Playoff update for the teams on the bubble:


Buffalo won - tragic number still 2 with 4 games left

New Hampshire lost - tragic number now 1 with 4 games left

Vancouver won - still one game ahead, 2 on the tie-break, with 4 left

More should be said about Richard Urena, who's having a tremendous season in the DSL and GCL as a 17 year old.

It's looking like we're going to be yelling at each other for the next 5 years or so as to which one of these SS is the Jays' SS of the future. Should be fun.

Well, it most likely wont be Barreto considering that no one thinks he can stay at SS.  Lugo may or may not outgrow the position.  Urena is the only one of the three that definitely looks like a future SS.  That is, until Gudino hits the system next year.

not giving up on a raw athlete's defensive potential at 17 quite yet, but yeah, Urena's the only one who projects plus potential defense at SS.

Might end up with a 2020 infield of 3B Lugo - SS Urena - 2B Barreto in the end.

Until a Shortstop physically proves he absolutely can't play the position, I'm not supporting anyone who is premature which such pronouncements. Did you forget Cal Ripken Jr. and A-Rod?

Until a Shortstop physically proves he absolutely can't play the position

Many who have seen him are under the impression that he has already shown he cant play the position.

Did you forget Cal Ripken Jr. and A-Rod?

Ripken was 6'4 220 and A-Rod is 6'3 220+.  There was doubt that those two would stick at SS because their physical profiles suggested that they would likely outgrow the position.  Barreto's does not fit in that category.  People dont think he can stick because his footwork is apparently bad and he simply doesn't look like he possesses the natural instincts.

Buehrle's ERA just dropped below 4. Very impressive, considering how his season began.

Daniel Norris with a great High A debut. 5 innings with 1 hit and 2 walks with only 1 strikeout. No runs. At this point, he's worked his way into the Top 3 behind Sanchez and Osuna. Matt Smoral.:.we're waiting on you.

And Deck McGuire is flirting with a no-no in the 6th.

I’ve watched some games on TV lately and have found three things to like:  Ryan Goins is first.  I like the way he carries himself.  Confident but not cocky.  And he seems to have real baseball sense.  Second thing is Jack Morris.  I didn’t expect to like him back in April, but I find that I do.  He knows when to speak and when to shut up.  And what he has to say is usually to the point and interesting.  He seems to work well with Buck, too.  Maybe even improving Buck a bit -- or am I getting soft in my dotage?  Third is Mark Buerhle:  the guy’s a real pro.

Sad news today about Seamus Heaney, surely the finest poet writing in English.  A splendid reader of his own works.
Richard S.S. - Friday, August 30 2013 @ 11:57 PM EDT (#278580) #
Sorry about Seamus Heaney. Writers of the written word are a gem to behold. I am a voracious reader, but found too much available to even faintly get a sniff of it all. I specialized early in my life with SF and Fantasy. But not always.
