Minor League Ball Gameday Discussion, May 11

Shelby Miller - Dilip Vishwanat

Happy Saturday everyone. I'm attending a friend's college graduation today. Tomorrow is Mother's Day. What special plans do you have for the mother in your life?

We will return to full operational status on Monday. Here are some things I have planned for this coming week.

***Player notes for the guys I saw in Quad Cities. This will include Byron Buxton, Niko Goodrum, Adam Brett Walker, Jorge Polanco, Travis Harrison, Brett Lee, Teoscar Hernandez, Ariel Ovando, Austin Elkins, Brian Holmes, and John Neely. I will probably split this into normal "player notes" for the big prospects and a team summary to include the more marginal guys.

***2013 Mock first round. I hope to have this done by Friday but it may (or may not) be sooner.

***I'd like to get an All Questions Answered thread in but I'm not sure on the day. I will keep you informed.

***Sleeper prospects for the 2013 draft.

***I started working for Bill James 20 years ago this month. There's a big story to tell here, and I'm working on it.

***We still need someone to run the Arizona Diamondbacks for the 2013 Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft.

***Here is yesterday's Minor League Ball Gameday thread.

***Three homers yesterday from Houston Astros prospect Domingo Santana, currently hitting .264/.366/.598 with seven homers, with 13 walks, 34 strikeouts in 87 at-bats for Double-A Corpus Christi. I still love his power, still love his youth, and still worry about his contact issues.

***I'd say that Shelby Miller is pretty damn good, wouldn't you? Just remember, a year ago right now he was getting lit up in Triple-A and everyone was wondering if he was injured or if advanced minor league hitters had exposed him.

***Today's slate of minor league games.
