Where We Stand

(click on chart for larger view)

Thought it would be fun to compare the Durham Bulls with our “parent” club as we come up on the All-Star break.

We’re 13 games above .500, the Rays are 7 games above .500. The only AAA-affliate of the American League East in our division is Norfolk (Orioles) and they are just behind us at 11 games over .500. The Orioles are 9 games below .500.

Other AAA affiliates of the American League East in the International League are Scranton/Wilkes Barre (Yankees) who are also 13 games above .500 and Pawtucket (Red Sox) who are 7 games above .500. The Toronto AAA affiliate is in the Pacific Coast League, the Las Vegas 51s, and they are 6 games below .500. As for why the Toronto AAA team is in the Pacific Coast League, I tried to get my head around that one a while back and couldn’t manage it.

For those who may happen upon this blog and who are unfamiliar with the International League, Charlotte is a White Sox affiliate and Gwinnett is a Braves affiliate.

Coming up on the next three games in Norfolk, it sure would help to win the series. That’ll be tough and, as usual in AAA ball, the two teams that played each other back in May are not the same teams that will be playing each other tonight.
