Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Friday, August 19th. Here are some items worthy of discussion as we head into the weekend.

****Boston Red Sox pitching prospect Michael Kopech fanned 11 in six innings of work for High-A Salem yesterday. He also fanned 11 in his last start on August 13th. Overall on the season he has a 1.29 ERA in 49 innings over 10 starts between Salem and short-season Lowell, with a 75/26 K/BB and just 27 hits allowed.

****At Faketeams, Domenic Lanza looks at a trio of young San Diego Padres "not quite prospects:" Alex Dickerson, Travis Jankowski, and Ryan Schimpf.

.****Another interesting interview at Fangraphs today, with David Lauria talking with San Francisco Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti.

****Carson Cistulli with his weekly Fringe Five prospects at Fangraphs is always worth a gander.

****Can somebody here summarize the meaning of this Hardball Times article by Scott Powers in a brief paragraph? Pretend you have to explain it to Tony LaRussa.
