I do think that the media would have made some mention of a Tennessee victory over Birmingham if that had happened because that would have played right into the Theo Epstein "loaded farm system" narrative.
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?
