It may be true the Chicago Cubs do not have a top farm system in baseball, or more than a couple of top pitching prospects in the pipeline, however, the future is bright with a couple of up-and-coming hurlers.

Perusing through the endless amount of content I have created surrounding the Cubs and their farm system, I somehow missed the boat on a couple of young hard-throwing right-handers who have seemingly improved exponentially over their first two years in professional baseball.

While the two together are probably still four to five years away from reaching the Show, the future is a bright one for both young kids and a step in the right direction for the development of the pitching core as we head into a new decade of Cubs baseball.

Trusting Theo Epstein has become more difficult in the last couple of years. The state of the Cubs feels almost like an asteroid off course hurtling toward the earth. Okay, maybe this is an overreaction, but Wrigleyville is in full tilt, especially as the rest of the division continues to make moves.

Fear not though, because while we may have to wait for what feels like an eternity, at least there is a level of talent in the system that still exists, and that should give us solace.
