Winter Leagues
 
I was looking at some of our Cubs who are playing in various winter leagues and thought it would be nice to post all their stats.

Papelbon is an interesting pitcher. I think he had a good scoreless innings streak going to end the season at Daytone.

He could be the next LOOGY

He's only interesting because of his last name. He's 25 and never been above A+ ball for a reason. His 51 K's to 25 BB wasn't that impressive last season either.

I watched Papelbon when he was in Peoria, and he was very good there, but he was primarily in the starting role with the Chiefs. He went 9-6 with a 3.11 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP. He had 107 IP, only gave up 7 homers and 30 walks, with 99 strikeouts.

My concern about him is that he will be 26, and that is getting "up there" in pitching years.


Here is a really interesting article that Jeremy and his twin brother Josh (who also is in Minor League ball) did: http://www.oceanviewpress.com/id97.html

Like you said when you were defending Brad Snyder and his sub 700 OPS 4:1 K:BB ratio at 26 years old at AAA, sometimes its more than the numbers.

The Cubs minor league promotion system is extremely slow. I think that's been proven.

It's not that uncommon for relievers to break in the big leagues in the late 20s, Wuertz, Ohman, and George Sherrill immediately come to mind. The ultimate goal is to get these guys to the point where you can get enough MLB service out of them to not have to go out and pay $$$ for the inflated FA reliever salaries.

Bockstock Nov 10th 2008 9:23 pm

BTW it was 35 2/3 scoreless innings he threw at Daytona.

Alright, so I made a major typo... Sam Fuld was batting .241, not .421. Sorry, Sam :(

ryno4ever Nov 11th 2008 12:04 am

I always wondered what happend to Ryan O'Malley.... good to see he is still playing.

Josh Kroeger is a guy to watch. I was asking for his call up over Hoffpauer. This kid can flat out hit.

Kroeger's a minor league FA. I doubt he goes back the cubs, especially since the Cubs for some reason had Fuld, Fox, and Snyder on the 40-man Roster over him last season. Same with Matt Craig, who should have been at AAA a couple of years ago.
