Minor League Playoff Wrapup

Congrats to the Akron Rubberducks for winning the EL Championship with a 3-0 sweep of the Trenton Thunder.

"Rubberduckies you're the one, you make baseball so much fun, Rubberduckies, I'm awfully fond of you."

Columbus lost in the first round 3-1

Lynchburg lost in the Carolina League finals 3-1

AZL Indians lost in the first round 1-0.

Of note is that Mike Papi concluded the season (both regular season and the playoffs) VERY hot and showing VERY GOOD power.   This essentially bookends his season where his first couple of weeks were smokin' at Lymchburg.   So the guy remains an intriguing prospect.  It is hard to tell what is going on with him as, in watching him, I don't get why he looks so physically weak at the plate sometimes.  But I guess that is why I am typing and others are coaching.  Now, Mike, all we have to do is work in your performance in May, June, July and August and you will be a stud prospect once again.   With the loss of Clint Frazier, we need Papi to step up to replace him as a star in the making.
