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 any time now, so be sure to check back often today.
Also check out the September Call Ups that I will be continuously updating 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 Northwest League (A-) champion Hillsboro Hops (AZ) as they wrapped up the finals with a 4-3 win. The Johnson City Cardinals (STL - R+) took home the Appalachian League (R+) title, and the Gulf Coast (R) and Arizona (R) Leagues have wrapped up their seasons as well. The Red Sox took home the GCL title and the Indians won the AZL. 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.
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.
