Yankees prospect Gary Sanchez helps Trenton Thunder win Double-A Eastern League Championship; what teams are most (and least) likeable; our plans for the fall and winter.

***Good afternoon prospect watchers. The heat has finally broken here in Kansas and it is 75 degrees today. Ah, September. The only bad thing is that the minor league season is winding down as the post-seasons come to a close.

We will keep the daily discussion thread operational through the winter with news links and discussion questions, plus news from the Arizona Fall League once that gets going.

***Yesterday's Minor League Ball Gameday thread.

***New York Yankees prospect Gary Sanchez hit a go-ahead single and scored a run in the Trenton Thunder's 11-4 victory over the Harrisburg Senators yesterday, giving the Yankees affiliate the championship of the Double-A Eastern League.

***Grant Brisbee rates all 30 major league franchises on likability. Do you agree with his ratings? What is your least-favorite team, the organization that you love to root against? Why do you hate them so much? What have they ever done to you?

***Al Yellon at Bleed Cubbie Blue writes about being a Chicago Cubs fan. What is your favorite team? Why do you love them so much, and what have they ever done for you?

***Andrew Ball at Faketeams discusses Cleveland Indians 2013 first-round pick Clint Frazier and his amazing bat speed.
