Cool story on the first woman high A minor league manager. Be sure and watch the video, which includes a woman coach in the Cubs system. Gotta be very inspirational for young female ballplayers.

Fernando Cruz hitting videos are floating around Twitter.  He looks pretty fun.

Keith Law's top 100 is out today with three Cubs:

26. Pete Crow-Armstrong
29. Kevin Alcantara
50. Brennan Davis

I think that's a pretty standard take on PCA and Davis. But he says he thinks Alcantara has the upside of a top 5 prospect in baseball in the next year or two, which is encouraging.
