Apparently, we still have a farm system.
Radio voices Jesse Goldberg-Strassler (Lansing), Marshall Kelner (Dundedin, David Fine (Lansing), Ben Wagner (Buffalo) Danny Nokes (Bluefield) and Tom Gauthier and Bob Lipman (New Hampshire) haven't been traded off (though, in Jesse's cause, he trade broadcasts for a day), and will be discussing the state of each of their teams this afternoon.
Give them you questions in the thread below.
Here is Jesse's summary:
11 Minor League pitchers were traded away from the Blue Jays' system... but not Conner Greene, nor Clinton Hollon! The former dropped a career-high 10 strikeouts down on the Florida State League, while the latter made a smashing Midwest League debut with seven one-hit scoreless innings. Dunedin broadcaster Marshall Kelner and Lansing broadcaster David Fine offer their insights and observations; Triple-A Buffalo voice Ben Wagner drops by to talk Phillippe Aumont, Roemon Fields and The Herd; Double-A New Hampshire honors franchise wins leader Casey Lawrence; and the Bluefield Blue Jays are affected by rain. Check out #AroundtheNest for the latest insights and outlooks, hosted by Lugnuts broadcaster Jesse Goldberg-Strassler!
Question of the Week: In honor of Mike Hessman becoming the all-time MiLB home run champion and Casey Lawrence becoming the all-time Fisher Cats wins leader, who are other minor league players you've come across who deserve recognition for their feats?
My question would be about pitching, since we have traded so many pitchers away, who would they say are the best pitching prospects at each level?
