I figured i would start a thread for each of the Minor League Affiliates AAA, AA, and A and we can talk about the prospects there and their progress.

Raiders i am hoping for tons of updates from you on the Durham crowd ;-) :-D

Not a problem. I will definitely be there quite a bit especially once it warms up a bit more. Definitely glad to see Niemann pitch well yesterday. I love the the fact that he is pretty much on a 5 innings limit for right now as well, as that will keep his pitch count under control for this year. The one thing we can not afford is to lose him due to overuse this year.

Could not agree more. I think they are handling the staff very well. I noticed that the majority of the pitchers when they are in Durham seem to pitch better, do you think Riggans is part of that behind the plate? The pitching Coach? or is it just the talent they are facing?

There is a huge talent difference between AAA and the big leagues which is why some of our sucky pitchers can do well in Durham.

I got a chance to see a bit of the game on TV, and Sonnastine looked good until the 6th inning. In fact I think the Bulls were leading 4-1 going into the 6th, but Sonnastine just ran out of gas.
