Before I jump into the whole topic for the day, I wanted to let everyone know that in the latest Redleg Nation podcast with Chad, that I made some comments about Amir Garrett and his being out of options. Well, it would seem that I was incorrect when I made that statement and that he will be one of the rare players who should qualify for a 4th option year. I wrote all about it here if you want more information on how it seemed to slip through the cracks for so long among all of the beat writers, myself, and well, everyone.
Now, onto the topic of the day. It’s been six weeks since we last had one of these, and it’s going to be the final one that takes place during the minor league season – which ends the first week of September for all of the non-Billings teams. If you have some questions about the minors, or minor leaguers, now is the time to get them answered. Here are the rules:
- Try to avoid questions that will require me to look up answers (such as: Who was the last guy to steal 25 bags and hit 25 home runs in the system).
- Try to avoid overly long answer-type questions. I tend to give thorough and detailed answers as it is, so please don’t have me type out a novel.
- Each user can ask TWO (usually three – but I’ve got a very busy day today) questions.
- Ask your questions before 9PM and I will be sure to answer it. If you ask after 9PM on Wednesday, then I can’t guarantee that I will answer your question.
