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. The estimated release is Monday, September 8th for your viewing pleasures. It is 95% complete.

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.

It's playoff time, folks! Congratulations go out to the Appalachian League (R+) champions as the finals are now completed with the Johnson City Cardinals (STL - R+) taking home the glory. The Gulf Coast (R) and Arizona (R) Leagues have wrapped up their seasons as well with the Red Sox taking home the GCL title and the Indians winning the AZL.  The rest of the full and short season league's are now under way or complete. 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 along with where the series stands.

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