Adam Brett Walker II is the first player in the MiLB this season to reach 100 RBI. After his sac fly on Monday - he stands at 103 RBI. The question is:
Can he break the CR Kernels Franchise record with 20 games remaining?
That total ranks third in the modern day (since 1949) history of the Cedar Rapids baseball club. He is 10 behind Larry Barnes, who played for the Kernels in 1996. John Tanner is the modern day record holder with 121 set in 1949.

Leads the Midwest League or Top 3 Ranking in: HRs / RBIs / Slg% / OPS% / TBs / & Runs.
Walker gets jumped over by this years 3rd rounder who is only 2 months younger (Turner) and in Rookie ball. He is the 7th ranked guy on his own on team? and still behind 2 guys who have yet to pitch this season (Bard & Chargois)?
Am I the only one who finds this just wrong?
Adam Brett Walker II and Jonathan Murphy played next to each other in the OF @ Jacksonville University (FL) but came up short in terms of an ASUN title.

Josh Burris last game experience involved a game tying HR in the bottom of the 9th and an extra inning Walk Off Grand Slam (Elizabethton 2012 Championship Game). In his first game of the 2013 season - Burris experiences a game with a crazy and similar ending.
I am curious as to who - each of you see as breakout "Players to Watch" at each minor league level.
Elizabethton - Besides new 2013 draft prospects - I see Joshua Burris as the player who should have moved up a level and as the player who will still impress.
Cedar Rapids - Adam Brett Walker was Top 5 in Appalachain League in HRs (1st)- Runs Scored (4th) - RBIs (4th) - Total Bases (5th) - Triples (tied with 3rd). He is my stat line prospect for the MWL in 2013. If he

Does anybody know when the minor league spring training schedule is released? I was hoping to come down to Ft. Myers and see some of the lower prospects play. I can't plan my days if I don't know thier schedules? Best week with most home games, etc.?
