BTW, do the Cubs have any decent pitching prospects at any levels of the minors? More to the point, do they have any pitching prospects that are ahead of Erik Johnson or Andre Rienzo? Or, for that matter, Jake Petraica, Daniel Webb or Tyler Danish?
Bruce Levine probably would have mentioned it. He's the leader of the Friends of Theo. I'm not sure anyone else would care. A Double-A series really doesn't merit any mention from the Chicago press.
