And One More Thing … Cubs

You can check out my review of the Cubs organization here.

It’s hard to imagine a guy who leads the organization in homers and RBIs gets forgotten completely. And yet, such is the case with Jake Fox, who topped the Cubs system with 31 homers and 105 runs batted in. He slugged .556 for the season as well. Granted, most of it came at the Double-A level after he got demoted from Triple-A. He turned 26 this year and it was his third stint at the Double-A level. The 2003 third-rounder was a catcher once upon a time and now kind of moves all over the place defensively. He’s not on the 40-man roster, meaning anyone can take him in the Rule 5 draft, though he was eligible in previous years and had no takers.

Unfortunately for Fox he is on the 40 man. Why with numbers like he put up this season did he not have a September call up? Oh that’s right-they are the Cubs!
