    Figure it'd be a good idea to have a general thread for minor league shit. I'm going to try to pay a bit more attention this year and am often seeing interesting things on Twitter.

    All 4 full-season teams play tonight.

    All 4 rosters are now on their official MiLB web sites.

    No surprises.

    Any chance Moncada isn't called up after whatever that date is that gives him the extra year of control?

    I can't imagine they wouldn't. He doesn't really belong in AAA.

    He needs to stay down past the break in all likelihood to avoid Super 2.

    Delmoncio currently has a 308/364/473 slash line at Charlotte. Probably worthwhile to see what he can do at the MLB level as Asche is a waste of a roster spot.

    I think today's Knights game was on CSN. If so, I can watch it via DVR tonight and see Giolito get lit up, while Moncada/Delmoncio/Burdi dominate.

    2) Gleyber Torres

    The Cubs traded Torres and 3 other players for a Chapman rental. Something to keep in mind as the Chicago media talks about trading Quintana to the Cubs.

    Well hey, Chapman almost blew the World Series for them a couple times... so great trade.

    This is a dude with high first round talent who fell apart in college only to be Cooplfxmed Soxlfxmed last year.

    He was at one point, considered a possible 1st overall pick and then he had a terrible final college season where he lost his control that saw him drop.

    I think doubleheaders in the minors are only 7 innings as a rule.

    Yeah, Boston definitely made the deal thinking there was a short window they should be able to dominate the East.

    Hopefully Dombrowski looks like a dummy 3-4 years down the road.

    If Sale keeps pitching like an ace I'd say the trade itself isn't a regret for the Red Sox. If they don't win in that time frame it'll be because they didn't do anything to address the team around him. They lost Ortiz but didn't really replace him and now are last in HRs and 12th in SLG % in the AL. They decided to put faith in David Price not being shitty and Rick Porcello continuing to be an ace and not a 4th starter like he was before last season and they were wrong on both accounts.

    If they continue with the team they have with Sale, they'll essentially be in the same position the White Sox were in: wasting an ace with a shitty team. Except they gave up the farm for him, as opposed to us just drafting the guy and wasting him.

    The Red Sox are still a contending team. Only 3 games out of 1st and 1st in the Wild Card standings. Of course, it is still early and they could flop like the White Sox did when they had Sale and went for it.

    If only there was a team looking to dump a veteran 3B who is a righty pull hitter with good power. That would be such a perfect match.

    Instead, their starting 3B today is .189 / .244 / .254 for his career.
    EDIT: Reverse jinxed him. He just hit a 2-R HR off of Quintana.

    Draft means the end of the 1st half for low-A ball and the start of part-season rookie leagues. A bunch of low-A guys will move up, some guys above them will get cut to make room, and all of this is to make room for the new draft class which is continually being signed.

    Great Falls starts today with a roster featuring. RHP Chris Comito, IF Luis Curbelo, and most of the guys from the 2017 draft class who already signed, including 3rd-round CF Luis Gonzalez and 5th-round RHP Tyler Johnson. Roberts has been playing for the DCL White Sox but will move up. AZL White Sox hasn't started yet.

    :waiting: for Burger, Sheets, Skoug, etc.
