According to our knowledgeable posters, 2nd round pick Blake Smith has been promoted to Odgen and slugging outfielder Mario Songco has been promoted to Great Lakes. Songco and Russell at Great Lakes should put on quite a show in batting practice. These guys are built different but their game is the same. Great power, good eye, terrible contact skills. I don't think Songco is close to the outfielder that Russell but we will find out in a few weeks when we check in with our Great Lakes correspondent.
While I like the firstinning.com website the fact it was down for two days made me search for other alternatives. Minor League Splits is also an exceptional site for minor league information. They also provide daily box scores and the top performances of the day including the game score for each pitcher. Once on the Dodger minor league page you can click on the previous day link to look at the box scores and performances from the day before which makes putting the box score data on our site moot.
Also don't forget to check out the updated top 15 list and give me your thoughts.
Slowly we are going to make this your minor league one stop shopping source.
