Cubs Down on the Farm Report – 05/04/09

Here is your end of the week update from the Cubs’ Minor League System. Weather wrecked havoc on the teams’ schedules throughout the weekend, with the Smokies getting their last three games rained out. Iowa’s game on Saturday was also rained out and their game against the Redbirds in Memphis on Sunday was suspended in the fourth inning with the Cubs up 2-0.

As always you can check out my site at for daily updates.
