Kyle Schwarber Continues to Roll

It’s been a busy few weeks for Kyle Schwarber.  Drafted by the Cubs in early June, goes to Boise Schwarberand demolishes the pitching there, now he finds himself at Kane County, and he continues to mash.  Schwarber is slugging with the best of them right now, and tonight was no different as he went 2-for-3 with a double, his first Low A home run, a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored.

Schwarber is now 15-for-26 as a professional ballplayer, that includes two doubles, a triple, five home runs, and twelve RBI… good Lord.

Video of the home run coming as soon as it is available. We will be at the Cougars game on Sunday, I will get plenty of pictures.

Bryant Debuts in Iowa With a Blast! (Updated with VIDEO)

Kris Bryant made the wait for the Iowa Cubs game today well worth it.  After a lengthy rain delay, and three empty at bats from Bryant, he delivered.  After falling behind 0-2 in the count, Bryant worked it full and drove the next pitch over the right field wall for his first AAA home run.

The kid is special, the fans in Tennessee learned that quickly, now the fans in Iowa will figure it out, then… well, Chicago.

Here are a couple videos of the HR…

Remember when I said that it will be fun to see Bryant get a hold of one?  It was yesterday that I said it, he did today.  His twenty-first home run of the season went off the scoreboard, it’s June 8th by the way, twenty-one homers.

If you want to know how strong Baez is, watch this video.  He hits this one handed, with a knee almost on the ground to the opposite field.  Baez is getting hot, this was his eighth home run of the season, and he now has his average up to .222 on the season after a horrendous start.
