I never realized how much these reports rely on boxscores until I noticed who apparently started for Syracuse yesterday. Then I saw who finished the game for New Hampshire. Needless to say, they were names I didn't expect to see.

Yesterday, we had the prospect poll for the hitters. Today, it's the pitchers. Drawing the eligibility lines is a little unclear- what does one do with Janssen, Rosario, Taubenheim, McGowan, League and Marcum? Let's draw the line at the 25 man roster, which means Janssen, Rosario and Taubenheim are ineligible and McGowan, League and Marcum are eligible.

Three wins in four games.  Dustin McGowan pitched well for the Chiefs and was supported by lots of runs.  Chip Cannon and David Smith drove in four runs each as the Fisher Cats won, Cannon had two dingers.  Both Dunedin and Lansing have fallen out of first place in their divisions as the first half of the season is coming close to its end.  AJ Burnett starts tonight for the Chiefs.

It is a good time for a prospect poll, or, in our case, two polls, one for position players and one for pitchers. We will start with the position players. 2006 draftees, including Travis Snider, are ineligible. If you'd like to check statistics, career statistics are available here, and splits can be reviewed here.
