Hello Athletics Nation,
Cubs fan here. As you may or may not know, Tuesday night the Peoria Chiefs (yes, you saw them on ESPN the other day...hopefully since the crazed pitcher Castillo is likely out of baseball we will not have any more incidents, as that was horrible) will be taking on the Kane County Cougars at Wrigley Field, in what is believed to be the first minor league game ever at Wrigley. Over at the SBN counterpart Bleed Cubbie Blue, a few people were wondering what the Kane Co. team looks like prospect-wise; I read Paul Thomas's top 30 list and it looked to be by far the weakest stop in the A's organization. Is this true? Who should we be looking at as interesting players for Kane County? I'd be happy to report back after the game if you guys are wondering about how anyone in particular looks, I'm guessing not too many readers of AN attend Midwest League games. Any info would be appreciated, pretty much all I know is that Josh Vitters' brother is on the Kane Co. squad; we had heard Josh should be called up to Peoria in time for this game, but he has been out for about a week with a sprained ankle, so not sure if that is still the plan. Anyhow, thanks and good to see Gallagher with a solid start overall for the A's, although Murton certainly has not done anything except make it look like the Cubs actually knew what they were doing by benching him for 2 years.
