No link today, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on analysis columns on minor league related stuff. I'm running out of ideas. Post ideas in the comments and if I like them, I'll do them.
AAA: Toledo DNP (off-day)
Jacob Turner pitched five innings, allowing three earned runs while walking three, striking out two and allowing a homer. Not a great start, but it could have easily been worse. Lester Oliveros struck out six batters in two innings, which is incredibly special. Jamie Johnson was 4-5 with a stolen base, Fransisco Martinez and Brandon Douglas doubled and Bryan Holaday had a homer.

Brennan Smith gave up two earned runs in five innings, striking out five and walking one. Luis Castillo was 2-3 with a walk and Rob Brantly doubled.
