TheRotoFeedChicago Cubs Top 10 Prospects for 2022 Fantasy Baseball

One glance at the Estimated Time of Arrival column here provides a lens into the Cubs timeline, or at least their next big wave of hitters. It s a promising group, and bah gawd it better be, given the club s firesale focused on these teenage, back-to-the-future lottery tickets. I m not calling them yellow, but we all saw them from the fight in 2021 like Marty McFly after the time jump, and the rewards for doing so look bountiful at the moment. But it s not all about a half-decade from now. To their credit, the club has a middle infield combo ready to roll in the superhero team of Punch and Judy. I m not sure which is Nick Madrigal and which is Nico Hoerner, but I do think the club would be thrilled to get ten total home runs from the pair, which could combine with 3B Patrick Wisdom, 1B Frank Schwindel and C Willson Contreras to create a passable big league infield. Add that to outfielders Ian Happ, Rafael Ortega, Jason Heyward and (eventually) Brennen Davis and the team looks like a rebuilder. Sorry, I meant to say contender there, I think, or something more than rebuilder because you really can squint and see the start of something above the Mendoza line here. It takes a lot of wishful thinking to see much more than that, but they do have an interesting group at the top level, at least on the position-player side, and their minor league system is the deepest of the six I ve ranked so far, so as the team s most famous fan might say, they ve got that going for them.

The ScoreWatch: Giants eliminated after blown check-swing call for final out of NLDS

The San Francisco Giants got a raw deal.Down 2-1 with two outs in the ninth inning in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Wilmer Flores appeared to hold off on an 0-2 pitch from Max Scherzer.However, upon appeal, first-base umpire Gabe Morales called it strike three on the swing. The game was over and the Giants were eliminated from the postseason. Absolutely unbelievable.Umpire Gabe Morales eliminated the Giants from the playoffs with a blown check swing call to Wilmer Flores.#Giants #Dodgers #LADvSF pic.twitter.com/8LiUDSR6fo Umpire Auditor (@UmpireAuditor) October 15, 2021 While there's no guarantee that Flores would have been able to follow through on his opportunity, he probably should have seen at least one more pitch in the at-bat. Check-swing appeals are not reviewable.Players immediately criticized the call on Twitter. Can t end that way. Make it reviewable. James McCann (@McCannon33) October 15, 2021 Bad call in a huge game wooooow Willson Contreras (@WContreras40) October 15, 2021 Worst call in sports- the check swing- .. terrible way to end this epic series/rivalry. Pitching is so good got to give the hitter a chance to say NO late. Kevin Pillar (@KPILLAR4) October 15, 2021 I mean not even close Tomas Nido (@tnido24) October 15, 2021 Can t end the game that way cmon Gabe Randy Dobnak (@Dobnak_) October 15, 2021 Wow just wow. Hard to finish like that. But that was an epic series. 10 (@SimplyAJ10) October 15, 2021 That was not even close to a swing Brett Anderson (@_BAnderson30_) October 15, 2021 Copyright © 2021 Score Media Ventures Inc.
