Week 21: Out of and Back into First Place

The Durham Bulls did not do all that well against the team with the best record in the IL, the Nashville Sounds (Milwaukee). They only took 2 games out of the 6. But they did seem to get past the defensive woes that had been troubling them down in Norfolk and at the beginning of the week. Too bad the pitchers didn't get the memo, especially the starters. But Nashville's a good team and they showed it.

Meanwhile, the LeHigh Valley IronPigs have put together a decent run, enough to more than catch up with the Bulls.

The season is wrapping up. The Bulls have only two more home stands and just 27 games (against just 4 teams) left in the season.


The Bulls are off to Charlotte this week. The Knights (White Sox) have had a really tough year. I do have to wonder, though, if those pitching numbers have something to do with them being the guinea pig for baseball's robo-ump experiment. I didn't watch any of the games the last time they were in Charlotte. I'm going to try to do so this week. 

Union for Minor Leaguers?

ESPN and the New York Times have stories about a new effort to break into MLB's control over minor league players.
