Can't the same be said for every relevant Cubs pitching prospect of the past 15 years?

It's a better bet to say that we'll likely be a starter short due to injury or performance by that point.

Re: Jumping from High A to Majors?

Pujols got a few at bats above A+, but basically went straight from there to the majors.

Not a monstrosity, but Gus's Fried Chicken is the best fried chicken in the world and they opened one in Chicago. It's got some spice to it though. So beware. Originally from Memphis. I will say the Memphis one is better than the one they just put in here in KC, but it's still really good. http://g...
