New, 9 comments

With turmoil in Anaheim, the boys on the farm decided to ring in the new month by playing baseball. Novel concept, I know.

Triple-A: Salt Lake Bees

Well, this one was a kick in the gut. Memo to Sacramento: Might want to work on those runners in scoring position. 20 hits and only four runs? Yikes.

Standout Stats

No extra-base hits by anyone in the Bees' lineup. Plenty of Ks, though. Each batter had at least one. Congrats, Alfredo, you were the best-smelling turd on the dung heap last night.

Class A Advanced: Inland Empire 66ers

Can we trade for this Reed cat from Lancaster? TWENTY dingers on the year already? Wow.

Standout Stats

This kid keeps making the most of his recent promotion to Inland Empire. Could we possibly have a home-grown hot-corner man?! PLEASE?!

After poor outings from each 66er pitcher who took the mound, including the classic BS/W from Brian Loconsole, Geoff Broussard came in and recorded a perfect save.

Class A: Burlington Bees

Standout Stats

Not a one. Every single batter had at least one strikeout and not one of them crossed the plate.

Robichaux has been pretty darn good lately. Who knows, maybe we have a diamond in the rough to add to our collection of 14-carat pitching depth.

Rookie: Orem Owlz

Standout Stats

How awesome would it be if Taylor Ward turned out to be an offensive juggernaut?

"Hi, Jerry? It's Arte. Any chance we could have a do-over?"

LOL. Just kidding. As if Arte pays attention to what the players are doing on the field!

Rookie: AZL Angels

Standout Stats

Trop didn't fare too well in his second rehab start in Tempe, but I'm just happy he's on his way back. Depending on what Stoneman does in the next month, we may need Nick sooner than later.

Rookie: DSL Angels

Standout Stats

Please let this kid crack the Angels' roster. The nicknames write themselves!

Hey, folks, on a personal note, I'll be in Chicago until July 11th for a much-needed summer vaycay. I'm hoping that watching a terrible Chicago White Sox team for a week will reinvigorate my love for an Angels organization that is really, really disappointing me this year. Thanks, all, for your kind words and suggestions as I continue to hone my skills as your daily minor-league correspondent!
