For failing to sign top overall pick Brady Aiken, the Houston Astros will get the 2nd pick in next year's draft on top of their regular pick.

I don't know how to find that type of data easily, but I am guessing it's far from historical. Just looking at the Cubs in recent years Carlos Marmol was 5.98 over 10 starts in 2006. Sean Marshall was 6.52 over his final 10 starts in 2006. Lots of rookies struggle like that every year for a dozen or so games when they debut, especially for bad teams who have nothing to lose and just want to get a look at them.
Jeremy Null pitches 3 shutout innings of middle relief for Boise Hawks and gets a win.
Null throwing zeros. What a great name for a pitcher.

Felix Doubront is scheduled to make his Cubs debut Aug 30th in StL. Doubront will make his final rehab start for AA Tennessee.
Mooney also saying not to expect Cubs to sign Rusney

How to fix Edwin Jackson...Special Baseballs.

Olt to Iowa DL with hamstring strain....
Edwin Jackson -- How do you have a 94 mph fastball and (by all accounts) a wipeout slider and still get hit around like that? It's like he is aiming for their bats -- like that one South Park episode where the little league teams were trying to lose on purpose by hitting the other teams' bats so they could go home and not have to play in the tournament any more. I'll bet the Giants don't square up the ball as often in batting practice.
Addison Russell 2-2, 2 run HR. Shark who?
EJax would be the worst reliever in history based on his inability to get outs in his 1st innings.
Jim Hendry in the crowd at Wrigley tonight (watching Baez).
Jacob Turner will start the suspended game tomorrow.
