    The DSL schedules are out for 2019 and it reminds me how much I hate unbalanced schedules.

    Boca Chica North East – 6 teams; 72 games
    Boca Chica San Pedro – 8 teams; 72 games
    Boca Chica Baseball City – 6 teams; 72 games
    Boca Chica North West – 8 teams; 72 games
    Boca Chica North – 8 teams; 72 games
    Boca Chica South – 9 teams; 64 games

    I would hope Reyes gets 3-4 innings in. And Cabrera will likely piggyback,

    Cabrera is Monday’s scheduled starter for Memphis. My guess is that Arauz is the long man, but we will see…

    BHC, the DSL schedule is a practical matter. While the Dominican Republic may seem small to us, their travel infrastructure is not to our standards. The divisions are set up (just like in the GCL) to keep travel down. That is a big reason why the divisions are imbalanced. It depends on the locations of the various academies. Another is that not every organization has two teams, which also complicates matters. The primary focus is player development, not winning titles.

    As predicted, Harold Arauz has followed Gregerson. I would guess they’d like him to take the final three innings.

    Going into the final inning, Memphis had a four run lead. Among them, Arauz, Fasola and Shreve allowed nine runs. Unless the Redbirds can come back in the home half, Fasola will take the painful loss.

    Memphis’ bullpen is killing that team. Yikes.

    On another note one has to wonder how much longer the Cardinals are going to keep playing Nick Plummer. Sure the money has been spent but to be frank, he stinks. Putrid. In 15 games this season he’s hitting .093/.259/.209 and for his 5 year career he’s hitting .202/.352/.317. At some point you just gotta admit he’s a bust and he’s not gonna make it. At this point he seems to be getting quality playing time that could be used for other prospects. I’m not big on giving up on young players (he’s only 22) but he hasn’t done anything in his 4 actual season to make me (or anyone) think he’s going to succeed.

    Oviedo may soon be primed for Springfield.

    Springfield still has not won on the road but has lost only one at home. Weird.
