Welcome to the Gameday!

Hello everybody, welcome back to the Minor League Ball Gameday. Please also look into purchasing John's Prospect Retrospective Project if you haven't already. It honestly looks like a great read and it's for the low low price of just $9.95. I hope you guys don't mind if I leave this here for the foreseeable future as a little reminder to those who haven't pre-ordered. It will be released this Sunday, September 7th for your viewing pleasures.

 

Also check out the September Call Ups that I will be continuously updating on along with the AFL Roster Previews I am working on, starting with the Glendale Desert Dogs. I've also put a poll for you guys to fill out if you would like.

 

Aside from the Pioneer League (R+), it's playoff time. The Gulf Coast (R) and Arizona (R) Leagues have wrapped up their seasons with the Red Sox taking home the GCL title and the Indians winning the AZL. The Appalachian League (R+)  finals are now set with Johnson City set to face Atlanta's affiliate, the Danville Braves. The Florida State (A+) and Northwest (A-) Leagues coninue their semi-finals today with each being a three game series to see who advances. All full season leagues, except for the AA Southern League begin their playoffs today. Each league is different in how many rounds and how many games each series consists of. That breakdown will come in the probable starters section.

 

As always, you can find all your favorite prospects and sleepers below.

 

The Top 150 Prospects and Sleepers

 

On the bottom of the spreadsheet there are tabs for the Top 150 Hitters (Top 150 H), Pitchers (Top 150 P), Sleeper Alerts! Helium Tank, Tempurpedics, 2014 First Round Picks, and recent International Free Agents (IFA). Check it out by clicking the link/header above and a new window will pop up.
