What’s going on Chicago Cubs fans? I hope everybody enjoyed their Wednesday and don’t worry, we’re only a couple days away from Friday. Now while the big league Chicago Cubs and Edwin Jackson took the field against the Cincinnati Reds during an evening contest, a couple Minor League affiliates had games postponed. The Iowa Cubs and the Kane County Cougars have seen a couple of their games postponed due to this ridiculous weather so far in 2014.

Kane County will have a double header tomorrow, while Iowa is still waiting to see when it will make up its game. The hot topic for tonight was 2013 National League Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw making a rehab appearance against the Tennessee Smokies. This was the perfect opportunity for Cubs prospects to get an early look at someone who dominated the league last season.

We’ll cover that game first, so let’s get down to business.
