What a drag for him, stuck back behind all the other talented 3rd base prospects.
Years ago, Christian Villanueva coulda been at least a Cubs Convention big wig.
Just kinda vanilla.
In yesterday's Baseball Perspectus Minor League Update, they mention all the home runs hit by Cubs prospects the night before: Bryant, Baez, Russel, Soler, and Vogelbach.
And left Villanueva off the list, even though he hit one too (off the awesomely named Tommy Toledo).
I hope something good happens for him some day.
In the meantime, Anthony Rizzo came out swinging against the Diamondbacks last night, hitting a couple gigantic 450 footers.
But the rest of the Cubs could only come up with 4 other hits and lost 4-5.
Still, pretty nice to turn on the tube and watch a game.
Tonight's late one will have Travis Wood trying to recapture his mojo which seems about a foot out of reach lately.
