The minor league regular season ends in a little less than 3 weeks, so let’s get you updated on the standings…

Eric Duncan: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB – 8 for his last 20 with 3 doubles, 1 triple, 1 homer & 6 RBIs…sorry Eric, won’t fool me this time
Alberto Gonzalez: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 BB – walk was intentional
Jose Cruz Jr.: 0 for 4, 1 BB, 1 K – this is pathetic, the Yanks signed Cruz to take playing time away from…Erubiel Durazo! how messed up is that? (walk was intentional)

Noah Hall & JT LaFountain: both 1 for 2, 2 BB – Hall scored a run when he smacked a 2-run homer
Tyler Clippard: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 6 K – nice start, but he looks like he’s going to cry in his Trenton mugshot

High-A Tampa (4-3 loss to Dunedin, walk-off style) 33-24 in the second half, 3.5 games out of first (3rd place)

Joe Muich: 2 for 3, 1 2B, 2 RBI
Paul Patterson: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 6-10 GB/FB – not bad for a spot start from a middle reliever
Steven Artz: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K – he’s allowed 2 hits & no walks (18 K) in 11.2 IP since signing out of Indy ball

Adam O.: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 1 WP – have you been hangin’ out with Tyler Clippard?
Nick Chigges: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K - 5 hits & 2 walks in his last 12 IP with 14 K

Rookie GCL Yanks had a scheduled off day. They’re 38-15 and lead the division by 9 games.

No DotF from me the next few days (maybe Joe’s up to the task), I’ll be making the trip up to Orange County each night to catch the Yanks taking on the Angels.

    Stephen Artz aka Edwar Jr has been a nice signing. I wonder how Chris Farley is doing. Eric Duncan continues to tease us again.
