Cubs Down of the Farm Report – 06/04/09

Here is your mid-week update for our Young Cubs. Unlike last week, this week has been very calm and the offenses of pretty much all the teams have been quiet. The Smokies have now lost 11 in a row and they are quickly falling way out of contention at 9.5 games back. Tony Thomas has seen his average fall over 70 points in just the past two weeks, but pretty much everyone in Tennessee has stopped hitting of late.

Don’t forget that you can check out my site at for daily updates of the big performers.
