That was a long three days for everyone involved, I will try to break it down to the best of my ability for you. It’s obvious that the Cubs needed to fill their system with pitching depth and it appears that they did so.
The Cubs had 42 picks in this years draft, 40 round plus two compensation (or sandwhich) picks. In years past the draft has been 50 rounds, under the new CBA the rounds were reduced to 40.
