I'm seein' double here! Four Krustys!
Some notables on the farm. Bradley Jones had three homers down in Bluefield. John Stilson worked 98-100mph, and Angel Perdomo registered a nice start in Lansing.

There were some bad losses on the farm on Wednesday. Then there were some worse losses. There were no wins. New Hampshire had a 6-1 lead but Shane Dawson was left in too long and the bullpen added some gas to the fire. Casey Lawrence wasn't winning but the Bisons trailed 2-1 and Lawrence stayed in too long and again the bullpen added gas. Lansing's starter Jordan Romano left with a lead but, you guessed it, the bullpen coughed it up. Dunedin were no-hit through seven and ended with two infield hits. The GCL Jays lost the game and first place. Vancouver and Bluefield had routine losses.
The affiliates had a 3-5 record on Tuesday with a walk-off loss and an extra-innings setback tipping the scales the wrong way.
Just two years ago, the Los Angeles Angels won 98 games, more than any other team in the American League.
This year? Well...
When it starts to fall apart
Man, it really falls apart
The affiliates could have had a winning night but one affiliate blew a converted touchdown lead so they had to settle for a 4-4 Monday. Dunedin had the night off.
There were lots of runs in the affiliates games on Sunday. It was tough to choose the three stars among the hitters while most of the pitchers did not stake a claim. Dickie Thon hit a couple of home runs and picked up a couple of the not so nice hits on his body. Dwight Smith had three hits and was a double short of the cycle. Vlad Jr had two hits, one his eighth homer. Dalton Pompey had two hits, one a homer too. Max Pentecost had two hits but no home runs, he hit his on his Dunedin debut on Saturday. AJ Jimenez joined the round trippers club.
The Blue Jays hope to put on a good show in Cleveland this weekend.
On an otherwise night to forget down on the farm, Denis Diaz sparkled in six innings of work.
Over the last few days the Jays have parted ways with several members of our scouting and development staff. Gone are Scouting Director Brian Parker, National Crosschecker Blake Davis, and Minor League Field Co-ordinator Doug Davis.
The GCL Jays had the bats working and the pitching was good enough for the first seven innings to get the win. Buffalo singled their way to a win. Conner Greene had a bad day and New Hampshire took it on the chin. Lansing lost in extras. Vancouver lost many runners on the bases and, as a result, lost the game.
Dunedin only played an inning and a half before the rains came. Bluefield had the night off.
The affiliates won five of eight games with one game suspended due to rain. It was a good night for the top three farm clubs but not so much for Lansing to say the least and the other lower affiliates, save for the G-Jays.
A rough Monday night for the affiliates saw them drop seven out of 10, including a pair of doubleheaders.
The Blue Jays look to continue the momentum of a 4-2 homestand in the Bronx Zoo.
As I mentioned in the Series Thread, I was looking at the standings at the close of business yesterday and something struck me upside the head. Because there sit the Texas Rangers, with the best W-L record in the entire American League. They've done this by scoring 554 runs and allowing 555 runs.
Which seems a strange formula for success to be sure.
