The affiliates went 5-0 on Saturday but Sunday was payback time as all affiliates came out on the wrong end.  In summary, Josh Banks took it on the chin, again, in part due to Cambridge native Scott Thorman.  New Hampshire lost their first game of the week as Izzy Ramirez had no run support.  Dunedin narrowly lost and Lansing made the score look a lot closer than it was, while Joey McLaughlin reminded fans of his father.  And from the oddity file, two of Dunedin's three runs were scored by hitters who struck out.

Yes, the headline took longer to write than the Minor League Update itself. If only the FSL had a team in Nassau, it would make more sense at the end.

Say, which is the greater number? Runs scored by the Blue Jays off Chad Harville last night, or total runs scored by the affiliates in three games? Hint: It's a trick question.

Am I referring to the fact that a bunch of Jay farmhands shut down the opposition? Or is it a topical reference to the "wicked bad storm" (to borrow a friend's phrase) that blew through here yesterday?

The bullpens played a big part in yesterdays games as the affiliates split.  In New Hampshire the bullpen turned a 6-5 lead with two outs in the ninth into an 8-6 loss.  In Dunedin a 6-1 lead for the Jays became 6-5 in a flash.  In Syracuse the bullpen had to pitch 7.2 innings after David Purcey had a bad day.  In Lansing the bullpen only had to pitch two innings to preserve a 2-0 lead.

Burnett started and got the win yesterday.............that would be Sean Burnett who defeated Syracuse.
