Minor leagues Monday


Re: Minor League Thread 2015 8:43 AM Omaha lost a wild one to Salt Lake, 11 to 10. Salt Lake getting most of their runs late. Altmonte gave up 3 runs over 5. Omaha hitting: Homers from Fuentes (7th), Calixte (7th) and Martinez (8th). Martinez and Eibner continue their hot hitting. Martinez 3 for 5 at .373. Eibner .304. I think these guys should be looked at late if we have a good lead. (That doesn't mean they're in the playoffs). Martinez hits a high altitude bomb: NWA and Wilmington off last night.. Wilmington plays two starting at 4 this afternoon. Lex won 4 to 2 over West Virginia. Toups (2nd) 2 for 4 at .292. Toups hit his 7th. Downes, Miller, Duenez, and Hill also had 2 hits. IDF beat Billings 9 to 8. Catcher Kyle Pollock 2 for 4 with a homer at .307. Cody Jones 3 for 5, DJ Burt, 2nd baseman. 2 for 3, walk, sac, fly. Amolan Fukofuka, rf, 3 for 5 at .338. I wouldn't want to be a pitcher in that league. Pollock vid, no audio. Burlington Royals lost to Pulaski 14 to 4. DH Xavier Fernandez 3 for 4 at .348. Home run. Catcher Colton Frabasilio 3 for 4 at .294. LF Ben Johnson (.289) home run.

Brad Ausmus thinks Johnny Cueto's delivery is illegal


"Really, the way the rule reads, you're not supposed to even alter your motion," Ausmus said after the Tigers' 4-0 loss. "That's the way the rule reads. They don't enforce it. Well, (Joe West) said if he stops it's an illegal pitch."

Funny thing happened at work. I work at the local Target and someone from the Royals came in and bought all of the balls that we sell that are meant for autographs since they are regulation balls because they didn't have any for the game today.


Royals set April TV ratings record


"The Royals’ 12.1 average rating was not just the best rating for a major-league team on a regional network, it was the best April for a regional baseball network since 2002."
