We don’t have any minor league games yet but the minor league press machines are starting up. In place of a DFR, here’s a link dump for this morning.
- If you want to see any of the announced rosters for the minors, Brian Walton has done the legwork to make them easier to read and be critical of.
- Autozone Park ranked the No. 1 park in the minors by BA.
- Steve Batterson has a Daryl Jones profile. Expect more of these if he has a big year. Jones (or Brett Wallace) is liable to be the new poster child for the farm system.
- You’ve probably seen by now but Perdomo was cut by the Giants. I’ll have more on this if and when his exact fate is known.
- Ben Badler at BA likes the Todd’s move to the pen. I wonder if he’s being considered as a closer candidate? There’s been past comments on his bulldog mentality. Pure speculation on my part though.
- Sam Freeman and Adam Ottavino profiles in the Springfield News-Leader.
PS – This isn’t a place to vent about last night’s game. Those comments can be made at VEB or not at all. They will get screened out.
PPS – There’s an exciting post in the works. It’s a topic that I think is still controversial but it’s well written and should generate some interesting discussion.
