I felt like now would be a good time to explain what I’m going to be doing now that we have actual games to follow. Tomorrow I’ll be posting a wrap-up of the prospect grades, and then I’m going to focus my attention on getting in gear for the season. As of now, I’m going to handle all of the writeups/previews, but I’m also going to be looking to enlist the services of a few ambitious contributors to help in this task as the season progresses. I’ll give more on that at a later date, so stay tuned. Basically, once the minor league season begins, I’ll be writing two posts every day, one recapping the previous night’s games, and one previewing the upcoming day’s game action. I figured I’d use the Phillies/FSU game as a template. Here is how the review post will look every day
The Phillies downed Florida State by a 12-4 margin tonight. Click here for the box score. Prospect action of note:
Kyle Drabek: 2 IP, 2 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 K
Alfredo Simon: 2 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 2 K
Joe Bisenius: 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K
Jim Ed Warden: 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 K
Michael Bourn: 2 AB, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 R,
Pretty simple, huh? But, it will give you everything you need to know about the previous night’s game. If anything of note occurred, I’ll make a note of it, but I’m mainly going to be highlighting the performance of actual prospects in the game, not roster filler guys. As I mentioned earlier, I’m going to also try and recruit some people to help do game writeups of games they attended, things they noticed, pictures they took, etc etc. I want as many contributions to the cause as I can get. Also, I’ll do a “prospect hot list” every Monday, highlighting the best/worst performers of the past week, and other little features like that, as well as passing along articles/links and all of that other good stuff. I’m really excited about this season, and I’m hoping this site can develop into a useful minor league resource for all things Phillies prospects. But, I’m going to really need the help of those of you who visit every day, and I really hope that we can foster some solid discussion here and learn some stuff as the season progresses.
