      I hope Pavlik and O'Malley dont get taken. Lots of potential right there.

        No one is going to take O'Malley, he might lefthanded but there are plenty of more talented one's exposed (even in our own organization).

            Pignatello and Campusano have a much greater chance of getting selected than Pavlik or O'Malley.

                How could they let Brownlie be unprotected? Isn't he supposed to have a bright future ahead of him?

                The one guy in our system I am the most excited about is Mark Pawelek. I can't wait to hear more about him and see him come up through the ranks, then make it to Wrigley one day.

                  Brownlie had a poor year and has never lived up to the hype of his first round selection. Since his arm injuries, his fastball has been flat and he's had poor control over his curve.

                      Yeah I've wrote up on him a little, nothing too recent though:

                      Pawelek named top prospect in Arizona League

                      Top Cub Lefties

                      In fact he's one of the guys, I plan on doing a scouting report on this offseason. So I'll let you know when those start popping back up.

                            The Cubs 40 man roster is filled so they won't be picking any players in the Rule V draft. Besides the last time we picked a player in the MLB phase of the Rule V draft was LHP Derek Thompson in 2002 from Cleveland. We've had players taken alot in the recent past:


                            2005 RHP Juan Mateo STL
                            2004 LHP Andy Sisco KC & LHP Luke Hagerty BAL traded to FLA
                            2003 RHP Jason Szuminski KC traded to SD
                            2002 OF Jason Dubois TOR

                            But only Sisco has stuck.
