I will add links to various cool threads (meet the teams, prospect thread, mlb.tv sharing, .gif thread, etc) here as they are created.

Also here's a cool image from Galactic Acid from last year to help you dissect Spring Training performances. Just replace the 2019 with 2020 in your mind because I am too lazy to do it myself.

Will the FanGraphs Top 100 Prospects list cheer you up at all?

The writeup on Hoerner (46 overall) seems pretty decent:

quote:

Hoerner made some subtle swing changes after the draft that got him hitting for more power, and then he started branching out defensively in his second year. His dip in 2019 power output is likely injury-related.

When Hoerner was at Stanford, it seemed reasonable to hope that he could pass as a shortstop by simply making all the routine plays, plus a few based on his level of effort. It also seemed reasonable to project him in center field because of his plus-plus speed. The Cubs have decided to have it both ways; beginning in July of last year, after he returned from a wrist fracture, they began playing him at all three up-the-middle positions. Barring a rep-based leap in center field, he projects to be a 45 defender at all three spots, but the versatility is valuable on its own. This wasn’t the first developmental alteration the Cubs made. Hoerner’s swing changed not long after he was drafted. He was making lots of hard, low-lying contact at Stanford, but since signing he has added a subtle little bat wrap that has made a substantial difference in how he impacts the ball. He hit for much more power than was anticipated after he signed and may not have repeated the SLG in 2019 because of the wrist injury. He’s a lock regular for me and has some hidden value because of the defensive flexibility he provides, assuming he proves capable of handling both short and center.

The cubs will win maybe 80 games, trade either their best or second best player to save $10 million in luxury tax from their owners, who are among the 30 or so richest families in the history of human civilization, and i won't be able to watch any of it on TV.
