@RandyFix3 @I_LoveWisdongs @terron_francis @BleacherNation Owen Caissie isn't hitting reasonably well at Class A? He was the Cubs MiLB player of the month in May. He's 3.5 years younger than league average too. Like you're entitled to an opinion. But it needs to be grounded in facts. https://t.co/11lSgIXXmj

Reaction: 1. The small ball movement in the cubs system is real. 2. Owen Caissie is the real deal and so is Herz for the most part. 3: we have so much good pitching in the system right now (for the most part) and the future is bright.
On the other hand, the 15 percent of tweets that are already spiking the football on a successful MLB career by Pete Crow-Armstron, Kevin Alcantara, Owen Caissie, or whoever else, are premature.
The Twitter Cubs content that seems valuable is that that acknowledges reality...
You think Owen Caissie got all of this one? 111 mph exit velocity on a pitch that may have been a ball inside and keeps it well fair.
If this dude puts it all together, he is going to be a menace for the #Cubs. https://t.co/Ya93yat9PT
@MJMcElwee @gailog The Cubs are treating Owen Caissie like they expect a lot from him. I was surprised he got promoted to South Bend. PCA at least made sense. He was smacking the shit out of the ball.
But what do I know. Caissie has been doing better than PCA in South Bend in the past 2 weeks
@DavidHaugh @mullyhaugh show Dustin this cat. One of the two studs we got back from Darvish. Owen Caissie can hit and we got a SS Reggie Preciado that is a great prospect as well. At least two will turn out to be players for the cubs. https://t.co/2RjFPyMyw5
OH MY OWEN CAISSIE
111 MPH exit velo, 400 ft, CRUSHED. Cubs lead 3-2!

Cubs prospect Owen Caissie on PCA, how he rebounded from a slow April to a post a big month of May and which teammate has impressed him the most.
More from his interview with @LanceBroz:
JUST IN: #SBCubs OF Owen Caissie (@owen_caissie) & LHP DJ Herz (@DavidjohnHerz) each have picked up May honors.
Caissie has been named the @Cubs Minor League Player of the Month, & Herz was presented as the Midwest League Pitcher of the Week.
STORY ➡️ https://t.co/HfBjyOAHK2 https://t.co/mHaj6QnrNQ
Cubs named OF Owen Caissie minor-league player of month & RHP Luis Devers minor-league pitcher of month for May.
Caissie hit .313 with 6 2B, 4 HR, 26 RBI, 7 BB & .910 OPS in 23 games at High A.
Devers had 1.48 ERA, 28 strikeouts & .176 average avg against in 5 starts at Low A.
@FrontOffice70 @pmac1980 @PJ_Mooney Owen Caissie is a great example of the Cubs successfully challenging a player. High A to start the season, struggled in April, crushed it in May. I'm guessing he'll be in AA before the season is done.
