  1. Hamilton is slugging .412 in AA. He has 25 BB with 27 SO. He was a slap hitter in Dayton last year(which I have no problems with from a leadoff hitter). But I was reading an article that someone post here yesterday that said they are converting him to a line drive hitter.

  2. Depriving us of our daily Hamilton update, 1-3, 2b, bb, 1 rbi, 1 cs. Now I feel better 😀

  3. It’s so great to see Tucker busting out of his slump…he had a little of a rough start to AA, but has been hitting much better in August.

  4. You look at how BAD Louisville is and you wonder why Scott Carroll was released. I’m not saying he’s a great prospect, but look at what’s there now and you wonder what the organization was thinking..

  5. Louisville didn’t have much starting pitching this year and the hitting was horrible for the April/May. Hitting only improved slightly. When it did they won 12 in a row. Players from AA will be filling in several positions next year in Louisville. This was some decent prospects can have two years at AAA.
