As the big league team faced the Twins tonight, the AAA, AA and High-A affiliates played the respective Twins’ affiliates. Freaky.

Low-A Charleston (5-0 win over Hickory)
Abe Almonte: 3 for 4, 1 2B, 1 RBI – left the game after ripping a double in the sixth, so maybe he aggravated that “lower body injury”

    I saw that Stephens was drafted in 2003…where the hell has he been?

  2. Joey says:

    You the best Mike, even after saying you didn’t feel like doin DotF today

  3. Matt says:

    So is Stephens for real? Plus, it seems like you better start giving Aceves more credit, he might just be a diamond in the rough. didn’t you say before that he was just a filler for starting pitching, nothing more?

  4. Ben K. says:

    What is Julianel doing pitching at AA at age 28? I hope he has a good backup plan.

  5. RustyJohn says:

    Do you think that Patterson has his room done up like Ray Finkle’s in Ace Ventura, only instead of Dan Marino his fury is directed towards Kyle Farnsworth.

    Mama Patterson, “Kyle Farnsworth should get gohnorrea and die.”

  6. allosiah says:

    its should die of gohnorrea and rot in hell

  7. McCaff says:

    Hey Mike, out of all the top prospects we have , who do you think will be the biggest STUD in the Bronx?

    • Mike A. says:

      Well, I saw JB Cox chillin’ with like, the four hottest women I’ve ever seen in my life at some bar in Omaha hours after he closed out the ’05 CWS. So I guess that gives him a head start.

      • McCaff says:

        With a last name like COX, why wouldnt he have the four hottest girls sitting with him?

        • john says:

          I actually confused his named as Brent J. Cox when the Yanks drafted him in 2005.

          BJ Cox.

          Sorry. The prepubescence in me couldn’t help it.
