If you find yourself here, I’m sure you fit into one of two distinct categories:
1. You’re already deep into Cubs prospect fandom, following the system in pretty great detail. You frequent North Side Bound, are a member of online prospecting communities, have your favorite players, and are a nerd like me.
2. You are a Cubs fan that is coming to the realization that the farm system shows a whole lot more promise than the Major League product. The prospects will find themselves up in Chicago eventually so you might as well start following them now.
Regardless of which category you fit into, this post will serve as a guide to help you keep up with all the Cubs prospect action you could ever need. Follow these people on Twitter or keep up with them on their respective platforms, and you’ll be able to nerd out about Cubs prospects like me by year’s end!
