Do You Smell What the “Rock” is Cooking?

That was an easy one, of course I’m talking about Roderick “Rock” Shoulders, a 2011 25th Round Cubs draft pick.  Rock, a high school stand out at Brandon High School in Temple Terrace, Florida was originally a draft pick of the Boston Red Sox in 2010 but chose to go to college instead of turning pro.  After a productive season at State College of Florida – Manatee, Sarasota where he hit .318 in 52 at bats with 14 home runs and 58 RBI’s, not bad for a Freshman, he was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 2011 first year players draft in the 25th round.  More after the jump.

Philadelphia Phillies Logo - Phillies script in red underlined with blue stars dotting I's

Fresh off their first series win of the season against the Cardinals, the Cubs roll into Philly to take on the banged up Phillies.  It’s not your “normal” Phillies squad, at least at the plate, no Utley, no Howard, both are out hurt for extended periods of time.  The Phillies are just as good as they’ve always been with the likes of Hamels, Halladay, and Lee.  The four game set is huge for the Cubs given their success in their last series, it’s imperative to build on that series or else this could be a rough trip.  Full previews after the jump.
