Not Reds related, but Giants prospect Angel Villalona is currently in jail awaiting trial for murder. Reportedly he shot a man for not giving up his seat in the VIP area of a bar. Sounds incredibly far fetched to me, but at the same time there are some crazy people out there.
The Arizona Fall League will not be the only state side fall/winter league. There will be an ‘AFL Jr’ that is basically replacing the Hawaiian Winter League as the league to send plays from A/AA. Good to hear. It will start up September 24th, which is in 2 days. So far I haven’t seen anything that has shown the teams or players or even a place to follow the action. Hopefully there is something though and its not an ‘instructional league’ situation where there is nothing to follow. The orginal AFL will start October 10th.
The team that took out the Bats in the playoffs will be playing tonight on ESPN2 in the ‘Bricktown Showdown’ where the IL Champ takes on the PCL Champ to claim a ‘AAA Championship’.
Willy Taveras was activated today. Lets see how much Drew Stubbs plays now….
What do you guys want to see first, State of the Farm or Draft Review? One of them will start tomorrow, you guys can pick.
