Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Friday, September 8th, 2017.
I know some of you in Florida and along the eastern seaboard are battening down and/or evacuating as Hurricane Irma approaches. Please err on the side of caution, heed evacuation orders, and protect your families and loved ones. Property is replaceable. People are not.
Let’s talk about baseball.
****Yesterday’s highlights can be found in Thursday’s discussion thread.
