Vine Line EXTRA: Previewing the February issue
This month marks the annual Minor-League Prospectus, introducing 50 names from the Cubs farm system. It’s the most thorough coverage you’ll find on the next faces of the cubs. Based on interviews and surveys sent to every coach, scout and administrator in our minor-league operations, we provide information on the top players in the organization and rank the top players in various baseball categories.
Who is considered to have the best raw speed in the system? Outfielder Tony Campana. Who has the best footwork behind the plate? Welington Castillo. Who has the most power? You’ll have to read the February issue to find out.
This issue of Vine Line also provides the who, why and how on the team’s five big off-season acquisitions. Learn about why switch-hitting outfielder Milton Bradley was the last piece of the lineup puzzle this off-season.
And you can’t miss the exclusive coverage and photography of the Winter Classic — the first hockey game ever to be played at Wrigley Field. It’s a stunning sight with a centerspread you’ll want to hang on your wall. You can see more of what’s in this issue by clicking the thumbnail to the left.
We’re hard at work planning for the March issue of Vine Line. … Can you believe baseball season is just around the corner?
