happening around the minor leagues…

A busy week of baseball with the Padres signing Manny Machado, College Baseball in full swing, and spring training games kicking off this weekend. There’s lots to talk about. In hopes of getting you up to speed on all the happenings, injuries, and story lines of the first week of baseball, we run through 9 days worth of action in 60 minutes. We’re just that fast! (That’s what she unfortunately said) As Lance is fresh off his West Coast road trip, and I’ve been sitting in my basement watching Grand Canyon University play, rambling about nothing. Regardless, lots of baseball to talk, and that’s what we’re giving you. More baseball! It’s the latest episode of the Razzball Prospect Podcast!
