Re: Minor League Transactions
The Carolina club would not agree on that second paragraph in my last post.
Unfortunately, the Mudcats are feeling the talent void in the system that the A-clubs have felt over the last couple years.
Generally speaking, you don't improve your clubs within a season by doing a ton of promoting from within the system. When you run into what Carolina has hit this year, the only quick-fix is to go out a sign a bunch of guys released out of Triple-A. That is certainly not an ideal position to have to be in and no one would want that, but that is what you have to do (and they have tried to do that, to their credit. It just has not worked well because there was so little production from the guys who came up through the system).
