One Last Fortnight on the Farm – Vol. 12

Last for 2022 anyway. The only team still in Action is Buffalo who, as you read this, might have two or three games remaining – and if anything remarkable happens I’ll add an edit to their sub-section – but all else is done. I’ll try to note here not only the playoff results where applicable…

Weekend Rambling: The 2023 Offence

Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird that baseball doesn’t have an ideal term for the non-pitcher part of the roster? You can say “the fielders” but there’s also a DH, you can say “the lineup” but there are bench players, you can say “the offence” but almost every player has to be…

Fortnight on the Farm, Vol. 7

At the All-star break (throughout the full season leagues) is not really “halfway home” – we did that two weeks ago – but because it’s unusually late in the month, you can look at performance in July as a decent sample and maybe jumping off to a larger one, but of course, in a few…

Fortnight on the Farm, Vol. 6

As I write today, the MiLB season’s first half is in the books and the end of the month of June just passed. So while I certainly note the high likelihood of repeating myself, it’s a good time to take note of the high-profile guys who took a step back (and those who didn’t)  while…

Fortnight on the Farm, Vol. 5

With the minor league seasons roughly a week away from the halfway point in their schedules, we’ve gotten a better data set about who’s building their prospect status and who’s more an organization filler guy.
