could be a good move by Cashman (to keep Duncan) .. i wouldn't make a big deal of AFL stats either, but Duncan's breakout is a little eye opening because he's showing defenite big #'s for the first time

i'd also take a look at Andre Ethier of the Oakland A's. he's proving that his breakout this year was no fluke .... its also interesting to watch what Alex Gordon and Jeff Clement do, and maybe James Loney.. other then that, im not taking AFL stats seriously (especially for pitchers)

absolutely. kendrick has been sick since he's been in the minors. the angels have a bunch of studs coming up soon. morales, howie, mathis and wood have to be in the majors in 2 years.


don't forget Alberto Callaspo.. he's doing great all year and straight into the Venezuelan League .. then theres Aybar, the Angels are stacked 3X on the middle-infield (ahem.. trades)

"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

There actually is some fantasy relevance from the AFL.

Last year's .avg and rbi leader was Chris Shelton, the SB leader was Joey Gathright, the 2b leader was Ryan Howard, and the ERA leader was Huston Street.

You should definitely take a look at the AFL. Remember however that it is a hitting dominant league because many teams don't want to overwork their young arms after a long season. I use the numbers from the AFL as a guide because it can lead me to the players that teams are high on. I then crosscheck to see how their numbers in the shortseason AFL compared to what they did in their regular minor league season. I put more weight on what they did in the past years (and even experience prior to that). The AFL is still part of the equation though.
