The farm teams allowed a combined total of six runs in five matches, which included an AA doubleheader. The farm system offences only scored 2.66 runs a game last night, but on a night where the pitching allows only 1.2, it was good enough for a 4-1 record. If you’re a fan of fine pitching, last night would have been a great time to watch any one of Toronto’s affiliates.

The first half of May was good for the Chiefs, 8 wins and 4 losses, but then they hit the skids faster than the KC Royals and they went 4-13 the rest of the month.  For the full month the record was 12-17 and after two months their record is 22-30.

Is there more rain in the US Northeast this year or something? I think New Hampshire's played more doubleheaders than singleheaders this year.

Also, I have an incredible opportunity that you cannot miss!

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.

The weather warms up and so do the hitters. This review is mostly a positive one, so let's all erase April from our memories.

The farm affiliates were all on the road and fought well, going 5-0 on the night. The Romeros, Ricky and Davis, each pitched well for a win.

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.

In a rather lacklustre night across the farm the only question left is, will a player with one total base get a star? If so, which star? Read on to find out….

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?

And yesterday is weaving in and out
Two big leaguers have interesting days in the minors, while Lansing gets it done with pitching and New Hampshire with hitting.

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.
