    Anyelo Polanco must be a 2008 signee. His name doesn't show up anywhere in the milb.com database.

    Surprising that Junior Arias is not there.

    Yeah, I was a bit surprised by his absence especially with Duran and Yorman on there.

    Will we get to hear anything about how these prospects look during their time there? I have not payed attention much to the minor league side of things in the past as I am now.

    Perhaps his real name is Anyelo Polanco....

    I like seeing these names getting some added attention. I am especially excited that Yen-Wen Kuo is thought well enough of to be considered for further instruction. My guess is they wouldn't bother if it wouldn't really help his chances any, but I could be wrong I guess. Then again I see Miguel Rojas is listed so I take that back.

    BTW Theodis Bowe is one sweet name isn't it, he sounds like a star linebacker.

    I wouldn't ignore Byron Wiley. After a slow start in which he wasn't getting much playing time, he tore up the Pioneer League.

    Wow, Jerry Gil will feel like Methuselah with that group. Maybe in the evenings he can tell them stories of the old days around the campfire...

    Gil pitches to Duran......

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Not a big deal, but I expected Cody Puckett to be there too.

    Pretty much what I thought also when I seen him mixed in there. He might get to share his cup a joe he had with the fellas to wet their appetite for moving up quickly.

    saw one of Wiley's games on FoxSports, the guy is built like a Linebacker and can fly. He hit a homer in the game I saw, it was to dead centerfield it looked like he was reaching out for an outside pitch
