It is becoming apparent to me that the time I invest in preparing the recaps is far more than needed. Very little of what I report actually trickles into the comments section. In fact, it appears (to me at least), that the recap is just another venue for you to redundantly bitch about recent draft picks, blame players and scouts for injuries, condemn affiliates for promotions, and all manner of other negativity that is reminiscent of the forums over in another .com.
So, as my time is becoming increasingly more important to me, here is a bare bones recap.
Lehigh Valley and Reading lost in the 11th and 9th innings respectively.
Clearwater was outhit 12-4 yet was gifted a win on a couple of Mets’ errors.
Lakewood and Williamsport lost by identical 5-1 scores.
And, I watched Dalton Guthrie’s debut with the GCL Phillies and their movement into first place with a victory over the Blue Jays.
Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.
Now you can more quickly turn your attention to the more important business of criticizing all aspects of the organization. Which is your right here. I’m not saying you shouldn’t do that. It’s just that I don’t feel the need to spend hours producing a recap that only serves as a preface to a comment section, the recent nature of which I am no longer proud. And look how early I can publish this. Works for me.
Have at it.
