  1. Fresno is 4 games under .500. At the end of ST some were saying we were sending a big league down to triple A. They did look pretty good.

    Oh well.

    1. You care about W-L records in minor league ball?

    2. When your starting rotation is populated by the like of Shane Loux and Boof Bonser, your W-L record is not going to be good.

      The minors are all about individual performance.

  2. Ryder Jones signed on Monday. No mention of the terms. Nice to them get started with the signings, and landing a big fish right out of the gate is nice.

  3. I forgot to note that Gary Brown has usually struggled with each new level he's at, but up to now, has been able to figure out how to hit well at that level at some point and advance to the next level. I'm still a Gary Brown believer!

    1. Let's just say I'm now writing him off.
