    Minor-League Player of the Day (2014)

    If people are sufficiently interested, I wouldn't mind doing the Minor-League Player of the Day again this year. But if so, I'd like to enlist some regular help to ease the grind. I'm thinking in terms of maybe two to five folks taking a particular day of the week on a steady basis. Sunday morning, especially, is one that's tough for me. But any ol' day will do.

    I'd like, if possible, to retain a consistent form. To that end, I've pasted a template day from last August.

    So, what do you think . . . texasdave? lollipop? M2? RedlegJake? Van Hot? mth? OGB? OnBase? Anybody?

    Here's the rough template:

    Saturday, August 24: Ismael Guillon, Dayton . . . 6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K. After a wild and wretched first half of the season, the 21-year-old lefty is finally on a roll. Over his last six starts, he has permitted just 6 ER in 33.2 IP (1.60 ERA). His OPS-against for August is .583.

    Also notable . . .

    Ryan LaMarre: 3-3, 3B, SB (22). Has hit in eight straight games. Seems like a different player lately.

    Mike Costanzo: 2-3, 2B, BB, R, RBI.

    Daniel Renken: 6 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K.

    Chris Manno: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K.

    Trevor Bell: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, Sv (17). ERA 1.50.

    Sharky Rogers: 7 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K.

    Billy Hamilton: 2-5, 2B, R, RBI. Delivered a walkoff single in the ninth.

    Neftali Soto: HR #14, 2 RBI.

    Henry Rodriguez: 2-4, 2B.

    Kris Negron: 2-4, SB (10).

    Emmanuel Burris: 1-2, BB, R.

    Feliz Perez: 1-3, 2B, BB, R.

    Daniel Pigott (Dayton): 2-4, 2 2B, R, 4 RBI.

    Seth Mejias-Brean: 2-3, BB, 2 R. Up to .306.

    Beau Amaral: 3B, R.

    Ben Lively (Billings): 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. It's getting a little ridiculous, as the 0.73 ERA would attest.

    Avain Rachal: 3-4, HR #4, 3 RBI. The 19-year-old second baseman might start popping up in the prospect ratings (within the organization, that is).

    Adam Matthews: 2-3, 3B, BB, R.

    Daniel Wright: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.

    Joe Mantoni: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K, Sv (5). At 22, this year's 18th-rounder has flashed an 0.57 ERA in his 15.2 IP.

    Joey Housey (Bakersfield): 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K. The former Oregon star is on his third club this year.

    Junior Arias: 2-4, 2B, R.

    Steve Selsky: 2-4, 2 RBI.

    John De Leon (DSL Rojos): 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. He's 6-foot-4 and 19.

    Anthony Rubicondo: 2-4, 2 RBI. The young second baseman has been making a little noise.

    On board for keeping this good thing going. Just assign me a day, mace. Sundays are fine.

    I will take a day. But it has to be a weekday. I work 12-hour shifts on the weekend. Just sign me up for whichever day. Player of the Day is a great thread.

    Outstanding, fellas. Lollipop, Sunday is yours. (By that, I mean Sunday's post for the games of Saturday). That should start this week, since games begin on Thursday night.

    Tex, how about Wednesday (games of Tuesday night)? That means you're off until next week.

    Thank you thank you.

    The floor is still open.

    I love this stuff Mace, but I've been super busy the last month or so. The wife has a serious illness and takes almost 100% of my free time to care for her. I sneak posting in when she's sleeping and I'm not worn out myself, but can't really commit to anything on a such a regular schedule. Otherwise, I'd take a couple of days. Love this stuff and looking forward to it. Sorry I can't be more help.

    Thanks for the response, mth. I'm sure your wife appreciates your devotion, and I applaud you for it.

    I love reading this thread.. Would love to see in 2014, even if a few days get skipped due to lack of time for people to do their day.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I can't commit yet, but I'd be willing to do a day, I think. Will know by the end of the weekend.

    I hope for her speedy recovery. Best wishes.

    My thoughts are with you both, mth - I've had to let Redszone slide a bit in the past myself so I completely understand. Family is always first!!

    I'd be happy to help out. This thread was my favorite of 2013. Thursday is my day off, so I can take it.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
