    AFL Starts tonight

    The Reds team plays a night game at 9:30 EDT. They act like Gameday will be available for it.

    Hey guys. Don't know too much about MiLB. What's the talent level in the AFL?

    Mesoraco hits an opposite field 2-run HR in his first atbat! Wow.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    It's a mixed bag, 320. Some AAA guys, a lot of AA guys, and some lower level prospects. It's a good amount of talent, but all over the map.

    Cool. Mesoraco (sp?) I've heard a lot about. Is Kris Negron any good?

    Re: AFL Starts tonight

    If you add that homer in with his regular season, Mesoraco now has 27 HR in 398 atbats this season.

    Only one player below AA is allowed, but there's a mix of really good prospects (Mesoraco) and space fillers (Avery)

    320, Negron was the shortstop at AA this year, and played well. Not a super prospect, by any stretch, but good eye, good speed, good defense, good makeup.

    There will be some pitch F/X data available. Two of the stadiums have it installed and like years past, will be running for the games.

    Mesoraco is 2-for-3 with a HR and 3 RBI. He's driven in all three runs for Peoria.

    Mes finished up 3-4 with the 3 RBIs. He's kinda good.

    Negron went 0-3 with 2 Ks.

    Dave Sappelt got into the game for a couple ABs but went 0-2 with 2 Ks as well, including one to end the game with the tying run on 3rd.

    Nice little start by Mesoraco. At first I was thinking the Reds should give him some rest after such a great season, but might as well let him continue his tear!
