Chris Archer

If the Cubs have a strength in the minors scouting department it's picking out rough pitchers and turning them into true prospects.

Archer now has a sub-2 era between Daytona and Tennessee. He's wild sometimes, but seems to have the stuff that doesn't generate alot of hits or good contact to compensate for his wildness(5 HR in 120 IP this year), kind of like how Z used to be pitch.

I wouldn't hesitate to put him as the #2 prospect on the Cubs and he's got a good chance of being a top 100 prospect this year.
Whether it comes from [the media] or even comes from some fans, who are deservedly upset at a given point, it's really just noise. If we let it affect our decision making, shame on us
