Morning Report: Above Average Hitters for the League

Sometimes when looking at numbers for hitters, the thing that gets lost is the difference in league production. An example would be comparing stats from the South Atlantic League with the Florida State League. The SAL is usually a neutral environment, favoring neither hitters nor pitchers. That’s unless you play in Asheville, where anything goes […]

2014 Bristol Pirates Season Recap and Top 10 Prospects

Earlier today I wrote about how the addition of the Bristol Pirates led to an older team in Jamestown, which didn’t feature a lot of top talent.
