But Will Peoria Play in Phoenix?

Kyler Burke had three hits including a solo HR and an RBI single, but it wasn't enough, as the Peoria Chiefs were defeated by the Kane County Cougars (Oakland A's "Lo-A" affiliate) 9-5 at the Papago Park Sports Complex in Phoenix today (and yes, I did watch both games simultaneously)...

Here is today's abridged box score (Peoria Chiefs players only)...

Two games at once with accurate score books - pure awesomeness!

Finally, the myth is solved. AZ Phil is really Vishnu.

Negative. AZ Phil is an actual person. He's Keyser Soze.

That's only partly true. Keyser Soze is one of the Avatars of Vishnu.

Whoa

Thanks for the updates Phil! Great stuff as usual!

Unrelated to the thread... but tonight I learned, courtesy of YES network, that: - The Cubs may have led the NL Central in runs scored - The Cubs had a great bullpen last year - The Cubs just need to shore up their starting rotation, and they will be in every game

not much interest in Gaudin, plenty in Guzman...

meh...i sense a guzman trade and a long-man gaudy in our future. guzman's crappy spring, injury history, lack of options, and only having 2 days to trade him won't help, either. there's no way a guy with his stuff passes through waivers.

I live in the small town Midwest and am very glad I'll hopefully get to see Vitters in the flesh a few times before he jumps classes.

There once was a spring training from nantucket Who's schedule was so long Chad would suck it Goodbye, Hohokam Park Rob, why do you hate the Shark? I'm ready for real baseball, let's start it!

555. Nice.

    I hope all is well with AZ Phil. Hasn't posted in a few weeks and typically would expect him to have a post up tracking IFA signings. Maybe he's waiting for something official from the Cubs (who don't seem to have announced any of the signings officially)?

    As best as I understand, there are the 4 full-season levels with only one affiliate per organization at each level, and the compound league. Toss in the DSL, and that's it. If a team wants and can accommodate a second (or third) Compound League team, that's a decision for "later than January".

    AZ Phil or others - Are major league teams allowed to announce new minor league affiliates for 2022 during this lockout? I ask because there was some discussion about possibly adding a short season league team for next year. Are clubs even allowed to have a 5th non-rookie league team? With all the players jammed up at the A level, it seems like it would be smart to add an additional team for them and this year's incoming draft picks. Of course, they could always just keep two Arizona teams going and it would probably be just fine. Just wondering - thanks and Happy New Year!

    cameron maybin is retiring, which saves the cubs from once again obtaining or attempting to obtain cameron maybin.

    2022 looking good so far.
