Theo is so awesome, they are talking about possibly putting a brick wall covered in ivy in the outfield for one of the Minor League teams, to start teaching the outfielders how to work with it.
ANY advantage they can get, helping these kids, they are looking into it. I absolutely love it. Not only is he getting talent, he's getting that talent developed, and preparing them before they get to the minors. We've NEVER had this, ever.
Bryant, by the way, now has 43 homers, most in the Minors. Texas lefty Joey Gallo has 40.
Schwarber, who we just drafted in mid June, has 18 homers since the draft.
Russell has 12 since the trade.
Soler has been crushing the ball since he's been back, and looks like an easy September call up.
Also, the Cubs and Braves discussed a Jackson for Upton swap, but the Cubs said no.
Upton is owed 46 mil the next 3 years, Jackson just 22 the next two years. Theo.
