I think those numbers are Boise & Peoria

Quite a few of the Cubs pitchers from 08 draft are doing quite well. Let's hope they don't drink the same juice that Brownlie, Pawalek, Christiansen, Johnson, Jones, Hagerty, Huseby did.

You might find this interesting Bockstock:

BLAST FROM THE PAST

• Bobbie Brownlie, rhp, Nationals. Brownlie's days as a Cubs top prospect are long gone. The 2003 first-round pick fell so far that he made a trip through the independent leagues, but has been reborn as a successful Double-A starter in his second stint in affiliated ball. Brownlie, 27, once had a fastball that touched 96 mph, but now he's lucky to get much above 90 mph. The velocity he once had may never come back, but he has learned how to use his changeup and curveball to keep hitters off balance. Brownlie improved to 8-0, 3.38 with Double-A Harrisburg. It's all about avoiding the big inning these days for Brownlie—he's given up 11 home runs and struck out only 38 in 72 innings, but he's allowed more than two runs only once in his past five starts. ... "

Mark Prior ultra-lite.

I remember hearing about Brownlie not to long ago while I was reading my SI. The SI with Tim Lincecum on the cover went into the science of pitching and pitchers machanics and what are warning signs of arm trouble and so on. They talked about how Brownlie wowed scouts with his fastball but the people looking at the sciences saw major red flags with his delivery and when I read that I was like "Wow whoever drafted him is a sucker." Yeah but anyway I guess maybe more teams should pay attention to what these scientists and people around the game are starting to realize are warning signs for injury.

There's a really good page somewhere where this sports doctor breaksdown the myth of Prior's perfect mechanics and breaks down his delivery, comparing it in college and 05 using slow motion.

If I remeber, he basicly said Prior was doomed from the start to be completely healthy; between 04-05 after his first round of injuries his delivery was even less open and threw more cautiously and this apparently was alot worse.
