Johnson struck out just 3 in last night's poll, with the majority picking 7-10 K's for him.
Iowa @Albuquerque (Dodgers): Jay Jackson vs. Nieve.
Tennessee @ Huntsville (Brewers) in a doubleheader: Dallas Beeler vs. Anundsen; Dae-Eun Rhee vs. ????.
Daytona has the day off.
@Peoria vs. Cedar Rapids (Angels): Jose Rosario vs. Crowley
Lester has given up one run or fewer in 11 starts this year. So I'd answer yes. Three of his last four starts were duds, yes. Not worried about him at all. Arrieta is concerning, to be sure. I look it at as, what he was doing was historic, so the regression was bound to happen. He showed in his start against the Mets that he's still capable, and I'd bet on him regaining his form.

How odd the stats:
Cubs 1st in pitching in MLB
2nd to last in hitting.
In May they were 1st in both.
we also gotta keep a long-distance eye on guys like jose paulino (ss-A) and preston morrison (A).
I'd love to add Carl Jr. to that group - he's got the stuff.
Wow - Pierce Johnson with an ERA of 8.01 in 42IP!
What a stud prospect! Must be pitching with a pierced johnson.
Looks like Ryan Williams is the only legit prospect there. That is sad...
Take THAT, Cardinals -- you beat Fernandez, we beat Sale.
I really like Lackey as a 6-inning pitcher.
Three amigos? Because the Dominican, the Venezuelan, and the Cuban?
Maybe the three-headed dragon?
Three amigos time?
he should hit more of those. that would be an ideal outcome. /moneyballs
Russell with 19 RBI in July so far. Grand Slams help.
He played with fire twice agains the Cubs -- unfortunately, the Cubs couldn't stop swinging.
