The Cubs' AA club, West Tennessee, features some of the most exciting talent in Chicago's minor league system. Yesterday several of the bigger names put together great games in a 8-1 win over Mississippi (formatting stolen from the excellent Baseball America Prospect Report):

               AB  R  H RBI W  K  AVG
Craig, 1B-3B 4 0 2 2 0 0 .211
Murton, LF 4 0 2 0 0 1 .400
Pie, CF 4 1 3 1 0 1 .381 - HR (1)
Sing, RF-1B 2 1 1 1 2 0 .400 - HR (4)

Ryu 5.0 4 0 0 4 0.00
Brandon Sing is off to a ridiculous start, hitting 375/500/1.118 with four home runs after the first week or so of games. He's also apparently playing a bit in right field--a wise move considering the Cubs' number one prospect, Brian Dopirak, is a first baseman hot on Sing's tail.

It occurred to me the other day the Cubs are screwed if D-Lee goes down with an injury. Do you know if Dopirak would be ready for a call up or does he have too much to work on?

Oh, Dopirak is several years away from being ready, I'd guess.

Yes, the Cubs would be screwed if Lee went down, to an extant--though Hollandsworth or Dubois could play first.
