Good morning everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for March 17, 2018.

With the Top 175 Prospects list completed and the organization lists updated, it is time to turn towards regular season mode with the restoration of Gameday. It is a short gameday today and tomorrow but on Monday we’ll start having daily prospect notes and performance summaries from spring training, similar to what we do during the regular season.

Other items in the works:

****Articles about prospects who did not reach the Top 175 but who I particularly like for one reason or another. This will include sleepers and breakout candidates for each team. This will certainly be a multi-article project and the main focus for the remainder of spring camp.

****Farm system rankings.

****I haven’t written about or even studied the 2018 MLB draft at all yet. That will change.

****An “organization report” on the state of the Shadow Twins farm system.

****Contributions from Wayne Cavadi, Asher Feltman, Clinton Riddle, Shaun Kernahan, Jacob Markle, and Chris Mitchell. We had hoped to have Emily Waldon on board as well but she chose to pursue an opportunity at The Athletic. We wish her all success in her endeavors.

****What other kinds of articles are you guys interested in?
