Although New Hampshire and Dunedin suffered losses, the rest of the affiliates picked up victories on what was a fairly good night on the farm. Two of the better pitching prospects suffered losses as Zach Stewart and Chad Jenkins didnít have strong outings. However, several players continued to swing relatively hot bats, including a couple of outfielders in the low minors.

I was in Auburn for two games last week and here are my impressions of the players I noticed.  Two days is a short time to follow a team, pro scouts follow a team for four or five days, so I could have seen players at their best or their worst.  You have been warned!

A pretty boring night on the farm resulted in a couple of wins, a couple of losses, a couple of non-games............ oh, excuse me, I drifted off there for a minute. Boy, am I ever not selling the click-through, eh? But hey, at least that title is pretty good (awful).

Great day on the farm as the affiliates went 5-1 thanks to strong pitching as only 9 runs crossed the plate in six games.  The collective bullpens were the true stars allowing just a single run in 20 combined innings.

A casual observer would say that the boys on the farm need to work with their hitting coaches to limber up the lumber and produce some runs.  In 8 games on Saturday their were only 16 runs scored and half of those came in games won by the D-Jays and the Babiest (GCL) Jays.

The Auburn Doubledays game was postponed because the Connecticut team bus broke down and they were unable to get home to play the game.  Dunedin were rained out so both teams will play doubleheaders on Saturday.  

New Hampshire played nineteen innings and lost.  Las Vegas just had to play nine to lose.  Lansing won a close game.  Daniel Arcila of the GCL Jays had a double, a triple and a home run, but no single, as the GCL Jays won.

Three of the five baseball games on the farm last night went into extra innings, combining for 40 innings. Meanwhile, the two games that didnít go into extra innings very well could have, as Nashville scored 3 in the 9th inning to take a victory away from Las Vegas. In Auburn, the game was tied going into the 9th inning. Brooklyn scored a run in the 9th to take the lead, before Auburn scored two in the bottom of the inning for a walk-off win.

Carlos Perez showed that JP Arencibia is not the only catcher with some power, Perez doubled and tripled and drove in four runs to pace the only win on the farm.  All the teams above Auburn lost, some badly.  There were some scattered good performances but it has been a sad week on the farm with most teams seeming to hit the skids at the same time.  It's either the dog days or opposite time where the affiliates play badly when the Jays play well.

The biggest news from the minors didnít come on the field yesterday, but came off of it when it was announced that the Jays decided to promote JP Arencibia to fill in for John Buck, who was forced to the 15-day DL after taking a foul ball off his thumb. While Las Vegas, perhaps missing one of their star bats, lost big to Memphis, New Hampshire shut out their opposition, while Dunedin won a slugfest. The Lugnuts were shut out, but Auburn doubled Vermont and the GCL Blue Jays won a tight affair against the GCL Pirates.
