The times are a-changing; and that’s a good thing.
The Chicago Cubs have reaped the rewards of their hard work. After rebuilding this franchise the right way, Theo Epstein and company have set this team up for success over the next five years. The talent does not stop with the players on the major league roster.
While some of these prospects are still a few years away from reaching the majors, the Cubs are in no hurry to get these players ready. The North Siders are set at just about every position, making most of the remaining players expendable.
Not all of the prospects listed above will make it to the majors with the Cubs. That is not to say they won’t make it to the big leagues, it just means the Cubs are so deep that they may be traded to fill holes at higher levels.
The Cubs are overflowing with talent, and that’s the way Cubs fans like it.
