    Brett is currently sporting a .222/.309/.389 line in Iowa this year. This is his third year in Iowa. Not very promising right now.

    Josh Vitters is also struggling mightily as well. Vitters missed almost all of April with back spasm and since coming back has hit poorly.

      Keep hearing year after year that they will be coming...dont think its going to happen now...could foresee them being traded

        What is it about the Cubs farm system that seems to ruin promising prospects?

          The people who draft them in the first place are generally what is wrong with the Cubs farm system.

          The Cubs have a history of drafting raw skilled but toolsy positional players or a better word might be "athletic" players. Then on top of that the Cubs front office under MacPhail and then Hendry has generally been rather small and thus teaching these raw players and getting them to develop their skills has been rather difficult.

            The problem with Jackson is the same problem that hasn't changed. He's hitting a lot of high average balls, but at the same time he's striking out a lot. It's frustrating, because the kid does have so much talent. One good thing is that contrary to when this was originally posted, the Cubs have a lot of legitimate prospects now.

              Perhaps coaching is an issue too...try to fix what is broke...otherwise why invest so much time and money in these prospects

                The hall of fame looks distant right now.....

                I like to believe Baez has more talent then Jackson, but those first couple monthes that big swing was a bit alarming...
