  1. Mississippi was routed in Game 4, 11-2. Woods looked sharp early but left with two on in the 4th. Both runs scored, then the Biscuits poured it on. The deciding game will be tomorrow with Alan Rangel getting the ball.
  2. Had 'em all the way.
  3. Due to COVID, they simplified the playoff system. The two teams with the best record (in this case Mississippi and Montgomery) play a 5-game series to determine the champion. It's confusing, but the whole league is called the Double-A South. The two divisions are the Double-A South North Division and the Double-A South South Division. The teams used to be in the Southern League, but for legal reasons MLB cannot use that name since they took complete control over the affiliate system and the corporation called "Minor League Baseball" ceased operation.
  4. The M-Braves win Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead and come within a game of winning the Double-A South championship. This was a wild one with some crazy swings. The Braves held a 5-4 lead until the bottom of the 8th when they exploded for 6 runs to make a 11-4. Then in the top of the 9th Xavier Edwards hit a two-out grand slam off Indigo Diaz -- who allowed a total of one earned run the entire regular season for Mississippi. Hayden Deal came on and promptly gave up a homer, a walk, and a single to bring up the go ahead run. Nolan Kingham came on and got a strikeout to finally put the game to bed, earning his second consecutive save. Braves will go for the series win tomorrow. RHP William Woods is set to make his AA debut in the start.
  5. Oh, I really like the pitching match-ups you guys. Even Sunday.
  6. Chavez can even "stay" in the game to pitch the 6th.
  7. Crappy ending, but the Braves are 4-3 on this road trip so far. You take that any day. Let's eliminate the Padres this weekend and clinch next week at home.
  8. Mississippi evened the series at 1-1 with an 8-5 win last night. Freddy Tarnok struck out 7 in 4.1 innings, Trey Harris knocked in 3 runs, Wendell Rijo launched a 3-run homer, and Greyson Jenista also homered. Brandon White, Corbin Clouse, and Nolan Kingham starred in relief. The series resumed Friday in Mississippi with Spencer Strider scheduled to start for the M-Braves.
  9. This will be an interesting offseason for Detroit. Their young pitching is already getting some major league success. Riley Green and Spencer Torkelson will likely debut early next season.
  10. Montgomery tops Mississippi in Game 1, 7-1. The Biscuits held the Braves to 3 hits. Here is this week's Farm Report.
  11. I really like the pitching match-ups you guys. William Woods potentially will make his AA debut in a championship-clinching game.
  12. Lots of rumors that 2020 4th-rounder Bryce Elder may be called up to make his major league debut as the starting pitcher tomorrow.
  13. I really do like these pitching match-ups you guys.
  14. Their source is anonymous, but it rhymes with A Lay Stellar.
  15. Rome's season comes to an unceremonious end as the Hickory Crawdads have to follow COVID protocols and do testing and contact tracing, cancelling the final game of the season. They were rained out the night prior. In this week's podcast, we preview Mississippi's playoff series and review the Augusta GreenJackets' 2021 season.
  16. Guessing he probably addressed the team to congratulate them on clinching a playoff berth. From where he's sitting, he's not doing any serious scouting.
  17. Muller deserves another shot.
  18. Here's this week's Farm Report and podcast.
  19. I really like the pitching match-ups you guys.
  20. If the Braves pop for a big-ticket improvement, I think it will be a) via trade and b) a position player.
  21. Yeah, and I obviously missed putting Ynoa in there. In fact, I'd say Ynoa is close to a lock, with Toussaint, Davidson, Muller, and Wright looking to be the primary 5th starter. Of course in spring training, you usually break camp with the 5 guys that are healthy vs the 5 guys you thought you'd go north with.
  22. Mississippi's magic number down to 3 with 10 games remaining.
  23. Nagging injury or they're thinking about giving Muller another crack would be my guesses. Muller is tonight's scheduled starter for Gwinnett, we'll see if he gets scratched.
  24. Still weird to me that so many tell me that young players with good minor league track records can never improve in the major leagues.
