    Minor League Updates Format

    Maybe I'm asking for too much here but I'd like to see a recap of the previous night's minor league games without having to sift through the minor league "game threads". Is there any way we could have a minor league game update thread and then the next morning have a seperate overall minor league recap and discussion thread?

    My blog does weekly capsules every Tuesday. Good way to catch up on a bunch of action at once in a format that gives you some perspective on how the game went, not just a jumble of numbers (like a box score).

    I would definitely like to see that. I'm constantly blown away at the effort put into the play by plays of the minor league games, but a lot of the discussion gets lost in the pages and pages of PBP. Having a seperate thread for recap and discussion would be sweet.

    I am going to try to get back into the swing of posting the "highlights" from each minor league game like I was doing last year for quite awhile. After I list all stats for each team then others went behind and posted game stories and discussion.

    I will go ahead and post how I did last year and see if it sticks. I can recap each day at around 7:30am because I work 3rd shift.

    I'm not a fan of posting the whole boxscore because that means everyone has to sift through the whole boxscore just to see who did well.

    I'll give it a go and see what happens.

    I know that what I do isn't the most timely thing, but it seems like it would work well for people who want to keep up without having to come back to a forum or website every day. My summaries also contain more commentary and opinion than the typical stock recaps you find on MiLB.com, etc.
