Do they start extra innings with a runner on second in the minors now?

 

Yup, this is at least the 2nd year that they have done that.

Will be interesting to see where the staff goes with minors Hitter of the Year now that the two obvious front runners in Diaz and Davis are gone. Assuming there is a bias for the full-season affiliates (CR, Ft Myers, Pensacola, Rochester), the pickings are pretty slim...lots of poor to mediocre results combined with injury-aborted breakouts...and a sprinkle of 30+ year-old journeymen. Probably this next/last month determines the honor. At this point in time, I'd go with Travis Blankenhorn. And wondering when Rooker is going to come back from the worse groin injury ever.

 

Pitching-wise, there are more guys out there with shinny numbers...but not necessarily the names you would want or have expected at the beginning of the year. Right now, I'd go with Randy Dobnak.

It's adding that extra column to all the databases...and re-writing win% formulas.

 

Reports are the tech workers refuse to do it until they're provided with meaningful defensive data. I'm on their side on this one. :)

THERE'S NO TYING IN BASEBALL!

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

Funny! I can literally heat some former coworker saying this!
